The Federal Court of Argentina found former President Cristina Fernandez de Kerchner guilty in the corruption investigation case and sentenced her to 6 years in prison.
During Tuesday’s trial, which was broadcast live on YouTube, the judge banned Kershner from holding public office for life in addition to the six-year prison sentence.
In this court, Kirchner was found guilty of embezzlement and illegal company registration. However, as long as his immunity in the guise of the vice president remains, he will be immune from serving prison time.
In August, Argentine prosecutors asked a federal court to sentence Kirchner to 12 years in prison. Kerchner, who was the president of Argentina from 2007 to 2015, described and rejected all the accusations against him as baseless and politically motivated.
