City says local police can't use tasers because Nation appealed ruling apologizing in pandemic


It was revealed by Felipe Miguel, head of the Buenos Aires Cabinet and branded the arguments of the national presentation of 'paleón'. Justice had agreed with an amparo filed in 2022. But now the Ministry of Justice has blocked the resolution.

"More than 2 years ago, we started the entire bidding and awarding process for the purchase of the tasers, even for the use and import permits. And finally it got stuck with all the

Miguel gave details of the course.

30 days to define

the import situation".

But what seemed like a way of resolution to unlock the entry of the guns, had another unforeseen delay: the

Nation's appeal

the pandemic that left him without face-to-face resources

to resolve this situation," Miguel complained, in dialogue with Radio Rivadavia.
