Judge Argibay: “The government gets hold of lots of things that don’t belong to it”
Carmen Argibay, Judge of the Supreme Court, criticized on Wednesday that “the central government get hold of things that doesn’t belong to it”, and she said that Argentina has a very “strong tendency to centralization and Unitarism”.
“If we can’t overcome that, we’ll never be a seriously federal country,” said the judge over a speech at the Buenos Aires Legislature, where she also criticized the magistrates who refuse to follow legal procedures in order to avoid losing their valuables.
Argibay considers that there’s “no political will” to make justice have its full autonomy.
The magistrate called for a debate on the events that “prevent the execution of federalism every day”. She cited as examples the “warlords” and that “the central government get hold of lots of things that don’t belong to it”.
Argibay lectured on “Federalism, City and Justice” during the “XIX Scientific Conference of the Judiciary” that were held today in the Buenos Aires Legislature.
The judge also supported a fully autonomous Justice in the City of Buenos Aires.
