Boudou demands judge nix Ciccone witness
The former Ciccone Calcográfica money-printing company is once again giving headaches to Vice-President Amado Boudou, who yesterday requested Judge Ariel Lijo not to take into account the statement of Guillermo Reinwick, who said that Boudou might have played a central role in the transfer of the main mint company in the country.
Reinwick is Nicolás Ciccone’s son-in-law and spoke before the magistrate about negotiations to resurrect the company, while also criticizing former Telefé channel manager Gabriel Bianco, who allegedly mediated to set up a meeting between Ciccone and the vice-president.
Bianco will have to appear before Judge Lijo on Wednesday, Infobae reported yesterday.
Bianco was the man who allegedly arranged the first meeting between Ciccone and Boudou in July, 2010, which took place in a studio that belonged to the Telefé channel, Reinwick said on Tuesday.
Boudou’s lawyer, Diego Pirota, yesterday requested Lijo to dismiss Reinwick’s statement as a witness.
He also accused Ciccone’s son-in-law of giving untrue statements before a court, but that lawsuit was filed before Judge Luis Rodríguez.
In addition, Pirota complained that Judge Lijo did not allow them to join the hearing. Yet the judge kept the hearing closed because Reinwick had accused José Núñez Carmona, Boudou’s friend, of threatening him of shooting one of his children, leading him to be included in a witness protection programme.
