Marita Verón case: Tucumán Security Minister resigns

Tucumán’s Security Minister Mario López Herrera tendered his resignation amidst the scandal surrounding the ruling in the Maritá Verón case, which acquitted thirteen people suspected of abducting her in 2002.

After the ruling, López Herrera had been strongly criticized by Verón’s mother, Susana Trimarco, who assured that “safety in this province is a shame.”

She also said called him “useless.”

Minutes after 1 PM, and after meeting with his closest aids in the Government House, Tucumán governor José Alperovich announced that López Herrera would be replaced by current Coordination Minister Jorge Gassembauer.

Minister López Herrera is considered to be the first victim of the political fallout that followed the controversial ruling that acquitted thirteen people on Tuesday.

Earlier today, Governor Alperovich had stated that he thought the ruling was “shameful” since “there was enough evidence” to at least find some of the accused guilty.

“Safety in this province is a shame,” Trimarco had said after the ruling. “López Herrera is useless. The Zero Brothel law is a shame, all whorehouses remain open,” she had stated.
