VP Boudou will not extend testimony in Ciccone probe

On Wednesday, Federal Judge Ariel Lijo confirmed a summons for Friday allowing the vice president to extend his testimony in the Ciccone case. However, lawyers Diego Pirota and Eduardo Durañona confirmed their defendant Amado Boudou will not show up in court, expected to deliver a written not tomorrow officially informing the judge of the VP’s decision.

Boudou arrived in the country on Wednesday’s afternoon after a tour that took him to Cuba and Panamá where he attended the swearing-in-ceremony of new Panamanian President Juan Carlos Varela.

Cristina Fernández de Kirchner’s second-in-command actually echoed the news about Judge Lijo’s decision to indict him in the case investigating the purchase of the Ciccone Calcográfica company that printed Argentina’s peso currency by the time he was running the Economy Ministry, when he was in Havana.

Boudou had first requested to extend his testimony but after Lijo's indictment ruling the vice president will not be attending court on Friday.
