Gov’t nominated Sbatella as UIF president amid opposition blasts

UIF President José Sbatella (TÉLAM)

The Ministry of Justice proposed today the renewal of José Sbatella’s presidency at the Financial Information Unit (UIF). Meanwhile, opposition leaders Ernesto Sanz (UCR) and Adrián Pérez (FR) anticipated they will object the kirchnerite’s official appointment in Congress.

Together with Sbatella, whose presidency finishes next month, the Government proposed Germán Saller as vice president of the UIF, the agency in charge of fighting financial crime.

As the law states, there is now a 15-day period during which political representatives at Congress can object the nomination and give their reasons.

The head of the Radical Civil Union (UCR), Ernest Sanz, anticipated that he will object the nomination and asked President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner to “remove Sbatella, as he has already demonstrated he is not suited for the job”.

In addition, Renewal Front’s lawmaker Adrián Pérez pointed out that “corruption and drug trafficking have increased during Sbatella’s presidency”, and also anticipated he will object the appointment.
