BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) – Julio De Vido, an ex-minister who served in former Argentine President Cristina Fernandez’s government, turned himself in to authorities on Wednesday after he was stripped of immunity from arrest, local media reported. Congress had earlier voted to strip former planning minister and current lawmaker De Vido of his immunity after a three-judge panel ordered his arrest as part of a probe into an alleged case of fraud, marking a milestone in the country’s anti-corruption fight.
