Opposition accuses Moyano of using strike for 'personal issues'
Members of the opposition harshly criticized the head of the CGT Labour Confederation Hugo Moyano for the truck drivers’ union strike and demanded that President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner must intervene in the issue to stop the measure.
The Radical Party (UCR) blasted Moyano for applying the measure and accused him of “using the strike right for personal issues.”
Vice-President Julio Cobos assured that the best way of proving its innocence “is by presenting the information for the investigation. He doesn’t prove his innocence by going on a strike that will detriment the citizens, our country’s Justice and Argentina in an international context.”
Meanwhile, presidential pre-candidate Ernesto Sanz urged the government to “intervene in the conflict. They’ve created a monster that now confronts them and pretends to take the Argentines as a hostage.”
Members of the Civic Coalition bloc celebrated the decision of the Swiss justice of requesting Argentina’s Justice the reports of cases involving Hugo Moyano and assured that the CGT leader “will end up persecuted by the Interpol” due to “money laundering.”
The party headed by Elisa Carrió also blasted the Kirchnerite government for the alleged “protection” it offers to Moyano.
