Argentina's ex-president Cristina Fernandez charged with treason

Cristina Fernandez was president of Argentina from 2007 to 2015

A judge has ordered the arrest of former Argentinian President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner; she's accused of covering up Iranian involvement in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish center.

Bonadio asserts that this was part of "an orchestrated criminal plan" to cover up the alleged involvement of Iranian officials in return for lucrative trade deals with the Islamic republic.

The charges stem from an investigation initially conducted by Alberto Nisman, a crusading prosecutor who accused Fernandez of a coverup in 2015 and was later found dead in the bathroom of his apartment.

According to Bonadio, the memorandum of understanding signed with Iran was created to ensure "impunity" for the Iranians suspected of the crime and "normalize relations between the two states".

Fernandez has described the accusations as "absurd" and said that seeking to normalize diplomatic relations with another state isn't a crime.

In his 491-page ruling, Bonadio wrote that the 1994 attack on the AMIA center, which killed 85 people and left more than 150 injured, and a 1992 attack on the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires, were "acts of war" by Iran against Argentina.

Fernandez, who was sworn in as a national senator last week, already faces several charges of graft.

In a press conference Thursday at the parliament in Buenos Aires, Kirchner was indignant.

Kirchner, who stepped down after two terms in 2015, won a Senate seat in elections in October, giving her immunity in a slew of corruption cases stemming from the 12 years she dominated Argentina's politics with her late husband Nestor.

Meanwhile, the judge issued arrest warrants for the ex-president's Foreign Affairs Minister Hector Timerman and legal and technical secretary Carlos Zannini. For that to happen, two-thirds of the legislators must decide to remove Kirchner's immunity for an arrest.

Each year thousands of persons remember the bombing.
