Argentina’s President Accepts AG’s Resignation

BUENOS AIRES – Argentine President Mauricio Macri accepted on Monday the resignation of Attorney General Alejandra Gils Carbo, who has been implicated in a corruption case.

Gils Carbo sent Macri a letter last week in which she resigned from her post effective Dec. 31.

The AG’s resignation was finalized with the publication of an executive order in the Official Bulletin signed by Macri and Justice Minister German Garavano.

Since taking office in late 2015, Macri has been calling on Gils Carbo, who was appointed by former President Cristina Fernandez in 2012, to step down.

A few weeks ago, a judge ruled that Gils Carbo should face trial in a case involving alleged irregularities in the purchase of a building for the AG’s office in 2013.

The governing Cambiemos party’s victory in the Oct. 22 legislative elections prompted Gils Carbo to submit her resignation to the president.

In her resignation letter, Gils Carbo said that “the same reasons” that inspired her to serve “for 20 years in the institution and for more than 30 (years) in the ... administration of justice” now motivated her to “distance” herself from a post in which she had “deepened the transformation” of the Attorney General’s Office to make it “current with the times.”
