Former Argentine President Cristina Fernandez informed the Federal Justice of her intention to travel to Havana for 10 days, to see her daughter Florencia, hospitalized with a post-traumatic stress disorder since last March.
According to several local media outlets, the senator plans to travel to Cuba between April 20 and 30 to follow closely the evolution of her daughter, who was subjected to medical treatment for the impact of the fierce political persecution that weakened her health.
Fernandez made his request before the three oral courts and the federal court in charge of Claudio Bonadio, who has several cases opened against her.
After describing as absurd a resolution that forced Florencia to interrupt her medical treatment in Cuba, the former president had requested on April 1 an authorization for her daughter to remain under treatment in Havana until she is discharged. Fernandez has remarked that, in these years of persecution, her daughter complied with all the judicial requirements that were imposed on her and, in no way, her treatment can be termed an obstruction to said judicial processes.
Cristina's daughter had traveled to Cuba at the beginning of March initially for a course she would take at the International Film School of San Antonio de los Baños, but was unable to return to her country due to her health problems.
Florencia is treated at the Surgical Medical Research Center, where she was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress and other causes such as purpuric syndrome under study, demyelinating sensitive polyneuropathy of unknown etiology, amenorrhea under study, low body weight and light lymphoedema of the lower limbs of unknown etiology.
