BUENOS AIRES (AFP) – The man who tried to murder Argentina Vice President Cristina Kirchner “didn’t act alone”, one of the politician’s lawyers said on Sunday.
Scandal-tainted Kirchner, 69, survived an apparent assassination attempt as she mingled with supporters outside her home on Thursday night when a gun brandished by Fernando Andre Sabag Montiel failed to fire.
“He didn’t act alone because there were preparatory actions to the assassination attempt,” lawyer Gregorio Dalbon told C5N television station, without offering further details.
“There were, without a doubt, other people who were aware of this situation.”
Sabag, 35, a Brazilian national who had been living in Argentina since his youth, has not told investigators what his motivations were.
