The Buenos Aires Minister of Security Sergio Berni shared this Sunday on Twitter a spot with political campaign format, which he himself stars in, and generated all kinds of conjectures. Axel Kicillof’s Cabinet official was armed, at the head of an operation, with epic music.
After meeting with Buenos Aires mayors due to the wave of insecurity that hit the province of Buenos Aires, the minister went out to defend his management with a cinematographic style production. In this sense, he played with the typical phrase that announces “based on real events” to show how you get involved in operations.
“We invited journalists to participate in an operation with #GrupoHalcon. We captured a gang of drug traffickers on the banks of the Matanza River. We seized weapons, marijuana and money. Working hard for the security of the Province from Buenos Aires, “Berni wrote on Twitter along with the video.

At the beginning of the material, you can see the minister’s interaction with members of the international press. Then, images that are part of the operation of the special operations division of the Buenos Aires Police begin to appear.
“Why to know us they have to see us in action“, warns a written text about the images that show the provincial security minister armed, wearing a bulletproof vest and a chinstrap. The material ends with a shot in which he is seen epically observing a helicopter of the rising force.
