chord confirmed Telam, Beraldi announced the formal presentation in the next few hours. She requested that the current vice president take over as defense attorney on her own behalf. She then cited article 104 of the National Criminal Procedure Code (CPPN) where it is ensured that “the accused shall have the right to be defended by a lawyer of the license plate of his trust or by the official defender; he may also defend himself personally as long as this does not prejudice the effectiveness of the defense and does not impede the normal conduct of the process”.

“On Friday the doctor is going to take part in the exposition of the allegation,” said Cristina Kirchner’s lawyer before the judges when pointing out her allegation.

The former president of the Alliance was his own lawyer, along with other professionals, in the oral trial for the bribes in the Senate for the approval of the Labor Reform Law in 2000. The trial lasted fourteen months and, finally, he was acquitted in 2013 by TOF No. 3 in which he was dismissed.

De la Rúa not only spoke in his arguments but also participated in most of the trial hearings. He also questioned his former vice president Carlos “Chacho” Álvarez when he testified as a witness. After learning of the ruling, the former president assured that the decision “left my government free of any suspicion of corruption.” In addition, he added that the complaint was a “starting point of a political plot.”

Cristina Kirchner’s provocative posts

Although the defense will be on Friday, the vice president has already loaded the artillery to target prosecutors Diego Luciani and Sergio Mola. Since the defense arguments began this week, Cristina Kirchner has redoubled the criticism against both by treating them as liars, false and even “trolls” and ridiculous.

«Tomorrow, starting at 8 am, Dr. Alberto Beraldi begins the plea for my defense in the trial known as ‘Vialidad’. He listens carefully as he undresses the scripted farce of prosecutors Luciani and Mola. Will Clarín and La Nación broadcast it? », The former president had announced on her Twitter account on September 19. Finally, it will be her who will lend her voice and face again to defend herself.
