Argentina’s Federal Police have arrested on Sunday night the partner of Fernando Sabag Montiel, the man who tried to kill Vice President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner.
Agents of the Anti-Terrorist Investigation Unit Department have arrested Brenda Elizabeth Uliarte, 23, by order of the judge in charge of the case, Maria Eugenia Capuchetti, after the investigation determined that she was together with Sabag Montiel at the scene of the incident.
Authorities have detained the investigated woman at the Palermo Ferrocarril San Martín station in Buenos Aires, Télam news agency has learned.
Capuchetti has decreed on Sunday afternoon the secrecy of summary, after taking statements from a friend of the attacker and the police technicians who tried to unlock the cell phone of the investigated.
The “acquaintance” of the accused, Mario Bongarelli, has assured under oath to believe him “capable of committing the deed”, after being asked about the authorship of the crime.
Judicial sources reported on Saturday that Sabag Montiel’s phone would have been blocked in attempts by the Police to extract information. According to local media, the message “phone factory reset” would have appeared on the screen of the cell phone, so that Justice could lose a key piece of evidence.
Subsequently, the judge and the prosecutor, Carlos Rívolo, have analyzed the security cameras in the area, reason for which they have decreed the secrecy of summary. The hypothesis of Justice is that Sabag Montiel did not act alone.
