The comptroller of the Federal Intelligence Agency (AFI), Agustín Rossi, affirmed that the sentence of the Federal Oral Court (TOF) 2 that sentenced Cristina Fernández to 6 years in prison and disqualification from holding public office for fraudulent administration it is “a far-fetched ruling”, and considered that what really happened is that “the attempt to factually proscribe the Vice President was consummated”.
“The ruling is not firm. We have to wait for the fundamentals, although we expected something of these characteristics. The truth is that a ruling was pulled from the hair. Regardless of the fact that the ruling is not firm, what was consummated is the attempted factual proscription of the Vice President,” Rossi said in statements to Nacional Rock.

Meanwhile, the official indicated that Cristina Kirchner’s decision not to be a candidate surprised him and that it is due to “not wanting to burden her political space with her candidacy” so that it is not said that “she is trying to save herself from jail.”
“This fact is consummated and it is the product of the action of this marriage that exists between concentrated media and the judicial power”he pointed.
Along these lines, the AFI comptroller maintained that “he has said that he will not be a candidate”, but “he has not said that he is retiring from politics, he will continue to exercise his leadership role.”
Regarding the situation of the Frente de Todos for 2023, Rossi said that they are going to “compete against the concentrated power of Argentina next year”.
“The power candidate will be from Cambiemos. Most likely (the head of the Buenos Aires Government, Horacio) Rodríguez Larreta. Argentines are going to vote between a candidate and an extra-democratic power that has a leader: (Héctor) Magnetto”.
“The power candidate will be from Cambiemos. Most likely Rodríguez Larreta. Argentines are going to vote between a candidate and an extra-democratic power that has a leader: Magnetto.”
Finally, Rossi considered that the conviction of Cristina “does not dismantle the Frente de Todos” and warned that “if there is any member who considers that the sentence is against Cristina, he is wrong.”
“The political and judicial persecution that we are going to suffer if Cambiemos wins is going to be terrible”he warned.
