Vice President Boudou Implicated in Illegal Enrichment Scheme

Share/Bookmark

Prosecutor Jorge Di Tello has ordered the opening of an investigation into alleged illegal enrichment by Vice President Amado Boudou. Alejandro Vandenbroele and José María Núñez Carmona, both involved in the former Ciccone case, are also tied to the new investigation.

The allegations come in the context of a case filed by federal judge Ariel Lijo, who presented prosecutor Di Tello with evidence suggesting Boudou, along with several close companions, received unjust enrichment over the last decade.

A complaint filed by lawyer Alejandro Sánchez Kalbermatten, who represents journalist Cristian Sanz in the Ciccone case, lists several friends, businesses, and properties related to Boudou that have reaped dubious benefits during the period that will fall under the investigation.

The lawyer asked that the investigation look into “direct or indirect shareholding in the companies suspected of corruption,” including Compañía de Valores Sudamericana SA, Ciccone, and London Supply SA.

Additionally, prosecutor Di Tello has been urged to investigate inconsistent funds dispersed in several local bank accounts.

As a result of the recent deepening of the investigation, judge Lijo will be examining both the Ciccone case and the new claims of unjust enrichment.

  1. New Boudou investigation requested by prosecutor
    Fresh charges in Ciccone case
    A new legal front opened up yesterday against Vice-President Amado Boudou — illegal enrichment charges with the same judge as the Ciccone money-printing firm case (Ariel Lijo) but a different federal prosecutor (Jorge Di Lello).
    The latter requested the legal investigation of Boudou and various associates, including José María Nuñez Carmona and Alejandro Vandenbroele (both already involved in the so-called Ciccone case) but also the vice-president’s girlfriend, the journalist Agustina Kampfer. It will now be up to Judge Lijo whether or not to pursue these new charges, presented by journalist Cristian Sanz with the counsel of lawyer Alejandro Sánchez Kalbermatten.
    The charges, which basically widen the field for suspect business transactions beyond the money-printing firm, are considered to be closely linked to the Ciccone case, which would fall to Di Lello if the current prosecutor Carlos Rívolo is taken off the case.
    However, Judge Lijo has yet to decide whether to accept the objections to Rívolo lodged by the businessman Núñez Carmona, although a decision is expected shortly.
