Domestic Espionage Charges
In December 2011, Godoy retired upon being charged with domestic espionage against politicians, civic activists, and human rights organizations. According to the accusation, Godoy is culpable because the practice was widespread and continuous across the Navy. Article 248 of the Argentine Penal Code forbids military intelligence agencies from investigating citizens, and from operating within the domestic sphere. As of August 2012, Godoy has been convicted and is awaiting sentencing.
