Former President Eduardo Duhalde announced that he will legally defend UATRE farm hands union leader Gerónimo “Momo” Venegas´ in the "tampered medicine" case.

"I will request my permission to practice law again and I´ll be acting as a lawyer in this case and in other cases that concern me, including retired citizens and political prisoners,” the Federal Peronist pre-candidate stated.

Duhalde and Venegas have close ties, and the UATRE union leader is one of the presidential candidate´s strongest supporters.

Venegas was first arrested on February 10th and remained in custody for two days. He was released after posting a $500,000 pesos bail. Venegas was summoned by judge Norberto Oyarbide to a hearing on March 14th. He will be questioned about the alleged contributions UATRE farm hands union received from the Health Care department, funds that have been used to buy mobile health units for rural areas.
