The minister felt “striking that ended with the theme of the frigate Libertad”, held illegally in Ghana for 77 days by the complaint of a vulture fund, and now “happens when the President (Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner) has just completed a tour very successful in Asia.”
At the same time, the official confirmed that directed the Navy chief, Admiral Daniel Martin, for which issues an internal summary “because it has to be accountability that did not meet minimum care” on the ship.
Speaking to Telam, Puricelli said they must first “determine the circumstances that led to the sinking of the ship.
