CFK: We are recovering Argentina's heritage

President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner led the inauguration of the new Justice and Human Rights Ministry, at the South Waterfront in Buenos Aires City, highlighting the recovery of national assets over the last 10 years.

“We are inaugurating something which is more than just a ministry. We are reopening the recovery of every Argentine's national heritage,” affirmed Fernández de Kirchner.

CFK also criticised judicial figures who used legal means to block government initiatives; wondering aloud where the same individuals were during the administration of President Carlos Menem.

"There were even privatisations carried out by decree without anyone doing absolutely anything," she fired, while lamenting "if only the country then had the judges and prosecutors which these days are so attentive to making complaints."

After heading a multiple video conference which included the launching of housing programs in General Arenales, Buenos Aires province, and Bariloche, Río Negro, the head of state proceeded with the opening of a previously abandoned, recovered state-owned building, where the new Ministry will operate from.

The buildingwill hold several public offices, including the new Argentine Service of Judicial Information (Infojus) and the Judicial Access department.

“The construction and valorisation of this building is the result of a joint effort between the Justice and Human Rights Ministry and the State Assets Administration Agency,” the president told.

She also pointed out that in the same site, the Federal Government contracted a 700 million dollar debt with the Paris Club, for “projects which have never been concluded,” during the last dictatorship in 1976-1983.

Fernández de Kirchner assured that the move would help the government save a sum of 40 million pesos in terms of rent, monthly paid during the past years.
