Moreno appeals indictment
Domestic Trade Secretary Guillermo Moreno appealed the indictment ordered by Judge Claudio Bonadío as he considered the ruling “arbitrary” and requested the federal court to dismiss it.
His lawyer Alejandro Rúa said Moreno had already been investigated back in 2012 by Judge Julián Ercolini and couldn’t be investigated again over the same matter.
The secretary was formally prosecuted yesterday over abuse of power for fining a think tank that published inflation statistics that differed from those released by the INDEC national statistics bureau.
