President Alberto Fernández recalled this Sunday the attack on the AMIA, on the 27th anniversary of the terrorist attack, and called the “unity “to fight impunity.
“27 years after the AMIA attack, the relatives of the 85 victims remain firm in their demand for truth and justice,” the president’s message began.
“In memory of each one of them and in honor of those who lost their loved ones, we must unite against impunity,” added Fernández, who uploaded the photo of the mural that is located at the Pasteur headquarters at 600 with the names of the fatalities.
His message comes days after the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association itself asked for greater State intervention and questioned the “ineffectiveness and indifference” of the government.
“Federal Court No. 6, in charge of the case, does not yet have a permanent judge appointed. This unresolved situation does nothing more than collaborate so that nothing progresses. We need the institutional mechanisms to be activated urgently, and that the responsible court does not continue to be ‘vacant’, “said the president of AMIA, Ariel Eichbaum, during a virtual act.
In his speech, the head of the entity affirmed that “the powers of the State, and not the victims, are the only ones responsible for the networks of ineffectiveness, corruption and cover-up that prevent us from reaching justice “.
The AMIA head had met last week with Alberto Fernández, who did not participate in the tribute ceremony.
“We talked about how the AMIA cause is still a pain for Argentine society and what we can do in order to apprehend those who are accused of being responsible,” Eichbaum told the media accredited in the Government House, including Clarion.
In this context, while the AMIA authorities held the official act on Friday to demand justice, Vice President Cristina Kirchner called a hearing to demand the annulment of the case known as the Memorandum with Iran.
The relatives did not participate in the hearing and assured that “they are not afraid of the truth.”
“Since Prosecutor Nisman made his complaint, we only wish that the Oral and Public Trial be carried out, an opportunity in which the defendants will be able to fully exercise their defenses,” they said in a statement.
Two and a half hours after the relatives and victims of the AMIA attack remembered the 27th anniversary with the slogan “Connected against impunity,” Cristina Kirchner made a virtual presentation in Comodoro Py and asked that the case brought to trial be annulled. where she is accused of aggravated cover-up of the attack on the Jewish mutual society.
The vice president made a political release, where she blamed Mauricio Macri for “co-opting the state to persecute me.” He also pointed out against Comodoro Py: “This case is an institutional, judicial and political nonsense.”
