Court confirms Boudou's Friday summons to extend testimony

Vice President Amado Boudou shows up in court to be questioned by Federal Judge Ariel Lijo in recent weeks.

Federal Judge Ariel Lijo has confirmed Friday’s hearing for Vice President Amado Boudou to extend his testimony in the Ciccone corruption case.

According to the Judicial Information Center (CIJ), Boudou has been summoned to court on Friday 5 at 10 am.

Cristina Fernández de Kirchner’s second-in-command was indicted by Judge Lijo on Friday last week for his alleged involvement in the controversial purchase of the Ciccone Calcográfica company, that printed Argentina's peso currency by the time he was economy minister.

Boudou’s defence will now have to confirm whether the VP attends the hearing and provided further testimony on a high-profile political case that has prompted the opposition here to demand Boudou takes a leave while the judicial process is on course.
