Debate Stirred over Security in Argentina

The new development became a reason for the MPs to open up debates on the issue.

The opposition leaders have criticized the government of Cristina Fernandez for failing to keep the rising crime rate in check. According to the National Institute of Statistics, in 2007 at least 2000 cases of crime were reported nationwide.

New Figures by the General Attorney's Office of the Province of Buenos Aires also show that in that area at least 21,000 gun thefts were reported during the first six months of 2010.

The debate on security has been lately followed by a over who should be in charge of security matters in the capital. Secretary of Defense Nilda Garré had said earlier given the go-ahead for the police pull-out from all public buildings.

As reported by Press TV, 33 public hospitals were on strike last week over the lack of what they claim a deep need of security in the workplace. Nilda Garré has made her political decision clear after stating that the government of Buenos Aires “has to take on custody over public buildings”. She also said that the Metropolitan Police of this city “has two thousand officers available to carry out the task”.

While political leaders are fighting over the security forces control, violent and criminal acts make headlines every day in Argentina. The demand for security has become stronger in this country in the last couple of years and led to a hot debate in parliament.
