buenos aires - The missing submarine in Argentina was inspected two days before departure and found safe. Otherwise it should never have left, according to the British broadcaster BBC, a spokesman for the Argentine navy said.

Some relatives of the 44 crewmembers of the lost Argentinean submarine ARA San Juan complained that the 34-year-old submarine was in poor condition due to sustained cuts.

The ship disappeared from the radar on 15 November. Because the submarine only had oxygen for seven days, many have given up hope that the crew will be found alive.

President Mauricio Macri has promised a 'serious and thorough' investigation into the circumstances of the accident.
