Alberto Fernández, President of the Nation, expressed solidarity with Vice President Cristina Kirchner and condemned the “judicial persecution” against him, after the request for twelve-year sentences was known in the framework of the case called “Roads.”

“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,” the Presidency highlighted in a statement.

For his part, the head of state stated on his Twitter social network account: “Today is a very unpleasant day for someone who, like me, has grown up in the family of a judge, has been educated in the world of law and teaches Criminal Law for more than three decades. I once again convey my deepest affection and solidarity to the vice president @CFKArgentina”.

The head of state expressed himself in this way moments after federal prosecutor Diego Luciani requested twelve years in prison and lifelong disqualification for the vice president, considering her “head” of an illicit association.
