  • Justice.Cristina Kirchner maneuvers with President Alberto Fernández to stop his processes for corruption

One is exercising more and more power from his silent vice-presidency, while the other seems to want to lead the opposition on Twitter and from Switzerland.

They are Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and Mauricio Macri, former president, former president and the clearest reflection of the polarized politics of Argentina, a country where almost anything is possible.

Even an eye for an eye involving the children of former heads of state.

This is what Macri believes, as published in "La Nación" by

Hugo Alconada Mon

, one of the most renowned investigative journalists in the country.

Alconada revealed Macri's dialogues at dawn in Europe, where he spent all of August, with people he trusted in Buenos Aires.

In them, the former president confesses:

"She (for Fernández de Kirchner) is convinced that her daughter Florencia suffered a judicial persecution that I ordered and now wants revenge."

Florencia is the daughter of Cristina, a 30-year-old young woman who is dedicated to the cinema and spent almost a year in Cuba to recover from an illness that was never fully explained, but that would derive from the stress generated by the possibility of going to prison.

Why to prison?

Because together with her brother Máximo, spokesperson for the Peronist group in the Chamber of Deputies, she

is accused of money laundering in two cases related to hotels in Patagonia owned by the family


The case progresses slowly, but is elevated to oral and public trial.

When former president

Néstor Kichner

died, Cristina added her children to the board of the hotel companies.

Unlike Cristina, who has privileges as vice president, and Máximo, who has them as a parliamentarian, no special benefit stands between Florencia and being admitted to prison if she is found guilty.

This situation generated strong tensions between mother and daughter, according to local media reported in recent years.

The vice president, in addition to the two money laundering cases, is involved in others in which she is considered the head of an "illicit association" to commit crimes with State money.

Macri assures that he, president between 2015 and 2019, had "nothing to do" with the legal misadventures of Máximo and Florencia, but a year ago, during an interview when he was still president, he spoke about the issue and pointed directly at Cristina:

"She has to take charge of the things she did. Cristina did not take care of the children, she involved them in the things she did."

Not a few local analysts believe that in a while it will be Cristina who can say that Macri did not take care of her children.

Franco Macri, Mauricio's father, managed the Correo Argentino postal service as of 1997 thanks to a concession from then-president

Carlos Menem


In 2003, Néstor Kirchner, already in the Presidency, rescinded the concession and determined that the Macris owed 296 million dollars to the State.

The controversy continues and until today there is no agreement.

In 2009, Macri had transferred his shares in Socma, the family business, to his children Gimena, Agustina and Francisco.

Today, the former head of state regrets that decision.

"According to Macri's lawyers, the vice president's intention is to promote the cause so that the judge ends up ruling a fraudulent bankruptcy of the family business and entangle the young Macri in a judicial tangle of going through the courts," wrote

Ignacio Miri

in "Clarín" weeks ago.

In the government of Alberto Fernández there is a person of great power,

Carlos Zannini

, who is personally taking care of taking the cause of the Argentine Mail along that path, the newspaper adds.

Who is Zannini?

The Treasury attorney, which is equivalent to being the head of all the state attorneys.

"There is an orchestrated plan of persecution and revenge against Macri and his family


Pablo Lanusse

, a former Secretary of Justice and today Macri's lawyer

, said recently


Lanusse warned about the judicial reform promoted by Fernández, and that Macri's opposition coalition rejects outright: "It is to guarantee Cristina's impunity in a brutal and grotesque way (...) Good people have to mobilize because the judicial reform it intends to destroy the Supreme Court of Justice. We have to defend it from the abuses of power. "

The mobilization, with strong concurrence, has already occurred, and the 'no' to justice reform was a unifying theme.

Even a few hundred protesters gathered in front of the building where Fernández de Kirchner lives to shout that they will not be "without a Republic."

Even so, the Senate has already approved the reform, although the problem for the ruling party is in the Chamber of Deputies, where the majority of votes are not guaranteed.

The opposition wants to "strike down" the project, which has points of contact with that of the "democratization of justice"

that Cristina managed to pass in Parliament in 2013, but was unable to implement in her second term: the Supreme Court of Justice determined it was unconstitutional.

History - it happens a lot in Argentina - could repeat itself.
