Argentina's former president has been indicted on corruption charges.
On Tuesday, a judge allowed prosecutors to move forward with a case against Cristina Fernández de Kirchner for illicit association and fraudulent administration.
The judge ordered about $640 million worth of Cristina Kirchner's assets be frozen.
Cristina Kirchner served as the country's president from 2007 to 2015. She denied the allegations, claiming they are politically motivated.
The judge also indicted several others, including the former federal planning minister and former public works secretary.
Another South American leader was also in trouble earlier this year. Brazil's Senate impeached President Dilma Rousseff for allegedly altering financial documents to keep government programs running, despite a massive deficit. She, too, denied the allegations and called the impeachment a "coup."
