Argentine judge asks for former president to be arrested: Telam
BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - A judge in Argentine indicted and asked for former president Cristina Fernandez to be arrested for allegedly trying to cover up Iran’s role in the bombing of a Jewish community center in 1994, state new agency Telam said on Thursday.
As Fernandez is a Senator, Congress would first have to vote to strip her of parliamentary immunity before she can be detained. Federal judge Claudio Bonadio also indicted and ordered house arrest for Fernandez’s ex foreign minister Hector Timerman, Telam said.
Fernandez and Timerman have previously denied wrongdoing.
