However, he said that “he has been talking nonsense” and that “we should not give him even a minute of attention.” “Let him say whatever antics he wants,” he added from Córdoba, where this Monday he met with Governor Juan Schiaretti.

Last night, on the program Just One More Turn (TN), Villarruel opened the controversy by giving his opinion on a possible change in the management of the former Navy Mechanics School, declared a world heritage site by UNESCO. “A property like ESMA, which has 17 hectares, could be enjoyed by all the Argentine people. Those facilities, at the time, were intended to house schools and that is what we need most,” said the LLA applicant.

“I would like the discussion to take place on scientific bases and on serious arguments and not as ideological as those that colored the promulgation of the law in 2020.”
The lawyer and president of the Center for Legal Studies on Terrorism and its Victims (Celtyv) maintained that the law that governs the country “unfortunately ends up stretching to infinity” and stated: “Today you find women who are aborting children at term, “I don’t think it’s appropriate.”

When the interviewer asked her about the documentary evidence that supported her statement, the candidate responded: “Just by alleging that you have psychological problems, the mother can obtain authorization for the abortion. Let’s understand that that was not the spirit of the law.” “.

Beyond what he stated, Villarruel clarified that the discussion is not a priority in this economic context. “I believe that this is an issue that has an urgency that is not imminent. The economy is totally exorbitant and that means that you cannot trade or live, your salary is useless, you cannot rent, you cannot do absolutely anything financially. and also, you don’t have security. We don’t encrypt it in time, but at some point we would like the discussion,” he indicated.
