Justice granted Macri a new permit to travel abroad

Former President Mauricio Macri was authorized this Wednesday to travel to Arabia and Qatar from the 20th to the 27th of this month, within the framework of the case in which he is being prosecuted for alleged illegal espionage on relatives of victims of the sinking of the ARA San Juan submarine.

The new authorization was granted by the judge in the case, Julián Ercolini, at a time when the Federal Chamber of Buenos Aires is analyzing whether or not to confirm the prosecution of the former President after holding the hearing to hear arguments from the parties, judicial sources reported.

Macri will travel to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the State of Qatar from the 20th to the 27th of this month and both the places where he will stay and the purpose of the trip are processed in a file reserved at the request of his defense.

As in previous travel permits abroad, the judge imposed the obligation to “inform his return to the country within 48 hours of his arrival and to return to it if the process requires it in advance.”

“The permission granted is based on the fact that this headquarters has already authorized the previously requested trips, as well as other consorts of cause in requests of the same nature,” the judge considered.

The last permit granted was for a trip to the United States that began last Tuesday with a return to the country scheduled for May 15.
