After the Federal Oral Court 2 rejected this Monday the request to testify again in the investigation, Vice President Cristina Fernández offers this morning, from 11 o’clock and via social networks, a kind of extension of her discharge after the allegation of the federal prosecutor Diego Luciani, who in the Vialidad case requested 12 years in prison and lifelong disqualification from holding public office against the vice president.
Judges Rodrigo Giménez Uriburu, Jorge Gorini and Andrés Basso did not grant the vice president’s request, considering that it was made after the deadline, because the arguments stage had already begun. The argument of the defense, in the representation of the lawyer Carlos Beraldi, is that the prosecutor introduced new evidence in the trial that had not been contemplated; That is why they asked that the former head of state be able to testify again.
Upon learning of the Court’s refusal, Cristina Fernández stated on Twitter that she is facing “a media-judicial firing squad”and anticipated that this Tuesday morning he will provide details of the cause known as “Road”through their social networks.
