Gov't sues parents of graffiti vandal

A vandalised train on the Sarmiento line.

The Federal Government filed a criminal lawsuit against the parents of a minor for vandalizing new Sarmiento railway formations with graffiti.

In a press conference at Government House, Transport and Interior Minister Florencio Randazzo said the minor’s parents will be sued for damages. “We will ask for severance,” he said.

Argentina’s Naval Prefecture arrested a youth carrying spray paint of several colours -allegedly used to paint the formations- and held him in Inchausti correctional institution before releasing them. A second minor managed to escape.

The man accused by the government is 17 and lives in Buenos Aires City. He was detained while fleeing the scene in a taxi carrying six aerosol cans.

The formations were part of the 72 new units being displayed in Puerto Madero by the government last Thursday.

Randazzo warned parents: “We will sue you for your children’s damages,” he said.

The lawsuit was submitted Federal Court No. 14, to be tried by judge Sebastián Casanello.
