Fernando Sabag Montiel’s partner, Brenda Uliarte, has denied this Tuesday her involvement in the assassination attempt on Argentina’s Vice President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner perpetrated last Thursday.
Uliarte has assured the Argentine justice system that she was “only accompanying” her boyfriend when he tried to shoot Fernández de Kirchner in front of her home on the night of September 2.
The young woman, 23 years old, has maintained that she “did not agree with what happened”, that she considered “aberrant” what happened, “beyond the political differences” with the vice-president. In this line, she denied manifesting “hatred” against Kirchner and has denied having participated in the attack, as ‘La Nación’ has learned.
During his statement, Uliarte was shown all the evidence collected so far by the judicial authorities, including the weapon wielded by his partner on the day he committed the attack against the former Argentine president.
Uliarte has concluded tonight his statement before the court in charge of the investigation for the murder attempt against the vice-president Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, where he denied his participation in the attack, judicial sources have informed the agency Télam.
Meanwhile, investigators examining the assassination attempt on the vice-president of Argentina suspect that the attacker planned the attack in advance, after finding images on his cell phone in which both he and his partner, also arrested, pose with the alleged weapon.
Sabag Montiel and his girlfriend, Brenda Uliarte, appear in these images with a Bersa pistol like the one used in the September 1 attack and which failed to fire just centimeters from Fernandez’s face, according to investigation sources quoted by Télam.
