De la Rúa, all accused in bribery case absolved

Former president Fernando de la Rúa arrives at Buenos Aires city court to hear the verdict.
The trial against former president Fernando de la Rúa, accused of allegedly paying bribes to senators to get his labour reform approved in 2000 ended this afternoon raising eyebrows as he was absolved.

Federal Oral Court No. 3 decided the same fate for former Intelligence Agency (SIDE) head Fernando de Santibañes; the former Labour Minister Alberto Flamarique; former Senators Alberto Tell, Remo Constanzo, Ricardo Branda and Augusto Alasino; and former Parliament Secretary Mario Pontaquarto, who were also accused in the case.

In its verdict the justices affirmed no evidence was found to prove the bribes in the Senate existed.
