Do you understand?

They are making up a story and I acted alone


Regarding the attack, I have the evidence here: Brenda Uliarte has nothing to do with it”.

When asked about the reasons why he tried to assassinate Cristina Kirchner, he was blunt:

"Basically because of the situation in the country

. "

He then explained that

the weapon he used “was loaded”

and that he “pulled (sic) the trigger”, but

“the shot didn't go out”

Fernando Sabag Montiel with a weapon, an image that came to light after the attack on Cristina Kirchner.

In addition, he said that the day the attack occurred,

"I was nervous"

because of

"so much tumult and so many people"

"Imagine the nerves of being in a place, of pulling the slide (sic),

I pulled the bolt back

and when I pulled the trigger the shot didn't come out," he insisted.

How the contact with Fernando Sabag Montiel with C5N was generated



they explained how the telephone contact with Sabag Montiel took place.

the defendant sent a letter addressed to Diego Luciani

, one of the prosecutors who intervened in the trial by Vialidad against the vice president and who accused Cristina Kirchner who was sentenced to 6 years in prison and disqualified for life from hold public office, after being found responsible for the crime of fraudulent administration.

Luciani has no intervention in the case involving Sabag Montiel, although the detainee had a fixation on his figure on social networks.

The note at the end contained "a telephone number

belonging to the

Continuous Observation area of ​​the Ezeiza prison

", where the defendant is detained, they maintained in C5N.

The judicial situation of Fernando Sabag Montiel

Despite the wishes and pressures of Cristina Kirchner, last week the Buenos Aires Federal Chamber asked federal judge

María Eugenia Capuchetti to close the investigation of the case

investigating the attack on the vice president, and to bring the defendants

Fernando Sabag

to trial

Montiel, Brenda Uliarte and Nicolás Carrizo, a secondary participant in the accusation and known as the boss of the "Copitos", the band of cotton candy vendors in which the two main defendants moved.

The chambermaids Leopoldo Bruglia, Pablo Bertuzzi and Mariano Llorens responded to a request from Carrizo's lawyer, who had demanded the cessation of the detention of his client.

In the resolution to which


agreed , they then decided that the best response to this claim was to speed up the closure of the investigation and for the file to pass into the hands of an Oral Court.

In this section of the investigation there are only three defendants.

The accusations are firm

as well as the actions of Judge María Eugenia Capuchetti were supported.

Cristina Kirchner challenged the magistrate on two occasions

, accusing her of not advancing the investigation on a particular axis: the political motive.

The circuit raised by the complaint is that the Federal Revolution, with some link to a certain Macrista sector, was behind the attack of which he was a victim in September 2022. Capuchetti was decisive in maintaining that, for the moment, there is no link in this regard.

The attack against Cristina Kirchner

The events under investigation occurred on Thursday, September 1, 2022 after 9:00 p.m., outside Cristina Kirchner's apartment in the Recoleta neighborhood.

The sequence is already known: the young man of Brazilian origin approached a few centimeters from the vice president holding a pistol "fit to shoot" and triggered.

The shot never came


"It is allowed to conclude, to the degree required by this stage, that Fernando Sabag Montiel, taking advantage of

the state of defenselessness

generated by the crowd

, tried to kill the Vice President of the Nation

through the use of a firearm, in accordance with the criminal plan premeditated by both defendants", said the judge in her resolutions.

When detailing the reasons why the shot did not materialize, the magistrate indicated: "This event

did not materialize for reasons beyond their control

and from the immediate reaction of the people who were in the place, who managed to reduce the defendant instantly preventing him from continuing with his actions".
