  • housing
Información recibida en relación con el inminente desalojo de los pobladores del asentamiento popular de Guernica, en la provincia de Buenos Aires. Se trata de 2500 familias, con aproximadamente 2.797 niños, niñas y adolescentes, y 51 mujeres que huyen de situaciones de violencia de género, que no tienen otra solución habitacional. Quisiera asimismo llamar a la atención del Gobierno de su Excelencia que este desalojo se realiza durante la pandemia de COVID-19, poniendo en grave riesgo la vida de las personas afectadas, así como la salud pública, y que todavía no parece haberse logrado una solución alternativa para las personas que serían desalojadas.

  • independence of judges and lawyers
Información recibida sobre varias reformas legales, proyectos de ley y actos del Estado, que generarían una afectación a la independencia judicial, tanto institucionalmente, como de sus jueces y magistrados, e incluso de sus funcionarios jubilados; todo ello por medio de la injerencia desde otros poderes del Estado. En particular, quisiera destacar la información recibida sobre afectaciones a la imagen e institucionalidad del sistema judicial, a la reducción de salarios y regresión en la condición de empleo de sus funcionarios; a la modificación de su régimen jubilatorio; a la garantía contra presiones externas y sobre el proceso en marcha de selección y designación de las altas magistraturas judiciales, los cuales podrían no ajustarse a los estándares internacionales vigentes sobre independencia judicial.
