Ferderal appeals court ruling:

Tuesday, September 8, 2009

De la Rúa's acquittal overruled

Ex-President Fernando de la Rúa will be probed for his alleged responsibility during the demonstrations prior to his resignation on December 20, 2001.

The Buenos Aires Appeals Court today overruled the acquittal of the ex-president, charged with having ordered the Federal Police to put down a demonstration. A prosecutor holds him responsible for the deaths of five people and more than 100 cases of injuries.

"It is not possible to close the investigation until all the courses of action have been exhausted," said a statement released by the court, which ordered a magistrate to continue with the investigation into the actions of the former Radical president, who was forced to leave office as protesters plundered supermarkets in Buenos Aires province and took to the strets of the capital.

On April 4 2008, Federal Judge Claudio Bonadío had acquitted De La Rúa saying the investigation "failed to prove if De La Rúa had intervened in the chain of command that ordered the repression." The ruling added that "there was no element to suppose any criminal behavior from the ex-president."
