Carlos Stornelli again referred this Tuesday to the statements of President Alberto Fernández, who at the opening of sessions of Congress accused the prosecutor - without naming him - of being "prosecuted for crimes as severe as

illegal espionage

and continuing in office as if nothing of this will affect him. "

This time, Stornelli assured:

"When he ceases to be President one day we will have a man-to-man talk to reflect on the Republic

, the division of powers, sincerity and others. I am not going to speak ill of anyone, but

there are questions that are entered that are false ".

In dialogue with

A24

and

La Nación +

, the prosecutor said that they have known Alberto Fernández for "many years", that they saw each other "very frequently" and that he even visited him at Government House when Fernández was chief of the Cabinet of ministers.

He also said that they discussed the so-called

"Cause of the notebooks."

Asked whether that Alberto with whom he was talking resembles the current President, Stornelli replied: "

No. The speech is different.

We were two people who would eventually meet to talk about ideals, projects, the institutional. The things that now he says he never told me. "


He added: "We will talk about things that today are difficult to talk about.

I would like tomorrow to resume the cordial dialogue that we had."

Meanwhile, in Casa Rosada the repercussions of the opening of sessions and the questioning of the judicial system continued.

A sector of hard Kirchnerism insisted on Tuesday

to form a bicameral commission

to control this power.

In this context, the Minister of the Interior, Eduardo "Wado" de Pedro, supported the President in his criticisms and sent a message to judges and prosecutors for their "direct responsibility" with the femicides:

"

They are transformed or the time has come to leave ".

Likewise, the leader of La Cámpora mentioned to Stornelli: "One thing is the situation of the federal Justice, where the case of the prosecutor (Carlos) Stornelli is very obvious,

that he is being investigated for participating in a band that asked for money,

that I was investigating families and relatives. It seems to me that society knows very well the actions of the Judiciary and that is what our President speaks about. "

In this regard, Stornelli replied: "He

is talking about a cause that he does not know

and talks about issues for which I am not prosecuted."

On Monday, hours after Alberto's speech that put him at the center of the scene, the prosecutor said: "I am only going to refer to the fact that

the causes they made me are infamy

, it was shown that they are lies. However, there are people who are determined to insist on using those things to discredit one or more investigations, and I'm not talking about the President. "
