News Tech: BUENOS AIRES, Aug 24 (Reuters) – Latin American leaders sent their support to Argentina’s Vice President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner on Wednesday, after a federal prosecutor asked for extensive prison time in her corruption proceedings.

“This persecution aims to remove Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner from public, political and electoral life, as well as to bury the values and ideals she represents, with the ultimate goal of implementing a neoliberal model,” reads the letter.

In a letter widely published on social media, the presidents of Mexico, Colombia and Bolivia said they backed Fernandez de Kirchner two days after a federal prosecutor requested she get a 12-year jail sentence if found guilty. She is charged with defrauding the state and involvement in a scheme to divert public funds while president from 2007 to 2015. read more

The letter was also signed by Argentine President Alberto Fernandez, who said on Monday she was a victim of a “judicial persecution.”

She could appeal any decision, possibly delaying the final verdict for years.
