Cristina defends Milani appointment, will not allow 'media lynching'

Cristina speaks at Tuesday''s conference held in the Casa Rosada
President Cristina Kirchner has defended the designation of César Milani as head of the Armed Forces, and complained that "those who previously voted for the Due Obedience and Final Stop laws put in doubt" her administration's "human rights record".

"I am not going to allow any type of media lynching from those who are only interested in hurting a government," the head of state maintained from the Casa Rosada.

A lot of military figures "had nothing to do with what happened in that tragic era" of the Videla dictatorship, she underlined.

"Please, let's not pick the wrong road. It is very interesting that those who are criticising us as bad people, vengeful and persecutors [of the Armed Forces] now appear to be defenders of human rights."

Kirchner also pointed out advances made following a law that limited the proportion of land in each region of Argentina that can be owned by non-nationals: "We can say that none of the 23 provinces exceeds the limits put on[foreign] ownership, which gives me great pride."
