EX Vice President of Argentina, Amado Boudou jailed for corruption (WHEN WILL OUR CORRUPT ONES START GETTING JAIL TERMS)



Argentina’s former Vice President Amado Boudou was sentenced on Tuesday to five years and 10 months in prison for “bribery and business dealings incompatible with public service.” 

Boudou, who served from 2011 to 2015 alongside then President Cristina Fernandez, was also barred for life from holding public office and fined 90,000 pesos (3,214 U.S. dollars). He was convicted by a federal criminal court in relation to the so-called Ciccone Case, which alleged he profited from awarding government contracts to a company called Ciccone Printing, the only private company enabled to print money apart from the state mint. 



 “Politicians who follow the path of the powerful, walk without problems. Politicians who decide to transform reality are persecuted, at first by the media and then by the legal system,” said Boudou.

The head of the national anti-corruption agency, Laura Alonso, hailed the “historic trial,” saying “for the first time in Argentina a vice president has been convicted. The judicial branch is free to punish corruption,” she added.
