Kirchnerism is determined to go ahead with the impeachment request for members of the Supreme Court. The determination responds to a specific fact: The vice president’s judicial future will at various times be in the hands of the highest court. In an election year in which a new presidential term is defined, the Judiciary must resolve delicate cases involving the children of Cristina Kirchner as well as other files for alleged acts of corruption in which you are the main defendant.
This February 1, the judicial activity resumed, after the usual fair. The political scenario is marked by the confrontation between the Executive Power and the Judicial Power, which presents Congress with a request for impeachment against the ministers of the Court.
The federal court dealing with corruption cases has several decisions to make in this first phase of the year They involve the vice president and, in two rows, his children Máximo and Florencia Kirchneras well as his former business partner Lázaro Báez.
One of the first resolutions that could be known is that of Section IV of the Chamber of Cassation regarding the twelve-year prison sentence for Báez, accused of laundering 55 million dollars.
These recycling operations were carried out through Austral Construcciones, the company that won the 51 road tenders with irregularities for 46,000 million pesos.
In the ruling, two of the judges of the Federal Oral Court 4 (TOF 4) indicated irregularities in public road works as a predicate crime for these laundering maneuvers: the trial in which Cristina Kirchner ended up sentenced to six years in prison for the crime of fraudulent administration to the detriment of the State.
