Argentina, July 17, 2011
After meeting the first results of the case that determined that Herrera Noble brothers are not children of the disappeared, the opposition spoke to criticize Cristina Kirchner and the way the National Government acted against the case.
Since the proof in hand, the opposition accused the Government of “pursuing and harassing” the children of Ernestina Herrera de Noble, principal shareholder of Clarin Group. They demanded the government an apology and discussed the need to close the case.
The leader of the Civic Coalition, Elisa Carrio, demanded an apology from President Cristina Kirchner and Estela de Carlotto after they have compared their views with the techniques used during the last military dictatorship.
Ricardo Alfonsin UCR presidential candidate, accused the government of using outrageous abuse against the brothers, like getting underwear and personal items in a violent way.
Other leader who spoke was Eduardo Duhalde, who characterized the persecution done by the Government in the case as “perverse”.
In the same vein, the candidate for governor in Buenos Aires, Francisco de Narvaez said they did a “political use of human rights” and said “this administration has used the cause of the Grandmothers to try to perpetuate in power”.
In that sense Stolbizer coincided with his rival, and said there was a “perverse use” of the case by the Government and called for “respect the work of the Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo”.
Mauricio Macri didn’t speak of any political interpretation and sent greetings to the family, arguing that “it is a clear step to know the truth and so they can live in peace”.
The last speaker was Martin Redrado, former president of the Central Bank, who said that the Government wanted “to get an electoral return” betting that the test would give positive.
