Tagliapietra will ask to meet Judge Marta Yañez – Télam


Luis Tagliapietra, the father of Colombia lieutenant and ARA San Juan Alejandro Tagliapietra, told Telam that when he returns to Argentina "he will ask for a meeting with Judge (Marta) Yañez to talk about his work in Buenos Aires" because has indicated that for him he "does not have a logical basis" and "removes transparency from the investigation."

The judge traveled yesterday for several hours to the Argentine capital, where he met with Defense Minister Oscar Aguad, who consulted on the date he would receive the report that would raise the advisory commission specifically created for the sinking submarine.

He also met with Navy officials who gave him the first images received by the Argentinean state from the marine builder; and members of the Special Bicycle Investigation Commission on Extinction, Search and Rescue of the Submarine.

Tagliapietra travels to Cape Town (South Africa) aboard the seafront builder, the ship that found ARA San Juan and reported on dawn on Saturday, November 17th. He does it on behalf of the divers of the divers.
Tagliapietra, who is also a lawyer for one of the three complaints about submarine relatives, said that it was "striking" that Judge Yañez "had so many private meetings, even if they were not secret."

Tagliapietra read the interview with the judge that Télam published this morning and referred to Yañez's visit to Buenos Aires aboard the Marine Builder: "The private meetings were amazing to me, maybe they are not secrets, but the difference between the secret and is virtually null, because it can not be legally involved in any procedural question. "

"I rely on the note from Télam, where she (for Yañez) says she went personally to receive the photos but did not have to go to Buenos Aires for that," said the lawyer, adding that "the legal instrument to achieve this is the thing.

"He could have asked Marine to immediately send his pictures and he could do the same to consult with Minister Aguad when he receives the report of the Consultative Commission" investigating the sinking of the submarine.

"The meeting with the Bicameral Commission is different because they are investigating the same thing, and I really saw that they can reach a consensus and work as a team," he said.

Despite this, he understood that such meetings "reduce the transparency of the investigation because, if the meeting was related to procedural matters, he would have had to notify the complaints and complaints not notified" about these meetings.

"And if the meetings were of a personal nature, it is very irregular because a judge must maintain the asceticism of all sides," he added.

Consulted by Télam about what actions he intends to take upon his return to Argentina in Cape Town, Tagliapietra explained that he would meet his partner and his collaborators first.

"I want to see all the details, then I go to the courtyard of Caleta Olivia and I will ask for a meeting with the judge and everything will depend on it," he concluded.
