The national government rejected the claim of the vice president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchnerso that they are sent gendarmes to the suburban from Buenos Aires and affirmed that “the Federal Forces have to be requested by the governments of each one of the provinces”.
“People asked for it because they had more confidence. I don’t know why we can’t do the same thing again: deploy thousands of gendarmes in the suburban Instead of having them in the middle of Patagonia, nobody knows what to do,” the head of the Senate had raised last week during the act she held at the Estadio Único de La Plata on the occasion of Militancy Day.
In this regard, the presidential spokesperson, Gabriela Cerrutti, pointed out that “the Federal Forces have to be requested by the governments of each one of the provinces.” And he insisted: “It is not a decision of the national government, but rather they have to do with the strategy of each of the provincial governments.”
In this sense, the national official explained that the meeting held by the president Alberto Fernandez with the Minister of Security, Hannibal Fernandezit was to catch up on the issues of the police portfolio after the international tour that had taken him to France, Indonesia and Spain.
And he continued: “If there is a request from the Province of Buenos Aires, the Minister (of Security) Hannibal Fernandez will review it.”
