Special commission to investigate looting

Attorney-General Alejandra Gils Carbó yesterday created a commission of prosecutors to investigate crimes committed during the recent incidents in several provinces and to analyze whether there is a relationship between the looting and protests for pay hikes staged by police officers.

“In order to comply with the Law for the Defence of Democracy, Gils Carbó created a commission of prosecutors to investigate crimes against the constitutional order,” her department said in a news release.

The decision by the attorney-general is “a response to those collective attacks against (private) property which took place in several districts throughout the country, parallel to demands raised by provincial security forces.”

The commission will study “the possibility that the looting and police protests are linked in some way,” which would prove attacks against the constitutional order — a federal crime.

In theory, the commission will meet for 60 days. It will be composed by prosecutor-generals Federico Martín Carniel (from Resistencia, Chaco), José Ignacio Candioti Puyol (Paraná, Entre Ríos) and Adolfo Raúl Villate (Rosario, Santa Fe).

San Isidro Federal Prosecutor Rodolfo Fernando Domínguez will act as the commission’s general co-ordinator..
