The Argentine Justice dismissed this Friday Vice President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and her children, Máximo and Florencia, in two cases against them that had been brought to oral proceedings more than three years ago and that were never held.

The Federal Oral Court 5 decided by majority to rule out the trials for the cases called Hotesur and Los Sauces, which link the former president (2007-2015) with cases of corruption and money laundering.

One of the three magistrates, Adriana Palliotti, voted to reject the request for dismissal and to move towards oral proceedings.

It is the second time in just over a month that a court has dismissed criminal charges against Kirchner since he returned to government.
