Federal justice is investigating whether the deputy of Together for Change, Gerardo Milman, knew that on the night of September 1, Vice President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner would be the victim of an assassination attempt. This arises from the testimony of an adviser to the Front of All, who claimed to have heard the legislator make reference to the attack before it occurred.

The witness, whose identity will remain confidential, assured the court that the episode occurred on August 30 at the Casablanca restaurant, located a few meters from Congress. The witness claimed that Milman told two women: “When they kill her, I’m going to be on my way to the coast”, something that came back to his mind two days later when he found out about the assassination attempt.

Based on that testimony, federal judge María Eugenia Capuchetti and prosecutor Carlos Rivolo advanced with a series of measures aimed at reconstructing the scene recounted by the witness until they identified and heard the story of the two people who shared a table with Milman.

Sources of the investigation assured this agency that The three people named by the witness actually held a meeting at the Casablanca restaurant on August 30 between 3:23 p.m. and 4:28 p.m., according to the security cameras in the area.

The people who met that afternoon with Milman were the members of his team Carolina Gómez Mónaco and Ivana Bohdziewicz, who this Wednesday testified as witnesses before Judge Capuchetti and answered questions from prosecutor Rivolo and the Vice President’s complaint.

Gómez Mónaco said that he has worked with Milman since he worked in the Ministry of Security during the presidential administration of Mauricio Macri and although he was initially unaware of the meeting, he remembered it after the images from the security cameras in the area were shown to him.

Both Gómez Mónaco and Bohdziewicz denied that Milman had made any reference to an attack that was going to happen, although the latter did confirm that they spoke of a trip that the deputy would make the next day to the seaside resort of Pinamar.

After the testimonials, the lawyers for the lawsuit, Marcos Aldazábal and José Manuel Ubeira, demanded that the witnesses’ cell phones be seized, something that Judge Capuchetti rejected, according to sources in the case told Télam.

The complaint, in any case, keeps a letter that it analyzes presenting in the next few hours to reinforce the track: it is a WhatsApp message that the witness himself sent to the ruling deputy Marcos Cleri minutes after the attack.

“Marcos, yesterday when I left your office I went with my brother-in-law to eat in Casablanca. Next to me was (Gerardo) Milman with two girls and he graciously said when they kill her I’m on my way to the coast and they laughed their heads off,” Said the message that was certified before a notary public, according to sources in the case told Télam.

The message was sent at 10:36 p.m. on September 1, after which he sent three others that said: “There are the cameras that do not let me lie” (about the coincidence in time and space), “hdmp (sic) I heard it” and “trust me I’m shaking”.
