Bonafini begins ‘review’ of Supreme Court justices
The head of the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo Foundation, Hebe de Bonafini, yesterday fulfilled her threat to publicly read out the curriculum vitae of Supreme Court justices at the group’s weekly meeting.
Carmen Argibay was the first justice covered in the campaign, in which Bonafini stated her intent to allow the “people” to evaluate the justices. “The Mothers will not present their own evaluations: we are just going to read, while later, you, the people, will evaluate if the justice is good, or otherwise,” said the social activist.
In this context, Bonafini said “there are good justices, bad justices, OK justices. Today we are going to start by reading the story of Mrs Argibay.”
According to the social leader, Argibay “voted against the unconstitutionality of the presidential pardon.”
Bonafini also recognized Argibay as “one of the few magistrates who participated in the crimes against humanity trials,” and that “on December 30, 2003, (Argibay) became the first woman to be nominated by a democratic government to the Supreme Court.”
Bonafini had announced that each justice would have their career detailed publicly as part of her allegations that members of the court were complicit with “minority groups” seeking to destabilize the government through rejecting the Broadcasting Law.
