A Judge Issues An Arrest Warrant For A Former Argentinian President

Ms. Fernandez's vice president and planning minister are already jailed awaiting trial, and another Cabinet official, Legal Secretary and 2015 vice presidential candidate Carlos Zannini, was taken into custody Thursday on Judge Bonadio's orders.

A federal judge in Argentina on Thursday indicted former Argentina president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner on treason charges, asking for her arrest on charges that she covered up Iran's possible involvement in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires.

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. Héctor Timerman, her former foreign minister, was placed under house arrest.

Fernandez and members of her government "betrayed traditional and historical national interests and those of the people affected by the attacks" and looked to "gain impunity for Iranian citizens accused in the attack on the AMIA headquarters and to normalize relations between both states", Bonadio wrote in a 491-page complaint.

The order is the latest move to resolve a case that's gripped Argentina for years.

The charges largely stem from a case filed by special prosecutor Alberto Nisman, whose mysterious death from a gunshot wound - hours before he was set to testify before Congress in January 2015 - had rocked Argentina at the height of Ms. Fernandez's power.

Kirchner's leftist alliance in the Senate has a total of 32 seats in the 72-seat Senate, but only around a dozen senators are in the Kirchner camp. Argentinean President Mauricio Macri cancelled the memorandum in December, 2015, in his first week in office. Right before Nisman was to present his findings to the Argentine Congress, he was found dead.

The attack - which followed a 1992 bombing of the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires that killed 29 people - devastated Argentina's Jewish population, the largest in Latin America at about 300,000 people.
