Néstor Kirchner calls for an 'independent judiciary'

UNASUR head Néstor Kirchner.

UNASUR Secretary-General Néstor Kirchner talked about President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner statements on Fibertel and assured she had tackled the issue "in a great and ironic way, for the Judiciary will now have to pay attention and stop giving benefits to the monopoly." He addressed the press within the framework of his agenda in New York City.

The UNASUR head made a strong reference to what the President tweeted yesterday: "Everyone knows, it's publicly known, that there took place a meeting between Mr. Magnetto and the Judiciary, and now it's high time the Judicial branch becomes an independent branch itself."

Kirchner said: "We made a huge effort for our Judiciary to be independent thanks to a transparent electioneering process. And I know I put an end to the ‘Menem-stage' Judiciary."

The former president held a meeting with United States Democrat Representative Eliot Engel, who is currently in charge of the US relations with Latin America. Santiago del Estero and Entre Ríos provinces governors, Gerardo Zamora and Sergio Urribarri, also participated in the meeting.

Before entering the gathering, the former president said that he was there "to talk about UNASUR's role within the framework of the role we have been displaying in the region."

Later on, Kirchner is scheduled to speak at the New School University in New York City, as a way of continuing his agenda in the US, where he landed to escort his wife, President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. He is expected to talk about the regional bloc he leads and to develop an explanation on the new challenges the region is facing.

Kirchner's speech is expected to highlight the importance of UNASUR as a key piece for regional conflict solving as well as placing strong emphasis on the aid the group of nations has been sending to countries such as Haiti.
