The Supreme Court of Argentina rejected this Tuesday (), resources that the defense of the former president and current vice president of Argentina, Cristina Kirchner , had filed in the lawsuit involving alleged irregularities in the concession of road works.

Judicial sources reported that the court unanimously rejected all objections that had been rejected by both the former president’s defense and those of other defendants in the so-called “Vialidad” case. In it, Cristina Kirchner is prosecuted for the alleged crime of illicit association and fraud to the detriment of the public administration.

Her defense had filed several appeals seeking to demand more evidence, questioning the performance of some appeals rooms and even the alleged partial incompetence of the intervening oral court. The records sought to annul the oral judgment in progress against Cristina Kirchner and other defendants in the case, which will be resumed in 11 of July with the beginning of the argumentation phase.

In this case, the alleged irregularities in the granting of 992 are judged public works to companies owned by businessman Lázaro Báez during the governments of Néstor Kirchner (2003-2007) and Cristina Kirchner (2007-2015) in the province of Santa Cruz.
