Rívolo gave the impulse thus formally initiated a criminal case from journalistic investigations, which revealed the link between Boudou and entrepreneurs who acquired Ciccone broken and in order to access semicerteza a business of $ 50 million, from the printing of banknotes of $ 100.
The investigation of the cause, the court Rafecas Daniel, was delegated to the prosecutor, which provided the first steps. “Money laundering and negotiations incompatible with the civil service is the qualification attempt in light of the facts in the record,” wrote Rívolo to order the test measures.
This is true, judicial sources said La Nacion, because trying to determine if the vice president was interested in defining the lifting of the bankruptcy of Ciccone and establish where they came from the funds to do so, because in principle was provided by people they would not have the economic capacity for that.
AFIP had asked him to justice in commercial bankruptcy after accumulating debts Ciccone more than 240 million pesos. The bankruptcy was decreed July 15, 2010. However, the AFIP retraced his steps in the weeks that followed and called for the lifting of the bankruptcy, while a trading partner Boudou, lawyer José María Núñez Carmona, contacted creditors of the former Ciccone. We anticipated that with the help of then Finance Minister would obtain new contracts, according to people aware of the steps.
It was a friend of Mar del Plata Boudou, lawyer Alejandro Vandenbroele, acting on behalf of the firm, The Old Fund SA, the player who would take care of Ciccone.
Like Russian dolls, which are placed one inside the other, The Old Fund SA is controlled by the Dutch CV Land International Investments, which in turn is controlled by two companies based in Geneva, Switzerland.
Both the Dutch fund as Swiss companies are dissolved in the business records collated by the NATION. And as the legal representative of the background figure Land Charles Schneider, a retiree who takes the credit at least after 27 years in the merchant navy and when he consulted the NATION, stated that he knew what it was all about.
The Vandenbroele woman, Laura Munoz, said publicly that her husband is “the front man Boudou.” The testimony of the lady, who is divorcing her husband, could be achieved by the statutory prohibition applies to testify against a spouse, if the offense does not affect the employee. However, there is case law that means that this story would be acceptable as a first notice of the alleged offense.
The former Ciccone, now with new owners, was responsible for printing ballots for Victory Front for the primary election last August and received technical support from Mint for printing 100 bills pesos, about 50 million. This business was cut short because the scandal broke.
One of the central bank officials who have supported the participation of the business Ciccone was the general manager Benigno Velez, now removed from office in a decision that notified the president of the organization, Mercedes Marco del Pont.

Here is located the record of the bankruptcy of Ciccone. The judge showed a total readiness to give full access to the event, which incidentally is in the Court of Appeals. In that case are narrated step by step the contributions of capital and movement of those close to the vice president.
