CFK renews criticism of justices, calls for 'agile' court system
Fernández de Kirchner urged the members of the Council of Magistrates – a key judicial body that appoints and removes judges -, to “make their best” so that judicial officials don’t’ remain in office ‘in eternum’ and called for an “agile” judicial system.
In that sense, CFK defended the Kirchnerism-sponsored bill that the president personally submitted to congress last year and that aimed at the “justice democratization” but that was stopped by a Supreme Court ruling.
“I still think it was an excellent project, a very good project to control justice. It can’t be that we are all controlled and that there is a sector that nobody controls”, the 61-year-old leader said and affirmed that “a little bit of popular control is not that bad.”
Still, the 61-year-old leader praised another ruling by Argentina's top tribunal that paved the way for the broadcast legislation, which had remained halted due to several injuctions filed by the media group Clarín since it was approved by congress in 2009, to be fully enforced.
