On the government side, they defended the initiative and questioned the Mauricio Macri government on issues related to guilt, the cause of alleged illegal espionage and “legal prosecution” of former Kirchner officials.
In this regard, Parrilli emphasized: “We all want justice that guarantees us all the presumption of innocence and guarantee of the right process. I can assure you that for the last four years these principles were absolutely violated. “
The former Kirchner official questioned that the current opposition claims that it is not “in good time” does the judicial reform now: “Was the reform proposed 2017-2018 in time? when Argentina went into debt to side numbers and ruined jobs? To say that it is an excuse rather than a real reason for the state. “
He concluded: “This proposal made by the President, although it will not resolve all issues of justice without a doubt it is a way, a beginning, to begin to solve it with sincerity and reality.
