Cuban president condemns political trial against Cristina Fernandez

Cuban president condemns political trial against Cristina Fernandez

Havana, Dec 7 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Wednesday condemned the judicial and politically motivated trial against Argentine Vice President Cristina Fernandez, sentenced to six years in prison.

On Twitter, the Cuban president expressed his solidarity and support for the former president of this South American nation (2007-2015), also permanently banned from holding public office in her country after a three-and-a-half-year trial.

Diaz-Canel alluded to the judicial and media harassment against Fernandez, accompanied by the hashtags #CubaTeAbraza and #TodosConCristina.

Previously, also on Twitter, Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez had ratified Cuba´s solidarity with Cristina “in the face of judicial and media harassment, which has clear political purposes.”

On Tuesday, the Federal Oral Court Number 2, integrated by judges Jorge Gorini, Rodrigo Gimenez and Andres Basso, ruled the leader of the Peronist movement was guilty under the alleged crime of fraudulent administration to the detriment of the public administration.

However, she was acquitted of the crime of illicit association, attributed by the prosecutors of the case and a maximum sentence of 12 years, and, the judges published the judicial arguments of the verdict on March 9.
