After being one step away from parole, Amado Boudou pointed out this Tuesday that the Ciccone cause was part of a judicial assembly so that Daniel Scioli did not win the elections in November 2015. For that investigation the former vice president was condemned on August 7, 2018 for bribery and incompatible negotiations with the public function.
“It was a whole system armed first so that could not win the election Daniel Scioli and then to support the government of Mauricio Macri that we already know the results it left, “said Boudou in a friendly dialogue with Jorge Rial on Radio 10.
Boudou made focus punctually at the scene of his arrest in November 2017. The story became vague: the arrest of the former vice president of Cristina Kirchner was evidently after the start of the case that convicted him of appropriating the paper money factory through figureheads.
He added in another section of the report: “Of having followed Scioli after of Cristina’s government it would have been something elseIt could have been built on what was built and not tear everything down to start with a reverse change. ”He was referring to the country, not its legal vicissitudes.
The former vice president – currently under house arrest – thus denounced that “the system of administration of Justice in Argentina it worked tight by the Executive Power“and he insisted with an example of the scene of his arrest, which was then criticized.
“They went to look for me at my house and they took me out with a helmet and vest and I had always appeared in court, even though I was vice president. If they had told me: ‘Come to Comodoro Py, be detained’, I would have done the bag and went. You didn’t need all that show, “said the economist.
He added: “It was an operation of the government (of Macri) even to filter the photos. It looked like a hunting trophy how they took those photos. “
Boudou arrived this Tuesday at two thirds of compliance of his conviction for corruption.
This Wednesday the former vice will have an interview with him interdisciplinary team of Criminal Execution and between 24 and 48 hours later the document will be drawn up on the basis of which it will be decided whether to grant the defense request, which requested Boudou’s release.
What does probation entail? In the first place, they must remove the electronic ankle brace with which he is monitored since April 2020 and which stipulated the circulation radius. Thereafter, the former vice may circulate freely without any restriction.
Last Thursday, Room IV of the Cassation Chamber, with the vote of judges Mariano Borinsky and Ángela Ledesma -with the dissent of Javier Carbajo-, reduced the deadlines for compliance with the sentence that weighs on Boudou for another month.
Amado Boudou also gave a seminar at the UBA on “lawfare”. For courses he reduced his penalty for corruption.
Boudou got his sentence reduced by 10 months with his participation in different courses on electricity, organization of events and philosophy.
Friendly fire for Martín Guzmán
Former strongman of the numbers in the time of Cristina president, Boudou praised the debt restructuring led by the management of Alberto Fernández, but was very critical of the strategy of the Ministry of Economy – led by Martín Guzmán – to contain inflation.

“On the inflation issue is not getting a good response the Ministry of Economy. The President said it before taking office: wages have to beat inflation, “conceded the economist, too.
But then it was hard on Guzmán, with the deference of not naming it: “I think in Economics they are lending too much attention to issues related to the IMF and very little to the daily life of Argentines, which in Argentina is hunchbacked because the minister is always a reference to where we are going. “
In June, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) registered a rise of 3.2% and accumulated a variation of 25.3% in the first six months of the year, reported the National Institute of Statistics and Censuses (INDEC).
Last month’s data reflects a slowdown compared to May, when inflation had been 3.3%. It is also the lowest indicator since November last year. However, in the year-on-year variation, the 50.2% increase results the highest level since February last year.
