With a complaint against him and an investigation in the evidence collection phase, Mariano Borinsky, one of the judges of the Cassation Chamber who is being investigated for his visits to former President Mauricio Macri in the Olivos farm, gave a talk on Wednesday in the course “Axes of the Accusatory System”, and raised questions in the ruling party. It is an activity that has the endorsement of a website linked to the Minister of the Supreme Court Ricardo Lorenzetti.
In the early hours of Tuesday, María Bourdin, Lorenzetti’s right-hand man and editor of the portal Publyca.org, published on his Twitter account a flyer to promote Borinsky’s exhibition within the framework of a course they organized together with the Association of Federal Judges (Ajufe), made up of magistrates from all over the country.

The diffusion of the activity did not take long to trigger reactions. The main one was the national deputy of the Frente de Todos Rodolfo Tailhade, who shared the post and opined that Borinsky “He should be in prison but he gives courses and the Supreme Court sponsors him.”
The tone of the criticism is not accidental. The legislator of the ruling party was one of the signatories of the complaint filed last June against the chambermaid after the portal The uncovering revealed that Borinsky would have entered at least 15 times to play paddle tennis for the fifth presidency between 2016 and 2019 while in parallel he made relevant decisions in causes related to then-senator Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and Kirchner leaders.
Borinsky and the investigation into the visits to Macri
The complaint against Borinsky was presented last June with the signature of the pro-government deputies Leopoldo Moreau and Eduardo Valdes, and joined a previous cause for the call “Judicial Table” that the Minister of Justice had started Martin Soria. However, the chambermaid Leopoldo Bruglia understood that the presentation of the deputies had to be channeled separately, for which he sent the file to the court of Marcelo Martínez de Giorgi, with the intervention of the prosecutor Alejandra Mángano.

In July, the tax representative charged the chambermaid and Mauricio Macri. He also asked to expand the investigation based on the incorporation of test measures to determine if the meetings between the judge and the former president “They were an occasion for undue influence to extract judicial decisions”, according to its resolution.

According to what judicial sources have reported to PROFILE, at present the decisions regarding the case are in the hands of the judge who has pending a series of measures that aim to establish whether the accusation of undue influence of Macri on the official is valid. judicial. However, no relevant decisions have been made and the file has been paralyzed for some months.
Elisa Carrió asked that a report on the “judicial table” against her be declared null.
It is worth remembering that Macri himself acknowledged that Borisnky had visited him at the presidential residence while he was in charge of the Executive Branch. In fact, in statements to All News had stated that Borinsky “is a judge who made a very good Penal Code proposalay he played tennis simultaneously several times with me because we had mutual friends “.
Tailhade’s criticism and the organization’s response
Borinsky’s exhibition is scheduled for this Wednesday at 2.30 p.m. and will be broadcast through YouTube’s Publyca. In a query from this medium, Tailhade insisted with his questions by stating that “Instead of giving classes on the Accusatory Process, (Borinsky) should promote it since the system does not work because it does not suit judges like him because it attacks their positions of privilege “.
The legislator redoubled the bet and maintained that “in any serious country, a judge like Borinsky would have already been removed and imprisoned for committing crimes from the Magistracy “.
From the organization of the activity, for their part, they preferred not to focus on the questions but defended the chambermaid’s exposure since “It takes place in an open space in which we are oriented to the academic activities of the judges.”
