The DNU, which provides for the demise of the domain, entered Congress yesterday. The two-member committee of the legislative process, which has to analyze the validity of the decree, has a 10-day deadline for issuing an opinion, even though Marcos Cleri (FpV-PJ) Chief Executive Officer announced he would try to convene it for next February 6th. It will be the first legislative event of the year. The government has not yet defined the program of extraordinary sessions for February, although legislative sources do not exclude that if the DNU directs to refuse, we will change its consent to the normal course of law.
The process of civilizing the demolition of the domination, ordered last week by Mauricio Macri, will pass the next Wednesday of the commission, which is part of eight pro-government lawmakers and eight opponents. The body chaired by Cleri (who has the right of double voting) must issue an opinion in favor of or against the executive's text, which has led to a strong rejection both between opposition leaders and lawyers.
The central criticism of DNU is that the expropriation of property for persons accused of corruption or drug trafficking is a matter of criminal law in which the executive body is forbidden to legislate under Article 99 (3) of the Constitution. The National Government asserts that this is a civil action despite the fact that the termination of ownership originates in criminal proceedings. Another issue is related to the lack of conviction to rid the accused of their property, which according to various lawyers violates the principle of innocence.
While the unity of the opposition could complicate the plans of the ruling party, the commission that meets on Wednesday has four representatives of the Argentine federal bloc (the PJ sector most similar to Casa Rosada), three of the FPV-PJ and the senator. salteña Cristina Fiore Viñuales, very good relations with the official. His vote will be decisive because, according to what the head of the intergroup in Argentina in the Senate, Miguel Pichetto, his four deputies would tend to reject. In fact, before it was possible to re-discuss the project at the congress, Pichetto recalled that the Senate had already approved an initiative in this sense with corrections to the law approved by the Chamber of Deputies.
In any case, the government has successfully passed its DNU through Congress, because the rejection of the plenary session of both houses is needed to fall. Another decree, which was sent yesterday to Congress, is to transmit mobile telephony frequencies from the ARSAT public satellite company to the National Communication Agency (ENACOM) and make it available to the private sector.
In Decree No 62/2019 signed by Macri, Marcos Peña, and the Cabinet of Ministers, "a Domiciliary Termination Office is created for the benefit of a State State with faculties conducting ex officio investigations, and it co-operates with identifying the placement of assets that might come from one of the criminal acts "envisaged under the regime, such as those relating to public property, drug trafficking and organized crime.
Although the ruling party says it is not DNU "with name and surname," Laura Alonso's head of anti-corruption office said the proceeds were for former President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. "I do not know if Cristina will go to jail, but I'm sure it will end without a peso," Alonso said.
