BUENOS AIRES, June 12 (Xinhua) -- Former Argentine President Cristina Fernandez was given judicial permission Wednesday to travel to Cuba, the Judicial Information Center said.
Fernandez asked the Federal Oral Court 2 for permission to travel to Cuba on July 2-10 to visit her daughter, who is under medical treatment.
The court is trying her for allegedly heading an illegal association to commit fraud by awarding public contracts to businesses which allegedly had close ties with her family.
