While social organizations rejected the harassment against him, the Federal Oral Court 2 sentenced the head of the Senate to six years in prison and permanent disqualification from holding public office.
Said decision coincides with the so-called Road Cause of alleged irregularities in the awarding of 51 works in Santa Cruz province between 2003-2015, facts which Fernández decried and denied during the three-year trial.
As I said in 2019, the sentence was written, the former head of state insisted and recalled that the judge Julian Ercolini, who directed the process, had declared himself incompetent years earlier and the case was transferred to that area. where it was rejected.
The government of Mauricio Macri (2015–2019) revived the cause as if by magic and Ercolini brought it back. They prosecute me for fraudulent administration, but, according to the constitution, the president is not responsible for the administration and execution of the budget, which is the responsibility of the chief of staff, Fernández explained.
Throughout the trial, we proved that I did not break the laws or manage anything. This is the responsibility of the Congress. We demonstrated that none of the lies that prosecutors Diego Luciani and Sergio Mola told in their landmark plea were true, to the point that when they were supposed to reiterate facts, documents, expertise and testimony, they did not can do.
Fernández insisted that it was not a sentence of the Magna Carta, the administrative laws or the penal code, but that it had its origin in the parastatal system, where decisions about the life, inheritance and liberty of Argentines are made, and that it is outside the election results.
I naively talked about the law, but this is not judicial oppression, this is a parallel state and the mafia, he insisted.
In addition, he denounced the ties of judges and prosecutors with Macri and the participation of Ercolini and other officials in a private visit paid for by Grupo Clarin.
