A civil engineer by profession and a member of the Justicialist Party (PJ, Peronist), Rossi served as Minister of Defense of the Government of Alberto Fernández between December 2019 and August 2021.

He had already held that position between 2013 and 2015, during the Government of Cristina Fernández (2007-2015).

The president said that he met this Saturday with Rossi and Camaño to “order the transition of management.”

“We will continue to work as we have done until now, making its operation transparent and deepening its efficiency within the framework of the rule of law,” said the head of state.

The intervention to the agency that is in charge of the secret services of Argentina had been ordered by Alberto Fernández on December 21, 2019.

The president thanked the management of Caamaño, who “carried forward the organization with remarkable effort and honesty.”

Fernández accompanied her message with a copy of a letter from the intervener, who said that she promoted “the necessary institutional reforms” so that the Federal Intelligence Agency “complies with the legal requirements of a public body.”

“I think I have carried out my work with the responsibility that the position required and have laid the foundations for a new Federal Intelligence Agency, which over time will produce increasingly greater quantity and quality of information useful for decision-making, leaving back forever the anti-democratic practices inherited from an institutional tradition marked by the persecution of dissidents”, he points out in the letter.
