Vandenbroele to face judge today
Federal Judge Ariel Lijo confirmed yesterday that Alejandro Vandenbroele — whose ex-wife accused him of being Vice-President Amado Boudou’s frontman for the firm that purchased the Ciccone Calcográfica mint company — is scheduled to testify today at 11am, rejecting a request for his court appearance to be delayed.
On the other hand, Nicolás Ciccone’s request for his testimony to be postponed was accepted by the judge, but he will still have to declare next Monday. Ciccone founded the mint company that prints the country’s peso notes in 1951.
Tomorrow, Judge Lijo will question Rafael Resnick Brenner and Guillermo Reinwick.
Resnick Brenner was formerly chief adviser to current AFIP tax bureau head Ricardo Echegaray, and allegedly agreed to a payment plan that benefited the mint company that had filed for bankruptcy in 2010.
Reinwick’s father-in-law, Nicolás Ciccone, will appear before Judge Lijo on Monday. Reinwick and Ciccone testified as witnesses in the case in 2013, but they are no longer included as plaintiffs.
The last suspect to appear before Judge Lijo will be Boudou’s partner and friend, José María Núñez Carmona, who is supposed to give testimony on Thursday, June 19 at 11am. He was scheduled to testify yesterday, but his appearance was postponed because he was abroad.
