The 23-year-old woman was found by her phone’s geolocation at Palermo station while traveling on the San Martin railway line.
Argentine police announced on Sunday that Brenda Uliarte, a partner of Fernando Sabac Montel, had been arrested in an attempt to assassinate the country’s vice president, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, last Thursday.
According to reports, the 23-year-old woman was detained at the Palermo station while traveling on the San Martin railway thanks to the geolocation of her phone and by order of the judge in the case, Maria Eugenia Capuchetti, local media gather.
The arrest was carried out by the Argentine Federal Police’s (PFA) Anti-Terrorism Investigation Unit (TUYA). Staff from the Court, the Prosecutor’s Office and the PFA Investigation Section participated in the working group.
Police spokesmen described the order for Uliarte’s arrest after investigations confirmed he was with his accomplice at the scene of the incident, in Recoleta, last Thursday night.
For security reasons, the young woman was transferred to police headquarters at 3350 Cavia Street in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Palermo, the same location where Sabac Montiel is located, Dodo Noticias said.
Uliarte and five of Sabag Montiel’s friends gave an interview Friday night in which they rejected the 35-year-old’s actions and said they were afraid because of the constant threats they were receiving after the attack.
“I am very afraid because they will take the opportunity to work and they accuse us for something we did not do. They say we are a terrorist group and we have nothing to do with it,” the young woman told Telif Noticias, who learned of the attack on television.
In addition, he testified that he never saw the weapon or knew about the 100 bullets in the house they shared. According to his account, the author of the attack, whom he described as “a good man” and a “hard worker,” “complained about the economy, about the high dollar, but not aggressively.”
