The defense of former vice president Amado Boudou confirmed that he will appeal the resolution signed by the judge Daniel Obligado, who revoked his house arrest, following the ruling of the Supreme Court that confirmed his sentence to five years and ten months in jail for the Ciccone case.
“They revoked Boudou’s house arrest without arguments,” said Boudou’s lawyer, Graciana Peñafort, in statements to The Uncover Radio, considering that “Boudou’s is clearly the lawfare that continues to operate “.
In addition, Peñafort, who also serves as director of Legal Affairs in the Senate, where she watches over the signing of Cristina Kirchner, highlighted: “The Obligado judge is the last link in a chain that begins with the Court. The Court refused to open the Boudou case without talking about the espionage that lawyers suffered, without talking about the payment of the hotel to [Alejandro] Vandenbroele “.
Boudou has been under house arrest since last April, when Obligado ordered it and ordered him to be checked with an electronic ankle brace. In early December, the Supreme Court of Justice upheld its sentence. Now, the defense has 10 days to file its appeal.
The prosecutors Marcelo colombo and Guillermina Garcia Padin they asked that Boudou return to jail to serve his sentence.
Peñafort was not the only one who questioned Justice about the former vice president’s situation. In dialogue with the same station, the Buenos Aires legislator and presidential advisor Leandro santoro He referred to the revocation of Boudou’s house arrest and said: “With Amado, the attempt by a sector of the Judiciary to mark the playing field for politics is clear.”
“Maybe Boudou’s is a way of answering Cristina what she said in La Plata: that the lawfare it is to condition current officials. The Amado thing is a terrible provocation, “added Santoro.
He also criticized the Judicial Power, the national deputy Hugo Yasky, who said: “We need more deputies, more senators, more social mobilization to strengthen the power of our people in the fight against that dark apparatus that is the Judicial Power.”
“He lawfare it is an issue that has to concern us all. It is a pending debt of democracy, for me what is happening with Boudou is aberrant. They are judges who defend the interests of a concentrated sector, “Yasky added.
Boudou himself spoke yesterday about the ruling that harmed him and said: “It is an act of cruelty [el fallo]. I am in some sense an anecdote. The main political victim is Cristina. “
