An Argentinian deputy was suspended Thursday for having, during a parliamentary session by videoconference, kissed the breast of his wife at his side, the video of the scene having since been very successful on social networks.
On the giant screen installed in Parliament, during these sessions where only a part of the deputies are physically present and while one of them has spoken, a woman appears on the screen thumbnail next to Juan Emilio Ameri embracing him with his arm.
The deputy of the province of Salta then took out a breast from the black t-shirt that the young woman was wearing and began to kiss her.
The parliamentary session was first interrupted and then suspended by the President of Parliament, Sergio Massa.
"Throughout these months of teleworking we have lived through different situations where one deputy fell asleep or another hid, but today we have experienced a situation that goes beyond the rules of decorum of this house," a launched Sergio Massa.
Confused, Emilio Ameri tried to apologize, explaining that he thought he was not logged in at the time.
“Here, throughout the interior of the country, the connection is very bad.
My partner came out of the toilet, I asked her how her prostheses were and I kissed her, because ten days ago she was operated on for breast prostheses, ”defended the 47-year-old deputy who should know within five days the sanction imposed by Parliament.
The footage has been viewed several hundred thousand times across the country, often accompanied by scathing comments.
The deputy, member of the government coalition Frente de Todos of center-left president Alberto Fernandez, repeats his “regrets” and his “great shame”.
