A woman was stabbed to death in the center of the city of Aristóbulo del Valle, in Misiones, by his ex-partner, who left the prison three weeks ago after serving a sentence for attempted femicide and gender violence.

Cecilia Krojoski was 34 years old and was surprised by her ex-husband, Miguel Feldick, 36 years old in the neighborhood of the civic center. The attack was cruel and the woman died because of the deep wounds that the femicide gave her.

Researchers believe that Miguel has been released from prison with the idea of ​​killing his former partner. And that in all those days he was only looking for the most suitable moment.

Cecilia had indicted Feldick for one attempted murder and situations of marital violence. Justice then ordered the arrest and finally sentenced him to three years in prison.

Miguel served his sentence in the Criminal Unit of Oberá and on 5 November he was released. Nobody foresaw that he could try again against the life of his ex.

The police found the knife with which the crime was committed in an area with weeds.

The prisoners of the party who governed Neuquén more than half a century ago were opened. In total, about 120 thousand people participated. A third part of the electoral pattern of the Patagonia province consists of 420,735.

Gutiérrez concretises a first step towards looking for his re-election in 2019. In this scenario Horacio "Pechi" Quiroga, the current intendant of Neuquén, will most likely have a meeting with the PRO in the south.

"We tell independent parties that we have an independent project of national governments," said Gutiérrez during the festivities. Although he was during his mandate on various occasions Gutiérrez has shown himself as an ally of Mauricio Macri's government.

In Neuquén it is clear that the man behind Gutiérrez's career is the former governor Jorge Sapag, who has a close friendship with him. The current governor came to power sponsored by the former provincial governor, considered one of the managers of the operation of Vaca Muerta. Gutiérrez – public accountant – was Minister of Economy and Public Works of Sapag.

Another member of the party was the senator and the general secretary of the oil tankers of the Neuquen basin, Guillermo Pereyra. "El Caballo" also pointed to the unity of the MPN to ensure that he would call Figueroa to participate in the 2019 campaign.

In the trainee for the participation in the capital Neuquén, the candidate from the Blue list, Mariano Gaido, triumphed over Zulma Reina, representative of the Violeta list. The difference was 24,064 votes against 15.994. Gaido is the current Minister of Labor, Social Development and Security of the province.

Mar del Plata: today they release the verdict for the femicide of Lucía Pérez https://navva.org/argentina/nation/mar-del-plata-today-they-release-the-verdict-for-the-femicide-of-lucia-perez/ Mon, 26 Nov 2018 11:46:49 +0000 https://navva.org/argentina/argentina/mar-del-plata-today-they-release-the-verdict-for-the-femicide-of-lucia-perez/

A court in Mar del Plata today announced the verdict in the oral trial against three people accused of the femicide of Lucía Pérez, murdered in that spa in 2016 after they were drugged, reported judicial sources.

The judges Facundo Gómez Urso, Aldo Carnevale and Pablo Viñas called the last audience at 2.30 pm, when the situation of Matías Farías (25), Pablo Offidani (43) and Alejandro Maciel (61) will be determined.

During the accusations, the prosecutor, Daniel Vicente, asked for life imprisonment for Farias, since he was the author of "sexual abuse with aggravated carnal access in an ideal match with femicide, with the exacerbation of the supply of narcotics to a minor" .

To this extent it asked 18 years in prison for Offidani when it considered "participant necessary" of the same crime and withdrew the accusation by "hidden concealment" that weighed against Maciel, accused as someone who washes the minor's body and who has asked for freedom .

For his part, Lucia's family judge, Gustavo Marceillac, ordered the first two suspects to be sentenced to life imprisonment and Maciel to four and a half years in prison.

According to the plaintiff's hypothesis, the teenager met Farias and Offidani one day before her death, on October 7, 2016, when they approached her through a friend of the local high school 3 to sell her a cigarette. marijuana.

In the hours of the next morning they both went to look for Lucia at their house and they went to the house of the first, in Racedo to the 4500, of the Alfar district, where it would have been drugged and sexually abused.

Then the suspects took Lucia in a van to the Serena Beach Health Unit, where the minor arrived without vital functions and the doctors tried to revive her for 40 minutes.

For the prosecutor it was shown that "Farías had a plan", as he trusted the medicine during the first meeting and "charged him, sold him more drugs and approached it in a carnal way".

According to the prosecutor, he did this: "know the expected role of this type of girls, adolescents, users of toxic substances abusively and in turn without their own income" and stressed that "in a patriarchal society serves to meet their sexual need to meet as a man. "

About the lack of evidence about the rape he said that "in such cases, the androcentric perspective makes us believe that if there are no defensive traces on the victim or extremely cruel injuries there is no sexual abuse and it makes us lose sight of the fact that problem is in the asymmetry of power, between victim and perpetrator. "

"There is no doubt that Lucía Pérez was sexually abused in a context of gender violence as a result of reification of women and that narcotics were used to facilitate her, which in particular strengthened the situation of vulnerability," the prosecutor emphasized.

For its part, the official defender of the three accused, Laura Solari, rejected the crime "sexual abuse followed by death" which weighs on Farias and Offidani, since the relations between the first of them and Lucia "have been agreed".

"And if there is no sexual abuse, logically, it can not be attributed the death result provided by that figure," Solari said.

Then the defender said that "in this case the concept of gender violence does not apply because there is no femicide or there is a re-examination by those accused of Lucia."

"The most likely cause of death was the ingestion of narcotics but not sexual abuse, as the Public Prosecutor and the injured party are planning to impose this," he said.

The Lucia Perez case had a strong impact two years ago, nationally and internationally, after the prosecutor responsible for the case, María Isabel Sánchez, reported at the start of the investigation that the victim had been drugged, raped and "impaled", the last one finally thrown away.

Even this femicide resulted in the first international strike of women that took place in Argentina in 2016 with the impulse of the feminist movement Ni Una Menos.

Large margin for Gutiérrez in an internal without surprises https://navva.org/argentina/nation/large-margin-for-gutierrez-in-an-internal-without-surprises/ Mon, 26 Nov 2018 08:01:00 +0000 https://navva.org/argentina/argentina/large-margin-for-gutierrez-in-an-internal-without-surprises/

Starting today, a new phase will begin in the provincial government that will be signed by the re-election of Governor Omar Gutiérrez. "The big challenge will be to win in 2019," demanded the governor last night, shortly after gaining the victory in MPN's internal elections.

"The political project will merge into one, the colors will end in the MPN", he replied in the midst of the euphoria of the triumph when "Río Negro" asked him what he would say to his current governor, Rolando Figueroa, who confronted him in the internal of yesterday.

From the data that the MPN published at the end of this edition, it appears that about 120,000 people voted, of which 62% did for the Azul de Gutiérrez list and 38% for the Violeta de Figueroa, about 74,400 against 45,600. "It's 30% of the province's total census and it's the same percentage we applied in 2014," Gutiérrez said. The official data indicated that, with 60% of the counted tables, the Blue was imposed with 57%.

Figueroa preferred silence. His spokespeople repeated that there was fraud. Gutierrez reminded him that the election was controlled by 23 veterans of the judiciary and saved the reasonableness of the election act.

He insisted twice that "there are no winners or losers in the MPN".

Gutiérrez organized a party on the street for the seat of the MPN governmental council in Olascoaga 1.002. Shortly after the 22nd, ex-governor Jorge Sapag arrived and was delighted with his candidate.

When he showed himself before the crowd waiting for him, Gutiérrez took the microphone and began to scold the song sung by the militants. "Where they are, where are the ones who are going to win us," they said. The governor told them not to move on and they changed to a more neutral one. A clear message of unity that was also taken by Guillermo Pereyra who told this newspaper that he would call Figueroa before the end of the day to invite him to take part in the challenge to preserve the province in 2019.

Gutiérrez said he could not attend his cell phone for 20 years, so if Figueroa had called him, he would not have been able to come. He had attended a congratulatory call with Senator Pereyra.

Would Figueroa be encouraged to go outside the MPN? Pereyra frankly replied that he did not believe it and that it was necessary to bet on the unit. Gutiérrez preferred the call to unity gestures.

From now on, the provincial election date must be determined, for which the governor denied a specific answer: "Step by step we had to win the internship first and then we will determine the date".

To begin with, a web of meetings and agreements will start, because it is the board of directors whose management is shared by Jorge Sapag and Pereyra, who draw up the list of provincial deputies with the waiting places, that is, they can go to court to reach the legislative power. The loser may have deputies, but the leadership of the party says where it is. Everyone knows that after substitution number 12 it is difficult to sit on the comfortable, leather-embroidered Leloir 810.

In numbers

30,000

votes about was the difference obtained by the Blue over the Violet, according to official information released last night by the president of the MPN.

74,400

votes obtained the blue list. In 2014, the formula Gutiérrez Figueroa took 69,631.

120,000

They voted in the internal and open election of the MPN of a standard of 420,735 connected and independents.

He lost the intendants of El Chañar, El Cholar, Caviahue and Chos Malal

With more than 60% of polling stations in the province, the Blue list yesterday announced a resounding victory. Their representatives said they won at 50 of the 54 locations.

In the north of Neuquén, region with a clear influence of the Violeta list, the sector under the leadership of the governor, Omar Gutiérrez, won unexpected victories. In Huinganco, with 100% of the counted tables, Azul won with a small difference. He won 49.39% of the votes in the governors category against 46.76% of his competitor. He also stayed at Las Ovejas, a city where he earned 54.32% of the votes.

He achieved a comfortable victory in the oil region & # 39; s such as Añelo and Rincón de los Sauces. In both he won with 60% of the votes.

La Azul also performed well in the south of the province. In San Martin de los Andes with 85.19% of the counted tables, the Gutiérrez list was left with 61.26% of the votes. In Villa La Angostura 91.66% of the data won the current president with 53.77% of the votes. In Villa Traful the victory was 55.67%.

The list, led by the current governor, Rolando Figueroa, won in San Patricio del Chañar, Chos Malal and El Cholar.

In the oil cities such as Añelo and Rincón de los Sauces, keys for Vaca Muerta, the Blue list retained the applications for the quartermaster.

A classic: taxi & # 39; s and contracted vehicles

On Saturday, most petrol stations crossed with vehicles ready to load their tanks. Yesterday in a central corner of the capital Neuquén became the base for the operation of taxis.

According to information from the Peones union, about 280 units went to the provincial party's internal elections, but did not indicate which list.

Figueroa did not speak but left suspicion about the elections

The opponent of the moment was the big absent last night when they knew the preliminary results of the internal movement of the popular Neuquino movement (MPN). Deputy Governor Rolando Figueroa avoided the loser photo when the Electoral Council gave Omar Gutiérrez an advantage of 57% against 39% and sent the lawyers of the Violeta list to the press conference they had given the minutes before the 21st to denounce the election. " fraudulent". "This has been transformed into a catalog of maneuvers, fraud and non-transparency," said José Russo representative Federico Brollo and Rodolfo Chaneton in an office in Independencia Street.

The spokesman called "tightening", "trout tickets" and resulted in a number of tables that are "very different, almost magical", but clarified that they will analyze today whether they will formulate a complaint in court. He justified that they could not do so in the course of the elections because the election law was "closed" and no one received the proposals. "The Judges of the Judiciary have seen nothing and we do not know where they are," questioned about the 23 inspectors who had been appointed to check the elections in the big cities.

Violeta's was an anticipated speech because her members had already stated that their Blue competitors & # 39; a fraud & # 39; had prepared that they had bought votes and had extorted people to vote.

"We feel disappointed by our colleagues" It is always possible to smooth out rough edges, but in this context it is very difficult, here is betrayal ", said Russo.

The vice-governor will speak today at 11 am to give his vision on what happened, because the analysis of the data "requires a more vision of a statesman, less warm," said the lawyer.

Figueroa chose yesterday to wait for the results in his house with his daughters and he answered no questions from the press after 18 years. His most important candidates also remained silent.

The preliminary results indicated a victory for Violeta in the intentions of Chos Malal, El Cholar and El Chañar.

analysis: Gutiérrez with his own stamp in the blue list

Governor Omar Gutiérrez reached a little more than an election victory yesterday. He scored his personal mark on a creation of the former governor Jorge Sapag: the Blue list. Both he and his opponent and opponent, Rolando Figueroa, came to the government in the hands of the leader and as part of a renewal within the MPN.

The presence of Sapag, from the shadows, was a constant suspicion both internally and externally. That was the case that Figueroa dedicated much of his criticism to his exmentor.

"This is all about him," said a Gutiérrez employee. The governor opted for equipment and style: young profiles and show management. With that and without the battery of presumptions of Figueroa perforating reality, it could obtain the triumph. But it remains to be seen whether it will reach to reunite the MPN and to keep the government after 2019.
