VP Boudou defence to appeal indictment
Lawyer of Vice President Amado Boudou Martín Magram has accused Federal Judge Claudio Bonadío of “arbitrary” performance in the magistrate's decision to indict Boudou for alleged irregularities in the purchase of a car.
Magram confirmed the VP’s legal team will file an appeal against a Friday's ruling by Judge Bonadío charging President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner’s second-in-command for allegedly participating in the “falsification of a public document” in the purchase of a vehicle.
“The signature and ID of Boudou were forged,” the lawyer told reporters today accusing Bonadío of using “euphemisms” and “linguistic turns” to prove something that “could not be proved by any means.”
In that sense, the vice president’s legal representative said the indictment was decided “without specifying” Boudou’s alleged intervention, denouncing an already existing “intention” of judge Bonadío to charge him.
Yesterday's was the second indictment against the VP. On June 27, he has put to face corruption charges in the Ciccone printing company case.
