In its first week following the winter break, Argentina's central courthouse Comodoro Py was awash with lawyers and journalists on Tuesday.
A criminal tribunal will rule today on the so-called Ciccone case, while several disgraced former government officials parade through the hallways of the Comorodo Py to face up to corruption allegations.
The former driver at the centre of an ongoing scandal surrounding an alleged graft ring involving high-ranking officials in the former Cristina Fernández de Kirchner administrations, Oscar Centero, appeared in Comodoro Py today. He is one of a handful of people tied to the alleged ring that will appear in court this week. Former Planning Minister Julio de Vido will testify Friday while Senator Fernández de Kirchner is scheduled to appear in court next Monday.
Meanwhile, CFK's former vice-president Amado Boudou faces arrest and jail this afternoon if the court rules against him in the trial involving his alleged participation in the fraudulent acquisition of Ciccone Calcografica, the only facility in Argentina with the capacity to print legal tender, in 2012.
