MIAMI, United States. – Hundreds of people demonstrated this Monday in front of the residence of Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, after the Prosecutor’s Office announced its request for 12 years in prison for the current vice president of the country for alleged corruption, as reported elDiario.es.
This Monday, the prosecutor considered that Fernández de Kirchner had acted as “chief” of a plot of “systematic corruption” around a public work, which caused a damage of 1,000 million dollars to the State.
In that sense, the vice president is accused of fraudulent administration and of having headed an illicit association together with her late husband, Néstor Kirchner, between 2003 and 2015.
The supporters of Fernández de Kirchner arrived at the gates of the former president’s residence in the afternoon, after a protest and a cacerolazo in the same place.
According to local press reports, several police officers had to intervene so that there would be no clashes between supporters and opponents of the vice president.
“The city police used sticks, pepper spray and tear gas to repress citizens who approached Juncal and Uruguay as a show of support against the insults of a group of macrista madmen,” She complained Fernández de Kirchner on his Twitter account.
According to prosecutor Diego Luciani, the former president was the “head” of an illicit association made up of “high-ranking” public officials and who acted for the “profit and greed” motives.
“This is probably the largest corruption maneuver that has ever been known in the country,” said the prosecutor in his final statement of the so-called “Cause Vialidad.”
Shortly after the sentence request against Fernández de Kirchner was published, the Presidency of the nation condemned the legal process against the vice president.
“The national government condemns the judicial and media persecution against Vice President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner that was expressed today, once again, in the final argument and request for punishment in the so-called Road Cause,” reads the text.
“None of the acts attributed to the former president has been proven and all the accusations against her refer only to the role she exercised during that period, which pitifully degrades the most elementary principles of modern criminal law,” he adds.
