In this way, this organism that depends on the Executive Power made the decision to resign from his role as plaintiff in the case, dismissing the possibility of accusing the Vice President of the Nation regarding the direction of the contracts in favor of the businessman Lazarus Baezin order to award her the largest number of public concessions, during her term as president.

“Not having evidence proposed by the representation of this body pending production, it is requested that this Anti-Corruption Office be removed from the role of complainant”this is what the note that was sent to the Federal Oral Court 2 points out.

It should be remembered that this same Office initiated the lawsuit against Cristina Kirchner in 2016 and that the trial began in May 2019showing up now 13 defendants, including the vice presidentwho was prosecuted as head of an illicit association that allegedly defrauded the National State, after favoring the construction company Austral, owned by Lázaro Báez.

Also, according to research, this businessman would have benefited from 51 tenders for public works for road construction in the province of Santa Cruz, for a value close to $46,000 million.

The others processed in the cause were July De Vido (former Minister of Federal Planning), Carlos Kirchner (deceased cousin of former President Néstor Kirchner) and Jose Lopez (former Secretary of Public Works).

The speculations that are made regarding the cause, would show that before the end of the year a final sentence can be given. Meanwhile, the prosecutor of the process, Diego Luciani, would be convinced to ask for a conviction. In case of the latter, Cristina Kirchner could receive a sentence of between 5 to 16 years in prison.
