This Tuesday, Vice President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner had the opportunity to say the “last words” in the trial against her, where she is accused of alleged corruption in public works. The sentence to the 13 defendants will be known next Tuesday, December 6 in the afternoon.

It should be remembered that months ago, the prosecutor in charge, Diego Luciani, requested 12 years in prison against the president of the Senate. For the Prosecutor’s Office, there is no doubt that all the requirements are met for Cristina Kirchner to be sentenced to 12 years in prison for being the head of an “illicit association” and for fraudulent administration due to irregularities in the national public works in Santa Cruz between 2003 and 2015. Judges Andrés Basso, Jorge Gorini and Rodrigo Giménez Uriburu will be the ones who finally hand down a sentence within a week.

In his address from his office in the Senate, Fernández said that “More than a Lawfare court, this court is a firing squad. Luciani and Mola dedicated themselves to insulting, offending, insulting and acting not in accordance with the law”.

In addition, he made reference to the assassination attempt against him. “For 20 days they invented facts, hid others, misrepresented. And on September 1, a man shoots, he tried to kill me, and the shot didn’t come out. The woman who accompanied him, Brenda Uliarte, followed prosecutor Luciani on Facebook or Twitter. Curious coincidence,” she noted.

“Do you seriously believe that our government committed fraud to the detriment of the public administration?” he asked in another instance. “We handed over a debt-free country and people’s living conditions were much better than today.” He also criticized former President Mauricio Macri, but without naming him, remarking that “however, those who brought the IMF and 45,000 million dollars that we don’t know where they are, have no problem and are in Qatar watching the World Cup.”
