Former President Cristina Fernandez on Monday denied any wrongdoing following recent accusations that she was responsible for a corruption scheme involving public works contracts that has ensnared many of Argentina’s former officials and business elite.
Fernandez appeared before a court in Buenos Aires but declined to speak. Instead, she said in a written statement that the accusations by Federal Judge Claudio Bonadio, who summoned her to testify, are false and politically motivated.
So far, 15 people have been arrested in the case. They include business leaders from construction companies and former officials who served in Fernandez’s 2007-2015 administration.
