The president of the PRO, Patricia Bullrich, complained to the Government about the reduction and some “unforeseen and unexplained” changes in the custody of Mauricio Macri, so he warned that “It seems that the intention is to expose him and his family and leave them defenseless in situations of insecurity.”

Constant changes in personnel and vehicles do not help give the former president the protection his inauguration deserves. I therefore request that you stop these unforeseen changes, assign at least one more armored vehicle to custody and comply with what was agreed at the time, ”Bullrich said.

In a letter addressed to the Minister of Security, Sabina Frederic, The leader highlighted the “concern about the inconveniences we have had this year with the assignment of custody of the former president” and mentioned that on one occasion Macri’s wife, Juliana Awada, “he stayed no protection no warning during a lunch “and that” in April We were asked to return two armored vehicles with a promise to be returned, something that has not happened yet”.

“Further, the former president and his family have suffered suspicious episodes. His capsule was chased by strangers when leaving his home and an explosive detonated meters from his house a few days ago. On both episodes there are judicial investigations underway ”, affirmed Bullrich.

For the president of the PRO, “seeing this, instead of reinforcing custody, as happens in consolidated democracies, where the security of a former president is a matter of State, we receive messages in the opposite direction ”.

“As you know,” Bullrich continued, “former President Macri asked his ministry for the smallest custody possible for a former president. It is not intended for large displays or demonstrations. He just wants to feel protected together with his family. That’s why we feel that the constant changes, in personnel and vehicles, do not help to give the former president the protection that his inauguration deserves ”.

According to those close to the former president, Macri had been assigned at the beginning of the Fernández government 35 guards and 4 armored vehicles. In 2016, during the government of Cambiemos, Cristina Kirchner had 90 guards and 10 armored vehicles.

The problems, according to those sources, began last March, when the former president They surprisingly removed half of his custody and, given the complaints, they returned almost all he had: they never replaced three experts in explosives.

In March they even took away an armored Toyota pickup and in July they gave him a unshielded. For all these data, which macroism attributes to a political decision of the Government, Bullrich decided to send the letter to the Minister of Security and make its content public.

Sources from the Ministry of Security told . that “the former president was informed that a car change was going to be made. This has yet to be done. An armored van belonging to the Superintendency of Presidential Custody of PFA will be returned to the orbit of presidential custody so that the current head of state, Alberto Fernández, has said vehicle at his disposal ”.

Mauricio Macri will be kept in custody and will be given a car with the same security conditions they added. In addition, the Minister of Security, Sabina Frederic, informed Patricia Bullrich that she will not carry out intermediation with her since custody is for the former president of the Nation and will be carried out through formal and institutional channels ”.
