Presidential hopeful Alberto Fernández testified Wednesday before the court investigating the Cristina Fernández de Kirchner administration's 2013 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Iran.
Prosecutors allege the former national government colluded with the Islamic Republic, offering impunity for Iranian officials' alleged involvement in the 1994 bombing of Buenos Aires' AMIA Jewish cultural centre, in exchange for trade benefits for Argentina.
Little was known of Fernández's statement to judge Claudio Bonadio at press time. He arrived a little after 10am to the Retiro courthouse.
Fernández was the Cabinet chief of late former president Néstor and, briefly, during Fernández de Kirchner's frist term. After several years of bitter division and public tension, he is now running for president with Fernández de Kirchner as his running mate.
On Tuesday, he celebrated Independence Day alongside his candidate for governor of Buenos Aires Axel Kicillof and the lead candidate on the ballot for legistlative seats representing Buenos Aires province in the national Congress, Sergio Massa.
