Vice president Boudou to be investigated over Ciccone charges
Federal Prosecutor Jorge Di Lello has decided to investigate Vice President Amado Boudou and Ricardo Echegaray, head of the AFIP tax bureau, as part of the investigation regarding the selling of “Ciccone Calcográfica” money printing company.
Boudou’s former associate José María Núñez Carmona, as well as lawyer Alejandro Vandenbroele, have been cited by the attorney.
The case, which began in 2010, investigates an alleged intervention by then-Economy Minister Boudou and Afip head Echegaray, who, according to Di Lello, both carried out illicit negotiations as officials.
However, Echegaray has been summoned as a plaintiff, as same as Nicolás Ciccone, the former owner, and Guillermo Reinwick, his son-in law-.
Federal Judge Ariel Lijo, will have the final word on the matter, and decided whether to press charges against Boudou or not.
In parallel, Lijo is running an investigation of Boudou and his surroundings for supposed unjust enrichment charges.
