For this, on Monday there will be a hearing through the virtual platform Zoom in which the cameramen Leopoldo Bruglia, Mariano Llorens and Pablo Bertuzzi will listen to the arguments of the plaintiff lawyer Valeria Carreras.

The lawyer requests the removal of Judge Ercolini, who was in charge of the investigation last February, when it was sent from the federal Justice of Dolores to Comodoro Py 2002.

The start of the review of Macri’s processing was scheduled for Tuesday the 12th, but was postponed until April 26.

Macri was prosecuted on December 1 last by decision of the interim federal judge of Dolores, Marín Bavawho carried out the investigation until last February, when he referred it to Comodoro Py.

Since then, the case is in charge of Judge Ercolini while the appeal of Macri’s prosecution was studied by Llorens, Bruglia and Bertuzzi, unsuccessfully challenged by the family complaint.

When prosecuting him, Bava maintained that Macri “from his position as President of the Nation, at least in the period between December 2017 and the end of 2018, ordered and made possible the systematic carrying out of expressly prohibited intelligence tasks. by Law 25,520 and its amendments”.

These would have consisted of “obtaining information, producing intelligence, and storing data on people, because of their political opinion or their membership in party, social, trade union, community, and human rights organizations.”

The former president is also embargoed for 100 million pesos and is prohibited from leaving the country, although Judge Ercolini has already authorized him to make different trips abroad.

On December 6, Lanusse appealed the prosecution before the Federal Chamber of Mar del Plata, but the Court of Appeals referred everything to Comodoro Py after the case was transferred to the federal jurisdiction of the city of Buenos Aires.

Appealing the prosecution to the former president, the lawyer argued that Bava acted with “prejudgment.”
