BUENOS AIRES — An Argentine judge has filed corruption charges against the country’s vice president in a case linked to his time as finance minister, court sources said late Friday.

Amado Boudou is the first Argentine vice president ever to face such charges while in office. President Cristina Kirchner’s second in command is currently traveling in Cuba and set to return home next week.
