federal judge Maria Eugenia Capuchetti delegated to the prosecutor Carlos Rivolo the investigation into the assassination attempt on the vice president Cristina Fernandez de KirchnerJudicial sources informed Télam.
He did it while the Buenos Aires Federal Chamber analyzes whether to separate or maintain the judge in the investigation, based on a challenge raised by the complaint of the vice president who reproached the magistrate have halted different lines of research.
Despite having rejected his recusal and having prepared a report with which he intended to counter the criticism of the complaint, this afternoon Judge Capuchetti sought an alternative way out to try to decompress the tension around the investigation and delegated it.
“meeting lchallenge before that court (the Federal Chamber of Buenos Aires)I must find a procedural remedy that tends to the best administration of justice and the validity of the acts that are taken, hereinafter, with that goal,” said the judge.
The magistrate made the decision in the afternoon, after the hearing was held in which the lawyers for the vice president’s complaint demanded before the Buenos Aires Federal Chamber that Capuchetti be removed from the investigation and denounced that if they were frustrated “the possibility of the test” could have been to hide something.
“If they frustrated us with the possibility of testing, it’s because there was a catch,” said lawyer José Manuel Ubeira. in the hearing before the judge of room I of the appeals court Leopoldo Bruglia, who will now have to decide whether to support or remove the magistrate.
In the same direction, when leaving the federal courts of Comodoro Py, the lawyer stated that “if we continue to investigate, we get to where he does not want to go, to the PRO terminals” and then he said that there is a clue in the case linked to the national deputy of Together for Change Gerardo Milman, in addition to “hate speech from certain places”.

For the lawyers in the complaint, Judge Capuchetti showed a “complete lack of initiative” and would have “boycotted” lines of investigation, for which reason she cannot continue leading the case, as they expressed at the hearing, in which the judge intervened first. lawyer Marcos Aldazabal (who listed the irregularities in handling the case) and then Ubeira.
“The investigation is impossible like this,” Aldazabal said after listing what the complaint defines as “irregularities” in the investigation of the case: he assured that “the Federal Police were not investigated” (due to the delays in the arrest of Brenda Uliarte and the reset of Sabag Montiel’s cell phone), nor the track ‘Milman’, nor the line of Carrol”.
The “Milman track” is the one that began on September 23 from the testimonial statement of an adviser to the national deputy of La Cámpora Marcos Cleri.
The advisor assured before the court that on the afternoon of August 30, in the Casablanca bar located a few meters from Congress, he heard Milman say to two women the phrase “when they kill her, I’m on my way to the coast.”
The “Carrol line”, meanwhile, is the one referred to Hernán Carrol, the referent of the New Center Right to whom the detained and prosecuted Fernando Sabag Montiel – the man who tried to assassinate the vice president – assigned the mission of appointing a lawyer to defend him in the case.
The differences between the judge and the complaint became insurmountable after the magistrate’s decision to deny the seizure of the cell phone of Milman’s advisers who testified as witnesses in the case and first denied having been at the Casablanca bar on the 30th. August to later correct themselves when they were shown images proving their presence.
“If we want to straighten the course of this matter, removing Capuchetti could be the beginning”said the complainants during the hearing with Judge Bruglia, to whom they also clarified that they are not demanding “concrete results” for the investigation but rather that they want “all lines to be investigated to find out what happened.”
“The doubt has become unbearable, we cannot tolerate that the judge continues to be the judge in this case. The message that is given to the outside is that killing a Vice President is free and now we are in an electoral campaign. I don’t know if the client (Cristina Kirchner) will present herself or not (in elections), but next year she will campaign,” Ubeira emphasized during her speech.
“It is good that the federal courts take due note that if we expose this woman and tomorrow there is an attempt on her life because these little animals are still on the loose, someone is going to have to take responsibility and we will put Capuchetti at the head” , remarked the lawyer.
The hearing, which had been set since last week, was held after yesterday the complaint demanded that the investigation be expanded and that Fernando Sabag Montiel, Brenda Uliarte and Gabriel Carrizo be prosecuted for illicit association and that new security measures be urgently ordered. test, after detecting a series of WhatsApp messages that would account for the organized actions of the gang.
“Remember this date”, “This hdp (sic) is already dead”, “You don’t know what we did with this”, “Create fear”, “So that the government knows who they are messing with”, are some of the messages up to now unknown and sent from Carrizo’s cell phone, head of the group of alleged snowflake vendors for whom those who attacked the Vice President worked, according to the filing of the complaint.
According to the presentation to which Télam had access, The messages are contained in a report produced by the Directorate of Technological Support for Criminal Investigation (DATIP) of the Public Prosecutor’s Office (MPF) produced on October 26.
After reviewing the alleged irregularities in the investigation and referring to yesterday’s presentation, lawyer Aldazabal said: “We made the mistake of trusting that these irregularities were isolated errors, and that we can all make mistakes, but when it became a constant in the direction of the investigation we realized that this can only be a huge cause of investigative failure or bad faith. It is already evident that there is a huge lack of impartiality”.
Along the same lines, after leaving the courts, the lawyer stated that in the case there are lines of investigation on which the judge spends “hours or months doing nothing” and then assured that these are lines that she “boycotts” or on which “decisions are made that cause the test to end up being lost”.
