Ex-Argentine leader Fernandez indicted, tied to nuns and guns scandal


Cristina Fernandez Kirchner, the former Argentine president, has been charged in a corruption case and slapped with a $630m asset freeze over public tenders awarded to a businessman friend during her administration.

That is not the first Argentinian President to be charged with corruption. Carlos Saúl Menem (1989-1999) faced several allegations and was famously given a red Ferrari as a "present" while in office.

Federal Judge Julian Ercolini approved the charges and ordered $633m (£516m) of Fernandez's assets be frozen.

They are accused of running a scheme to fraudulently access public works funding in the Santa Cruz province from 2003 to 2015.

Nisman's body was discovered hours before he was to brief Congress about accusations that Fernandez tried to whitewash Iran's role in the truck bombing of the AMIA Jewish Center in Buenos Aires, which killed 85 people.

Lopez and his direct boss, former Planning Minister Julio De Vido, were indicted along with Fernandez on Tuesday.

Fernandez has been accused of favouring Baez's construction company, Austral, in the concession of contracts for public projects, the report said.

Kirchner has said she will appeal the charges, and said that the current government, of which she is an outspoken critic, was plotting against her to discredit her and her left-leaning opposition movement.

Fernandez was president from 2007-2015.
