The president of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation, Horacio Rosatti, referred last night to Alberto Fernández’s harsh criticism of the Judiciary during the legislative assembly and recognized the tension between the three powers. “When we received the invitation, we talked among the four ministers of the Court about what our representation would be like. We decided that he would be President and Vice President and we knew what the climate could be, but we were convinced that we do not have to let ourselves be won by passion, sympathy, or antipathy because we express an institutional representation ”, he expressed.
“The politician complains because he wants to transform reality with a norm and the judge prevents it because he declares it unconstitutional. There the judge usually says ‘Things cannot be done this way’. It is an almost permanent tension that makes the dynamics of the republican system and you have to get used to this situation, ”he explained in an interview on a cable channel.
Despite the discomfort of the moment, the member of the Court ruled out the possibility of withdrawing from Congress in the middle of the speech: “It would have been a triumph of subjectivity over objectivity expressed by the institution we represent.”
IMPEACHMENT OF THE SUPREME COURT
Although he did not want to comment on the investigation process that is being carried out in the Impeachment Committee of the Chamber of Deputies, he maintained: “We witnessed this situation and we will cope with it as we consider at each moment that we must cope with it.” In any case, he questioned: “Can judges be judged by sentences? Beyond this impeachment, the answer is no.”
He also criticized: “The Court does not invent the cases. It is not that one says ‘today I get up and I am going to mess with another state power’, the causes arrive. We act because they ask us to act. What cannot be said after requesting the performance is ‘you are not competent for this’”. And he marked: “It is not understood why I knock on the door and ask for justice and then say ‘whoever is answering me is not authorized’ to do so when I was the one who knocked on the door.”
