Through a statement released on Friday, September 2, the regional alliance emphasized the need to thoroughly investigate the incident. ALBA-TCP Executive Secretary Sasha Llorenti posted the statement on his Twitter account,
On Thursday night, a man attempted to assassinate the vice president of Argentina as she arrived at her residence in the Recoleta neighborhood of Buenos Aires, capital of Argentina.
The attacker, named Fernando André Sabag Montiel, 35 years of age and of Brazilian nationality, pointed the gun directly in Fernández’s face as she was greeting supporters who had gathered in front of her home. The people were in a vigil to show support for her against the political persecution that the Argentinian judiciary is carrying out in order to stop her from running in the presidential elections of Argentina scheduled for next year.
