Argentina judge seeks arrest of former President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner



A judge in Argentina says he is seeking the arrest of former President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner over accusations she took part in a political cover-up.

 
Ms Fernández, who governed for eight years from December 2007, is now a senator and as such enjoys parliamentary immunity.


For her to be arrested, the Senate would have to lift that immunity with a two-thirds majority vote.


Senators said they would consider the judge's request once they received it.
