Argentine police investigating the so-called notebooks corruption case began searching the homes of former president Cristina Kirchner on Thursday.

The move came after judge Claudio Bonadio successfully petitioned the Senate on Wednesday to partially lift Kirchner’s parliamentary immunity so her three residences could be searched for evidence of multi-million dollar bribes paid by businessmen in exchange for public works contracts during her administration.
