Milagro Sala has been in prison for seven years and awaits the “pardon” of Alberto Fernández

The leader of the Túpac Amaru, Milagro Sala, she served seven years in prison and commemorated them by begging President Alberto Fernández to “stop being afraid” and “use the pen” to pardon her. In addition, she assured that the president “sins to believe in others”, in reference to the Supreme Court of Justice.

“Cristina (Kirchner) has asked him to use the pen. Alberto has to decide that; the decision goes through him more than anything. That they have enough courage to do it and stop being afraid of the opposition national media, because out there they are afraid of a newspaper cover or a TN grid. And that once and for all stop being afraid”, assured the Jujuy woman in an interview with the newspaper Page 12.

The social leader is under house arrest in Jujuy for leading a camp and his procedural situation has worsened since then with the accumulation of cases and convictionsand how many followers and faithful organizations express their support and solidarity against the “persecutory action” they suffer, probably, from the Provincial government headed by the radical Gerardo Morales.

Sala was arrested after, on January 16, 2016, she took over the central square of Jujuy along with more than 20 social organizations, to demand answers from the Jujuy governor about the operation of the work cooperatives.

The transfer of Sala to house arrest was ordered by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights due to his delicate state of health.

the leader was arrested for “instigation to commit illegal acts and riots”, fact that was investigated and brought to trial in 2019.

For Sala, imprisonment meant a series of legal cases that were initiated at the local level: some reached an oral trial, where she was convicted; others are pending resolution and, in some, she was dismissed.

In addition to the cause for the camp, Chamber is awaiting an oral trial because it is known as the “Megacause”In which former officials are also involved, including former Governor Eduardo Fellner and several former community leaders for fraud in housing construction.

In addition, Jujuy Justice ordered the elevation to trial of the case for the incidents of March 8, 2021 in the Campo Verde neighborhood of San Salvadorand in which Sala is accused of being the instigator.

At first he was in the Alto Comedero Women’s prison (four days after the arrest for the camp), and since 2017 he has been serving his sentence under house arrest after the Inter-American Court of Human Rights issued a sentence in this sense and that it was ordered by the Supreme Court of Justice.

Sala’s concern in recent years, as she herself stated, has to do with the fact that her judicial situation “has worsened” because she has “more cases than she had in 2019.”

Sala’s concern in recent years, as she herself stated, has to do with the fact that her judicial situation “has worsened” because she has “more cases than she had in 2019”, and also because there are others for which they are going to trial she and other people for crimes of fraud or money laundering.

The Tupac Amaru leader considers the judiciary and Governor Morales her enemies, saying that keeping her imprisoned “serves her” at the time of the electoral campaign. On more than one occasion, she said that if she does not receive a sentence in a trial, “Morales does whatever” so that later they say a “yes or yes.”

Although Sala, for the moment, he will not return to a common jailAs Morales himself had requested after the Court’s decision for the sentence against the social leader in the “Pibes Villeros” case, the organization demands that the conditions of his house arrest be safeguarded, minimally, and put aside the purpose of the provincial representative.

Gerardo Morales: “Kirchnerism has to understand that it has completed a cycle”

In this regard, the Center for Legal and Social Studies (CELS) stated that this resolution “does not modify the obligation of the State to protect their physical and mental health,” and omits that any regression “It means a deepening of the harassment against her” at the request of the prosecutors for her to serve a sentence in common jail.

Last December, militants from the Kirchner organization camped for three days in Plaza de Mayo to demand Sala’s pardon after the Court upheld a sentence of 13 years in prison for the cause known as “Pibes villeros”, in the that she was accused of illicit association and fraud of the State. Tomorrow will be seven years since her arrest. Since August 2017, she has been in house arrest.

For Sala, imprisonment meant a series of legal cases that were initiated at the local level: some reached an oral trial, where she was convicted; others are pending resolution and, in some, she was dismissed.

Regarding the management of the Frente de Todos, Sala is disappointed and recounted: “I am going to make constructive criticism. When Alberto and Cristina took office, I believed that history was going to change in Argentina and that those who had destroyed the country were going to jail and those of us who helped rebuild the Homeland were going to be free. And that the persecution they encountered was going to end, but unfortunately we have not had that answer.”

Along the same lines, he again charged against the head of state and even got into the national agenda by mentioning co-participation: “I do not want to say that Alberto is innocent, but in some things he sins of believing in others. He believed that the Court was going to do justice and the Court ended up showing him that he governs with a sector that is the right when he took out the co-participation ruling to say that he has to pay Larreta. First me, then him, Cristina (…)”.

The Supreme Court has been in the eye of the pro-government storm since the favorable ruling for the city of Buenos Aires for the return of 2.95% of the federal co-participation, a reason that led to the presentation of a project for impeachment by Alberto Fernández, backed by a handful of allied governors.
