The Presidents Of The Federal Chambers, Waiting For The Judicial Reform Announced

Despite some speculation, the 25 presidents of the Federal Chambers of the whole country that met in Resistencia, Chaco, did not consider going out to respond to Alberto Fernández's criticisms of Justice on the day of his assumption, nor leaving any internal statement in that sense. The President had assured the Legislature that, upon his arrival at the Government, “the contamination of intelligence services” and “judicial operators.” He also questioned “a justice that decides and pursues according to the political winds of power on duty "and uses his power to" settle political discussions "and" prosecute dissent to eliminate the president on duty. "

Despite the strong content of Fernandez's words, the various sources consulted by Infobae said that "everything happened in a climate of peace and love. There was hardly any informal comment at the beginning, but then it was diluted and the subject was not discussed."

“Fernandez's words refer to the 12 federal judges of Comodoro Py. The reality of the interior of the country is very different. And there was not even the president of the Federal Chamber of the Capital, (Martín) Irurzun, ”said one of those present in Resistencia.


“These meetings have been held several times a year for 15 years and they never attract attention because we deal with issues of the Superintendency of Justice, all the judges have many years, and there is none that has entered through the window. We don't feel alluded to, ”said another cameraman.

Regarding Irurzun's absence – re-elected yesterday in his position at the head of the Federal Criminal and Correctional Appeals Chamber of Justice – Infobae learned that he stayed in Buenos Aires because of the workload, since today he had a oral hearing in Room II, of which he is currently the only member. "He warned yesterday (the president of the Court of Boards, the chambermaid of Comodoro Rivadavia Javier) Leal de Ibarra that he would not be able to be and that he adhered to what they resolved", since he shared the issues for administrative issues to be resolved in the operation of justice, said a source of the Buenos Aires Chamber.

Are you worried about the judicial reform announced by Alberto Fernández? Infobae asked. “He still didn't show up. When we know the content of the project, we are going to see if we have to worry or not, ”answered the consulted cameraman.

According to the circulating versions, the reform discussed by the Secretary of Strategic Affairs, Gustavo Béliz, and the Minister of Justice, Marcela Losardo, would go through expanding the federal jurisdiction of the courts and chambers in the economic and criminal criminal matters, and a merger of the federal Justice with the national Justice, which would imply “liquefying the power” of the 12 federal judges of Comodoro Py and the Buenos Aires Federal Chamber, by expanding their number.

The different sources consulted agreed that during the more than four hours that the meeting of the cameramen lasted – with a lunch break in the Mirasoles Hall-, there was talk of “the problems, needs and concerns of federal justice throughout the country". The meeting began at 11 am in the Agreement Room of the Federal Chamber of Resistance Appeals, a few blocks from the Plaza 25 de Mayo, the main one of the Resistance center.

Infobae agreed to the agenda of the meeting, which everyone clarified, was convened several months ago. It included from “urging compliance with Agreed 2/18 of the Court that provides that the proceeds from the sale of confiscated goods must be deposited in bank accounts in the name of the respective court”, until the request for official vehicles, through the inconvenience in the operation of the lex 100 system – the internal computer program of the national and federal courts and tribunals -, the delays in the renewal of contracts and the spaces of the Judiciary occupied by the Public Ministries. "Special emphasis was placed on the implementation of the accusatory system," said one of those present.

To reaffirm that “a response to the criticism of the President to Justice was not even evaluated, they contradicted the 2013 background, when the presidents of the Chambers expressed their concern regarding the“ democratization of Justice ”project promoted by the then President Cristina Kirchner, in a note that was elevated to the Supreme Court.The Supreme Court, at that time chaired by Ricardo Lorenzetti, finally ended up declaring it unconstitutional when the judicial cause for that issue reached the offices of the supreme.

The sources consulted agreed that, at the beginning, "it drew attention unfavorably" that the president of the Supreme Court, Carlos Rosenkrantz, was not at the meeting of the Boards, as is customary in these meetings. The magistrate warned two days ago that he would not be able to be during the beginning of the day and that he would send an emissary. Who was today was his secretary, Agustín Casares, who was the one who received the conclusions of what was spoken among the presidents of the federal Chambers

But the discomfort did dissipate because Rosenkrantz finally arrived around six in the afternoon, shortly before the attendees left for the act of commemoration of the 70 years of the Federal Chamber of Resistance, the reason for the meeting He did, in this opportunity, in that city.

At 7 pm, after the heat of the afternoon, the maid and the president of the Court went to the House of Cultures of the Chaco capital, to listen to a concert by the Chaco Symphony Orchestra and the performance of the Toba Chelaalapi Choir. The night of the magistrates will culminate a cocktail in the traditional Fogón de los Arrieros.
