According to Argentine police, the man has been identified as Fernando Sabac Montel, a 35-year-old Brazilian. The accused has a criminal record for illegal possession of a weapon. According to Fernandez, the accused tried to shoot the Vice President using a .38 pistol but failed as the weapon misfired.

“Now the situation needs to be analyzed by our scientific (police) personnel to assess the person’s traces and ability and state of mind,” the minister said. According to Argentine police, Fernando Sabac Montel was transferred to the Federal Police headquarters in Villa Lugano. He is working as an app driver.

After the assassination attempt, Cristina spoke on the phone with Argentine President Alberto Fernandez. He met with top government officials at the Presidential Palace in Buenos Aires. Fernandez is scheduled to make a televised speech this evening.

Christina Kirchner is facing an arrest warrant

On 22nd August, the Argentina’s public ministry, in the person of lawyer Diego Luciani, requested Kirchner’s arrest. When he ruled the country between 2007 and 2015, he worsened the administration of illegal nexus and bid rigging. The prosecutor asked for a prison sentence of 12 years, permanent disqualification from public office and the confiscation of personal assets worth 5.3 billion Argentine pesos – about BRL 200 million.

Christina Kirchner characterized the complaint as “political harassment.”. In a statement, he said allegations of corruption in public service privileges were a ploy to remove him from public life. “Judgment starts with this construction, this fiction of broken and non-existent ways, high pricing. They are not accusations, but a script, and besides being false, very bad”, said Cristina. “Nothing, nothing they said has been proven,” he stressed.

Cristina Kirchner’s home has become a meeting point for protesters staging a rebellion against the impeachment charges against Argentina’s former president.
