Buenos Aires (EFE) .- The Vice President of Argentina, Cristina Fernández, denounced this Friday, declaring before the court that she is judging her for alleged corruption, the “lies, slander and defamation” in which she assured that she had incurred in the Prosecutor’s Office, who asked her for 12 years in prison last August.

“I want to make a formal request to this court so that at the end of the hearings the testimony is extracted from each of the lies of the prosecutors in contrast with the documentary, expert and witness evidence that this trial has had,” Fernández said before the court oral in Federal Criminal 2 of Buenos Aires, and added that it is “a clear case of prevarication (prevarication)”.

In videoconference from his office in the Senate, the Chamber of which he heads, Fernández testified in his defense in the trial phase he is facing for the alleged irregular award of public works during his term as president (2007-2015), when just three weeks have passed since the failed attack he suffered at the gates of his house.

“Lies, slander and defamation”, according to Fernández

In her speech, the leader of Kirchnerist Peronism, who for several years has claimed to be a victim of the political and judicial persecution devised by the government of Mauricio Macri (2015-2019), he congratulated his lawyerswho during this week have advanced their accusations and demonstrated those “lies, slander and defamation”.

“In this same court, prosecutors and judges play (football) in the fifth (state) of former president Macri and no one seems surprised”, launched the vice president, who is prosecuted in various cases, of which only one, this one, notes as “Causa vialidad”, in which there are 13 defendants, has an open trial.

Fernández is accused of committing crimes of illicit association and fraudulent administration of public funds, due to alleged irregularities in the granting of 51 public works to the enterprises of the entrepreneur Lázaro Báez during his tenure and that of her husband, the late Néstor Kirchner ( 2003- 2007), in the southern province of Santa Cruz, the political cradle of Kirchnerism.

“To pull my hair out of this process, they pulled out the Constitution, the penal code, the civil code, the right of administrative procedure, jurisprudence, logic, everything for the hair. It really is nonsense. This does not help, this complicates a country, makes it not very serious, almost on the verge of ridicule ”, said the Argentine vice president.

According to the vice president, this alleged “illicit association has neither head nor tail, but is fundamentally profoundly unconstitutional, profoundly anti-republican and profoundly antifederal”, convinced that it was elected, together with her husband, by the people and could not “ever be an association illicit “.
