CFK on Twitter: ‘What’s happening with the Argentine Judiciary?’
President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner questioned today via Twitter some decisions of the Justice and wondered if "there is a single judge in Argentina willing to ensure equality before the law", while criticizing the decision of Córdoba’s Governor José Manuel de la Sota of closing multiple Open Digital Television antennas in the Mediterranean province.
In her personal account, the Head of State referred to the justice behaviour after De la Sota decided to close several ODT antennas in different parts of the province after saying they were a menace for the environment.
"I’m at the Presidential Residence reading newspapers. I see these pictures on Página 12 newspaper of transmit antennas in Cordoba, and there is one that belongs to Cablevision and Radio Mitre set just 70 meters away from those ODT antennas closed by the provincial government after submitting a court Injunction."
In this context, the President asked: "Is not there a judge in Argentina to ensure the equality of all citizens before the law?”
Likewise, Fernández remarked that the closure of the antennas represents a violation of the freedom of press, plus questioned if “Isn’t there any protection for the rights of users and consumers to choose between pay TV, free TV or whatever they want?"
To end, Cristina wrote: "What's happening with the justice in our country?"
