Sabbatella: Media Law ruling 'shameful'
The head of the audiovisual communications watchdog Afsca, Martín Sabbatella, assured that the recent ruling by a Federal Court extending the injunction over article 161 of the Media Law that benefits Grupo Clarín is “shameful” and warned that the Government will ask the Supreme Court to intervene “so they can review this decision that greatly damages democracy.”
Sabbatella also said that the ruling “proves that we were right to say that the judges who fly to Miami on Clarin’s expense end up becoming a part of their legal team.”
At the same time, he regretted that the Argentine courts “are not prepared to fight against corporations because a large part of it is colonized by those corporations.”
