A Judge Issues An Arrest Warrant For A Former Argentinian President

Former foreign minister Hector Timerman was ordered held under house arrest due to health issues.

Fernandez is accused of trying to cover up Iranian officials' involvement in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center, known as AMIA, in Buenos Aires in exchange for favorable trade deals.

In 2015, Argentina declassified files on two attacks, which devastated the country's Jewish community: the files on the 1994 bombing and documents relating to the 1992 bombing outside the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires that left 29 dead and 200 wounded.

She has previously called the case, in which she is accused of treason, an "absurdity".

Judge Claudio Bonadio also requested that Kirchner - who served as president from 2007-15 and is now a senator - be stripped of her immunity.

A judge in Argentina yesterday ordered the arrest of former president Cristina Kirchner on charges of 'treason against the fatherland'.

"This accusation is based on an agreement ... that would allegedly allow Argentine judges to interrogate Iranian officials that Argentina claims were involved in that investigation", she said.

Larry Nassar Ex-Team USA Doc Gets 60 Years In Prison
Nassar was sacked from Michigan State University in September 2016, and USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians, cut ties in 2015. Nassar worked at Michigan State University and at USA Gymnastics, the Indianapolis-based group that trains Olympians.

The arrest order is also linked to accusations made by murdered special prosecutor Alberto Nisman.

The ex-head of the Federal Intelligence Agency, Oscar Parrilli, was ordered not to leave the country. The 64-year-old faces charges including money laundering, bribery and criminal conspiracy in the so-called Hotesur case, named after a Kirchner family hotel business in Patagonia, the suspected source of the allegedly laundered funds.

The charges have been rejected several times by courts as lacking substance, but the case was reopened in February this year. In November, Argentina's border police agency concluded that Alberto Nisman, who led the probe, was murdered just four days after formally accusing then-president Kirchner of the cover-up in January 2015.

Her political clout has since faded with the victory of center-right President Mauricio Macri in elections later that year, but the populist firebrand now seeks a comeback as leading the opposition against Mr. Macri.

The Senate will now have to vote on lifting Kirchner's immunity, however, this is not likely to happen before the end of 2017, according to Bo, because of the holiday recess and divisions over the validity of the judge's decision.

Several prominent members of her former government have been detained on corruption charges in recent weeks, including ex-public works minister Julio De Vido and Amado Boudou, Kirchner's vice president from 2011 to 2015.
