ESPM International Relations professor Leonardo Trevisan evaluated, in an interview with CNN this Friday (2), the attack suffered by the vice president of Argentina, Cristina Kirchner.
“Political violence has gone up a few steps,” Trevisan said. “There is no doubt that the door to Kirchner’s house has turned into a political arena.”
According to the Argentine Federal Police, a Brazilian man, identified as Fernando André Sabag Montiel, 35, was detained. He is named by the police as the author of the shooting attempt.
Videos of people who were close to the crowd around the vice president captured the moment when a man points a gun at Cristina’s head and shoots. She reaches to bring her hands to her head, but the weapon misses.
“Society can’t stand that whoever thinks of us is just an opponent. We are treating you like an opponent that needs to be eliminated. This is a problem that cannot be admitted.”
“It is obvious that [o atentado] should serve as a warning so that political hatreds are replaced by debate”, he concluded.
