Argentine Ex-VP on Trial for Falsifying Vehicle Purchase Papers

BUENOS AIRES – The Argentine court system on Monday began hearing oral arguments in a case involving alleged irregularities committed by former Vice President Amado Boudou in purchasing an automobile, court sources reported.

Three magistrates – Gabriel Eduardo Vega, Jose Antonio Michilini and Adrian Grunberg – will rule on the charge of “making false statements” filed against former vice president, who served as economy minister from 2009-2011 and as VP from 2011-2015, both during the administration of Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner.

Among the accused are also Boudou’s former wife, Agustina Seguin, as a “material participant” in the alleged crime; as well as agents Andres Soto and Rodolfo Basimiani, as coauthors of the crime; along with the head of an automotive registry firm, Maria Graciela Taboada, according to the Judicial Information Center.

The case, being prosecuted by Stella Maris Scandura, involves the alleged 2003 counterfeiting of registration papers for a Honda CRX that were in Boudou’s name.

In August 2014, federal Judge Claudio Bonadio indicted Boudou “for the crime of falsifying a public document” and four months later the case was sent to court.

According to the charges, Boudou “registered (the vehicle) in his name” by “falsifying” the registration document, specifically by listing an address that did not belong to him.

Boudou is also facing two other court cases, one of them regarding bribery and negotiations incompatible with his office in the transfer of the Ciccone mint, which prints Argentina’s currency, when he headed the Economy Ministry, and the other concerning fraudulent administration in the purchase of luxury automobiles.
