Federal judge Claudio Bonadio is preparing to register the houses and properties of the former president of Argentina, Cristrina Fernández de Kirchner, and then request the cancellation of her political immunity so she can be tried as a common citizen.
The famous judicial case known by many as “the corruption notebook”.
What about a driver of Roberto Barata, the former number two of the powerful former Argentine minister Julio de Vido? Popularly known as the “cashier” of the government.
For this reason, Judge Bonadio keeps powerful Argentine businessmen in prison. Being that some of them will declare as “protected” as is the case of Angelo Calcaterra (cousin of President Mauricio Macri) and his former general manager. They have already accepted the regime of collaborators of justice and, therefore, were released immediately and their sentence will be greatly reduced.
Many are the people who are nervous at this moment, the notebook where the repentant driver took notes of the places and the names of the people involved in the bribes are a concern for some very important businessmen.
To what extent Bonadio will advance in the cause is still uncertain. Can he eliminate the political privileges of Crisitina? It is very difficult. The senator and Peronist leader Miguel Picheto anticipated it when he said that they will only vote in favor of a political trial if there is a final sentence. Something that does not happen today.
