Cordero Urges Fernández to Respect the Institutions

Chile’s Minister of Justice, Luis Cordero, has responded to criticism from Argentinian President Alberto Fernández, who accused the Chilean Justice system of aiding those who persecute political opponents. The criticism arose due to the postponement of the trial for alleged political corruption related to the SQM case, which involves former presidential candidate Marco Enríquez Ominami. Cordero dismissed Fernández’s comments as “impertinent and improper,” and urged him to be respectful of Chilean institutions. This is not the first time Fernández has criticized Chilean Justice, having previously signed a letter from the Puebla Group denouncing the prosecution of Enríquez Ominami.

The SQM case has been under investigation for eight years, with a new postponement of the trial occurring in February 2023. The case investigates allegations of illegal financing of candidates and political parties using payments from mining company Sociedad Química y Minera de Chile. In response to the repeated delays in opening the oral hearing, a court ordered the opening of a summary investigation against judges and officials of the Judiciary.
