BUENOS AIRES - Argentine investigators raided an apartment owned by Vice President Amado Boudou on Wednesday as part of a court probe into possible influence peddling by the country's second-in-command, a judicial source said.

The investigation centers on whether Boudou helped printing company Ciccone Calcografica get out of bankruptcy in 2010 and later steered a contract to its new owners to print money.

Boudou served as Argentina's economy minister for more than two years before he took office as vice president in December. He has denied any link to the printing company, which now operates under the name Compania de Valores Sudamericana.
