Boudou assured that in his administration he could have committed "mistakes but not crimes".

Politics and Economics
Former Vice President Amado Boudou said today that during his term he may have "committed mistakes, but not crimes" and criticized the judiciary for considering that "the government puts and takes out judges and says that sentences have to be handed down. Boudou, who was released on Thursday after paying bail in the case for the purchase of the former Ciccone Calcográfica, maintained his innocence and said that he did not commit any crimes during his time with Anses, the Ministry of Economy or as vice-president accompanying Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. In statements to Radio 10, he said: "In Argentina there is no longer a system of justice, but a system of administration of laws, which is used with the sense that marks someone who is behind many judges. "There has not been in the history of Argentine democracy a case of interference in the Judicial Power and the rupture of the division of powers as strong as in this government, something that was obvious when the president (Mauricio Macri) tried to appoint by decree two Supreme Court judges," argued the former vice-president Kirchnerista who was sentenced to 5 years and 10 months in prison in the Ciccone case. After spending almost four months in detention at the Ezeiza Federal Penitentiary Complex, Boudou insisted that "the government removes, puts, removes judges and says the sentences they have to pronounce. "That of disturbing the investigation is a phrase that was invented for pretrial detention," he added. In the Ciccone case, Boudou was sentenced last August to five years and ten months in prison when he was found "criminally responsible for the crimes of passive bribery and negotiations incompatible with public service. However, when consulted about his possible responsibility in the cases of alleged corruption against him, he said he was "innocent" and argued that in his time in public administration he could have "committed mistakes but not crimes".
