Argentina: Ex-VP Boudou, jailed for corruption offences, granted house arrest

Former vice-president Amado Boudou, currently serving a prison sentence on corruption offences, has been released from jail and ordered to serve out his term under house arrest.

A court on Monday granted house arrest to Boudou, who was vice-president during the second presidential term of Cristina Fernández de Kirchner from 2011 to 2015 after having been her economy minister (2009-2011).

Boudou has been serving a 70-month prison sentence for the irregular acquisition of a money-printing company.
