New images released in recent hours suggest to researchers that the attack against the vice president of Argentina, Cristina FernándezIt was planned several days in advance. as reported by local media on Wednesday.
Brenda Uliarte, girlfriend of the main defendant for the assassination attempt, who remains under police arrest, had among her occupations the street sale of cotton candy, as she herself admitted in statements to the Crónica TV news channel less than a month ago.
According to images broadcast by local media, the first time a cart with cotton candy near Fernández’s home was on August 23, at the beginning of the demonstrations in support of the former president (2007-2015) after the Twelve-year prison sentence against him.
A similar cart was seen again four days later, in the context of the protests over the installation of a perimeter fence around the home of Cristina Fernández.
According to local media, the researchers work on the hypothesis that Uliarte was doing “intelligence” the days before the attack, to provide information to his partner, Fernando Sabag Montiel, the 35-year-old Brazilian man who tried to shoot the vice president last September 1.
This hypothesis would be supported by other images from the same day of the attack, which corroborate the presence of both at the scene of the events, something that Uliarte initially denied.
The couple was transferred this Tuesday to the federal courts of Comodoro Py (province of Buenos Aires) to give an investigative statement before Judge María Eugenia Capuchetti and prosecutor Carlos Rívolo, in the midst of an investigation that is taking place with great secrecy after the imposition of summary secrecy.
Last Thursday night, Montiel tried to shoot Cristina Fernández in the face, but the shot did not come out and was reduced by the militants gathered there.
