At dawn on New Years in the city of At payment, the provincial deputy of Together for Change Carolina Píparo and her husband, Juan Ignacio Buzali, arrived at the Police Station on 53rd streets between 9 and 10, after having run over two motorcyclists with his car which they mistook for the motochorros who had previously assaulted the deputy at 2 am in the house of her in-laws.
The testimonies feed the suspicion of the defense, which points out that the couple was drunk in the early hours of January 1, when they would have chased and run over Luis Levalle (21) e Ivan Coronel (17), and they escaped without providing assistance. However, the Buenos Aires legislator must declare today, Wednesday, January 6, before the prosecutor and relate what happened.
Martin de VargasLevalle’s lawyer, on Tuesday asked the Justice to raid the police station where the marriage went “so that genetic traces are preserved.” The lawyer explained that after hitting the motorcycle on which the young people were traveling, Píparo and her husband went to the 1st Police Station. of the Buenos Aires capital where “The police officers saw them vomiting and smelling strongly of alcohol.”

In turn, De Vargas insisted that “every day the hypothesis that it was attempted homicide“, and insisted that the legislator and her husband confused Levalle and the teenager who accompanied him on the motorcycle” with jets and attacked them for that. “
He also noted that “the presence of the Secretary of Security of the Municipality, Darius Ganduglia, it was to cover up the crimes committed by Buzali, “adding that Píparo and her husband”wanted to form in public opinion something that was not“On the other hand, he questioned that the defense attorney for the marriage, Fernando Mocking, minimize the fact because they are minor injuries and considered that “there must be justice for the poor”.
Píparo, who in addition to being a deputy is secretary of Victim Assistance and Gender Policies of the Municipality of La Plata, described the episode as an “accident”, although He avoided explaining why they didn’t stop providing assistance. “My assistant had nothing to do with the incident. The boys were intentionally rammed. Buzali accelerated behind them to ram them. It is an attempted murder,” said De Vargas.
Likewise, the defense attorney stated that they challenged the magistrate Marcela Garmendia for being the mother of a member of the municipal cabinet and maintained that “This is a fight between unequal parties: humble people on the one hand and, on the other, the best lawyer, a part with political contacts and judges with relatives in the same party “.
In rejecting the claim against him, Garmendia argued that his son is not linked to the cause and that “supposing that the mere fact of sharing functions in the same management generates, for that reason alone, an interest in the future of a certain process, without deepening or justifying what the relationship or the concrete action would be, fails to demonstrate this assumption interest that supports the challenge hypothesis “.
Although the lawyers of the young men attacked requested the arrest of Buzali on the grounds that he tried to commit a double homicide, the decision is now in the hands of Judge Garmendia.
Meanwhile, the La Plata prosecutor Maria Eugenia Lorenzo continues to take testimonial statements and analyze security camera images to determine if the legislator’s husband should be charged in the case.
