In a statement released on social networks, the inter-American forum specified that the meeting will take place at the Kirchner Cultural Center within the framework of the III World Forum on Human Rights and will be entitled “From the military to the judicial party, threats to democracy.”

The conclave, intended to denounce the judicial and political persecution of which the former Argentine president is being a victim, will be attended by former presidents Evo Morales, Rafael Correa, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero and the Colombian Ernesto Samper.

Likewise, the jurists Baltazar Garzón, Adoración Guamán and Gisele Ribocom will attend, together with the Hispanic deputies Enrique Santiago and Gerardo Pisarello, the historian and communicator Silvina Romano, the Argentine politicians Oscar Parrilli and Eduardo Valdés, as well as the coordinator of the Puebla Group Marco Enríquez -Ominami.

The unique session will be made up of two thematic tables; the first entitled “The lawfare against democracy in Argentina and Latin America” ​​and the second will deal with the challenges of democracies in the face of the use of justice as a political weapon.

The climax will be the presentation of the book Objective: Cristina.

On December 6, an Argentine federal court sentenced Cristina to six years in prison and perpetual disqualification from holding public office for irregularities in the so-called Road Cause that investigates the fraudulent award of 51 works in the province of Santa Cruz between 2003 and 2015.

During three years of hearings, the vice president has rejected and denied the accusations against her, denouncing the existence of a mafia that controls a state and a parallel judiciary that seeks to disqualify her by blaming her for crimes she has not committed.
