Argentina's democracy put to test as vice-president testifies in criminal corruption case

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, June 9, 2014 9:20 AM EDT

Argentina's democracy is being put to the test as the vice president prepares to testify in a criminal corruption probe.

Amado Boudou is accused of abusing his powers by using shell companies and secret middlemen to gain control of the company that prints the nation's currency.

Boudou has always denied involvement despite ample evidence linking him to other defendants that surfaced in investigative reports by Argentina's newspapers.

Now Boudou must answer questions in a closed-door court session Monday with the prosecutor and federal judge Ariel Lijo.

The judge rejected Boudou's request to broadcast his testimony on live TV, saying that would violate the secrecy needed to avoid shaping the testimony of other witnesses.

But Boudou is insisting on making his own audiovisual record, testing the nation's separation of powers.
