Argentine President Alberto Fernandez
The President of Argentina, Alberto Fernandezsaid this Tuesday, the 6th, that “an innocent person was convicted”, after the publication of the sentence of six years in prison and disqualification from holding public office against his vice president, Cristina Kirchner🇧🇷 “Today, in Argentina, an innocent person was convicted. Someone that the legal powers try to stigmatize with complacent judges, who go around in private planes and luxury mansions on the weekends”, wrote the president on his Twitter account. Fernández thus referred to the announcement he made on Monday that he would ask the justice system to investigate businessmen, judges, prosecutors and former civil servants for allegedly being part of a corruption scheme. The representative denounced in his message that the conviction of the former president (2007-2015): “is the result of a trial in which the minimum forms of a fair process were not addressed”, starting with “the principle of not judging two the same act over and over again. Fernández expressed his solidarity with the vice president “knowing that she is the victim of an absolutely unfair persecution”. The vice president was sentenced Tuesday to six years in prison and perpetual disqualification from holding public office on trial for irregularities in the bidding process for road works during his two terms as president (2007-2015).
Today, in Argentina, an innocent person has been condemned. Someone who has the factual powers will try to stigmatize through means of communication and persecuted through complacent judges who travel on private planes and luxury mansions on weekends.
