Pronouncement of the lawyers of the Argentine republic on the disapperance of Santiago Maldonado
"Responsibilities are always political"
Patricia Bullrich Pueyrredón
(APL) "Justice for Santiago and for so many fighters, consists of sweeping the face of the system against which they fought and enthroned society and the future of their dreams," they say from the Association of Lawyers and Lawyers, entity "We have been insisting that, for too long, we have become accustomed - we have been accustomed - to interpret reality as if it were a judicial file or a - bad - police novel," at the beginning of its pronouncement. At the same time, they point out that: Responsibilities are always political. Any pretense of directing the criminal attribution to their political leaders runs counter to the elementary fact that, in addition to appointing judges, these are usually the authors of criminal laws and, of course, do not have the custom - so widespread, on the other hand , among the popular leadership - of "spitting up" or "pissing against the wind," as one prefers. Below, complete pronouncement.
From the Lawyers 'and Lawyers' Guild we have been insisting that, for too long, we have become accustomed - we have been accustomed - to interpret reality as if it were a judicial file or a "bad-police novel."
Within the framework of their electoral campaign and with no other need than their strategy for it - which includes giving signals to the owners of the power they manage, particularly interested in Patagonia - the national government, after agreeing with the government the irregular detention of Facundo Jones Huala, ordered the national guard of our country (the gendarmerie) to repress a group of demonstrators against it, in a disproportionate - but not casual or innocent - deployment of resources, personnel and violence in relation to the small group of demonstrators.
The consequences of this type of political decision are always counted on wounded, fractured, beaten and imprisoned under legal figures created especially to control protests and political dissidents. Many times, also in the dead. And now, as contribution of the macrism to the democracy, also in "disappearances".
Responsibilities are always political. Any pretense of directing the criminal attribution to their political leaders runs counter to the elementary fact that, in addition to appointing judges, these are usually the authors of criminal laws and, of course, do not have the custom - so widespread, on the other hand , among the popular leadership - of "spitting up" or "pissing against the wind," as one prefers. If demonstrations of this are necessary, there is the impunity of De la Rua and Sobisch, among many.
But, we insist, the language with which it is tried to settle these questions is the legal one and, more punctually, the coroner. Thus, the social sectors concerned celebrate or lament the progress and setbacks that - from each point of view - records the development of investigations or judicial processes.
This is obviously a lie, a fallacy - if one prefers - or plain and plain appeal to collective stupidity.
Firstly, the images captured at the moment show that Santiago Maldonado was put on the Gendarmerie van in one or two - we are talking about the minimum - plastic bags.
Surely it is not necessary for the Union to intervene in these public "debates" to clarify the obvious or anything else, but we consider it useful to insist on a point that seems to be off the agenda: the crime committed against Santiago Maldonado is a political crime; the perpetrators of this crime - like those of many others - can only be punished by effective political actions that overcome the barriers of impunity that the dominant socio-economic powers and their political managers build around them.
Justice for Santiago and for so many fighters consists in sweeping the face of the system against which they fought and enthroned society and the future of their dreams.
GREMIAL OF ATTORNEYS AND LAWYERS OF ARGENTINA

A little resume of this lady
In December of 2015 was designated security minister of the Nation by Mauricio Macri.
I believe the coverage of the media during the protest. Journalists should be placed in a "designated area" by the security forces, preventing coverage. The protocol, in addition to limiting journalistic coverage, allows the use of firearms and rubber bullets to disperse any protest or claim.
In 2015 the historically linked Peronist lawyer Juan Gabriel Labaké reported that Bullrich and Congresswoman Elisa Carrió are working for the Obama administration as part of a framework designed to destabilize leftist governments in the Latin American region that do not respond to US interests.
Questioned by the purchase of four Israeli boats for almost 50 million dollars, according to warned the Federation of the Naval Industry Argentina with the same amount could have been constructed 20 similar local boats. The Israeli company benefited is Codesur, belonging to the entrepreneur Mario Montoto, which is the nexus of the minister with that country. The purchase was made directly and without any previous bidding. Each boat was purchased at a cost equivalent to about 12.5 million dollars per team, a high figure compared to three boats that tendered the Naval Prefecture Argentina a year earlier, with a cost of 120 thousand dollars per unit.
Constitutional lawyer Eduardo Barcesat, Jorge Colvis of the Sampay Institute, and representatives of the Argentine League for the Rights of Man, Graciela Rosenblum and José Schulman filed a criminal complaint against Patricia Bullrich, Mauricio Macri, Marcos Peña, Germán Garavano and Pablo Noceti , and against the dome of the National Gendarmerie Argentina "for cover-up of forced disappearance of people". "We are facing a qualified crime against humanity, imprescriptible in criminal action."
