Within the framework of the resumption of hearings that the Chamber of Deputies is carrying out promoting a impeachment against the Supreme Court, Carlotto’s Stele gave his testimony and spoke about rulings that officials of the highest body of the Judiciary handed down in relation to human rights. Criticism, he pointed against Carlos Rosenkrantz and said that as of 2015 there was a substantial change in justice.
The same day that the former Minister of Justice of Cambiemos, Germán Garavano, spoke of his relationship with Fabián “Pepín” Rodríguez Simónrecognized as a judicial operator of macrismo between 2015 and 2019, Carlotto appeared before the members of the Political Trial Commission and, through a letter, listed a series of rulings that he considered harmful to human rights organizations.
“Our journey through the courts began in the dictatorship and obviously continued in a democracy, up to the present day,” said the head of the Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo at the beginning of her speech.
Then he highlighted the annulment of the Full Stop and Due Obedience laws that occurred in 2005, through which repressors convicted of crimes during the dictatorship benefited from shorter sentences. “From then on, we saw how those responsible for the crimes of the dictatorship began to be tried throughout the country by their natural judges and with all the guarantees of due process,” he said. However, he stressed that “things began to change at the end of 2015”, the year in which the government of Mauricio Macri.
In his writing, which Carlotto asked to read so as not to answer questions taking into account his age, he pointed out as an example that on April 18, 2017, the Supreme Court “ruled on the “Alespeiti” ruling, by which it granted house arrest to the ex-military Felipe Jorge Alespeiti, who had already been sentenced to 22 years in prison, revoking the resolution of the Federal Chamber of Cassation”.
For the referent of human rights, it was the ceiling for what would happen weeks later with the Muiña ruling. “We all remember what that ruling meant, opening the door of freedom to the genocidal, to the few who were in common prisons as well as to those who enjoyed house arrest,” she recalled. Said ruling enabled the application of 2×1 to be considered in trials for crimes against humanity.
The mismanagement in the judicial social work, axis of the internal of the Court and next subject of the impeachment
According to Carlotto, from this decision, “the ministers Rosatti, Rosenkrantz and Highton (who spuriously erased his previous and distinguished votes with his elbow) they failed by favoring indiscriminately and in a general way those responsible for the most atrocious crimes that our history remembersknowing that the doctrine and applicable jurisprudence of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation itself indicated the opposite”.
In addition to questioning the delay in the processing of cases that have already been sentenced, among which stood out the one that tried Carlos Blaquier for the event known as “The night of the blackout” during the last dictatorship, Carlotto stated that “between February and May of 2017 the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation as a body, sought a regression in the luminous jurisprudence initiated in 2004”.
