Córdoba Court drops charges on former President Menem
Judges Ignacio Vélez Funes, Vicente Muscará and Rafael Vaggione also backed the dismissal of Martín Balza, ex head of the army at that time.
According to the magistrate’s decision, the evidence presented “was insufficent to motivate an indictment,” against Argentina’s president between 1989-1999.
Five retired soldiers still face charges of criminal mischief, related to the deaths of Carlos Jorge Franke, Edberto González de la Vega, Jorge Antonio Cornejo Torino, Oscar Nicolás Quiroga, Marcelo Diego Gatto and Norberto Osvaldo Emanuel.
