The Federal Chamber of Criminal Cassation is willing to that Mauricio Macri reaches the final of the World Cup in Qatar without surprises. The members of the court that must review their dismissal in the case of espionage against the relatives of the ARA San Juan divers They will hold a hearing on December 21 – three days after the decisive match in the World Cup – to listen to the complaints and the prosecutor’s office that ask that the investigation be continued.

the chambermaids Carlos Mahiques, Guillermo Yacobucci and Angela Ledesma They have Macri’s future in their hands in the file that investigates how the Federal Intelligence Agency (AFI) spied on the families of the 44 crew members of the ARA San Juan while they claimed to know what had happened to the submarine.

Last week, the Prosecutor Raúl Pleé requested that the dismissal be revoked Macri and the rest of the defendants in the case. For Pleé, there is no way to sustain – as the Federal Chamber did – that the espionage was justified because the security of the President or the country was at risk.

Days before, the plaintiff lawyer Valeria Carreras had requested that a public hearing be convened so that the parties could expose what are the elements they have so that Macri and the ex-hierarchs of the AFI cambiemita continue to be prosecuted. Room II granted part of his request. Although the hearing will be held on December 21 at 10:30 a.m., it will not be in person – as the lawyer had claimed.

Carreras told Page 12 that he will insist with face-to-face and points out that there is an intention of the court to keep behind the scenes the case involving the former president. “This decision is in contrast to the precedent of the Federal Chamber of Comodoro Rivadavia which, in the midst of the Covid pandemic and with the province of Chubut in strict isolation, prioritized face-to-face meetings to hold the appeal hearing in the case on the responsibilities in the sinking. of the submarine,” says Carreras. In Comodoro Py, there was also a face-to-face hearing when the complaint challenged the prosecutor José Agüero Iturbe in the case of the file. “We wonder what is the room’s fear: a Covid contagion or having to endure the forcefulness of this part?emphasizes the lawyer.

Room II by two of its members –Mahiques and Yacobucci– has been showing signs of not wanting to give too much importance to the case. The two judges rejected that the Center for Legal and Social Studies (CELS) intervene in the case as amicus curiae (friend of the court) because it does not recognize “competence” in the matter as if the illegal surveillance of the families of the victims was not a matter of human rights.

CELS filed an appeal for the judges to reconsider their refusal, but, in less than 24 hours, they closed the door again. Everything happened without giving intervention to the parties, as claimed by the third judge, Ledesma.

Macri is in a hurry to close the espionage chapter, which brings you so many headaches in the Juntos por el Cambio internship. Weeks ago, his lawyer, Pablo Lanusse, had asked the Cassation to move forward with the review of Macri’s situation. Last July, the chambermaids Mariano Llorens, Pablo Bertuzzi and Leopoldo Bruglia revoked the prosecution that Judge Martín Bava had issued in Dolores. It will be necessary to see if Room II breaks speed records in a case without detainees and arrives with a resolution before the fair in January.

Macri announced in Comodoro Py that he would travel to Qatar because he is in charge of the FIFA Foundation. On Tuesday, he was seen in the match in which the Argentine team debuted with a defeat against Saudi Arabia.
