After they met the identities of the 48 owners of the debit cards that Julio “Chocolate” Rigau used at the time of his arrest in a bank branch in the center of La Plata, the prosecutor’s office in the case hopes that the Buenos Aires Court of Cassation will reopen the case in order to clarify the mechanism with which the crimes were concocted. maneuvers classified, in principle, as scams.
So far only 16 of the alleged employees of the provincial Legislature have declared, among whom are a member of a “Celeste” party who knew how to be an ally of Javier Milei and an employee of the municipality of La Plata, apparently a relative of the main suspect.
The La Plata prosecutor’s office No. 2 stopped its investigation last Thursday when the resolution of the La Plata appeals court was announced, which annulled the evidence in the case and released the Massista leader, from whom a bag with more than $1,200 had been seized. 000 and the 48 plastics mentioned. Until then, prosecutor Betina Lacky was trying to investigate the origin of the maneuvers that she, in principle, decided to classify as “repeated fraud” because, apparently, they occurred on several occasions.
It is that from the statement of the young Ezequiel Tocci in UFI No. 2, it was possible to verify that he I had no knowledge of plastic that bore his name, from which money was withdrawn since last January. The testimony of the young flower grower was dissonant with the other alleged employees who, as it was learned, did not compromise the procedural situation of “Chocolate”. In this sense, they assured that they gave him their cards “voluntarily” so that he could do them the favor of withdrawing their salary. “They said it proudly,” a judicial source consulted is still surprised.
According to what was revealed from court sources, the cards found in Rigau’s possession that September 9 were issued in the names of the following members who, in theory, were in the provincial lower house: Marisol Correa; Flavia Antonella Di Rosa,; Daniel Mederos; María Eugenia Rodríguez; Damián Lucero; Oscar Vrcic; Ramon Sosa; Maximiliano Rigau; Paula Valdata; Carlos Ravetllat; Antonio Rodríguez; Graciela Anivarro; Patricio Prieto; Maroni, Belén Sheila; Raúl Boragina; Mabel Alvear; Ricardo Sánchez; Cecilia Raimondo; Aldana Rodríguez; Arturo Falcon Ramírez and Diego Berón. Enzo Plana appears on the same list; María Cecilia D’Ovidio; Rosana Silvia Delgado; Solange Plana; Juan Vallejos; Ramon Silva; Diego Koster; Brenda Caro; Raúl Folone; Ramiro Pascual; Ruben Mendivil; Silvia Marcela Pérez; Gerardo Rigau; Lilia Malmaceda; Matías Pecile; Alvaro Agra; Maria Amanda Albino; Juan Martín Méndez; José Da Ponte; Micheli Pearl; Monica Caberta; Cristian Rigau; Ernesto Crivaro; Juan José Tocci; María Cristina Degollada; Ezequiel Tocci; Lourdes Degollada.
Not all members of this payroll would have the provincial parliament as their only employer. Such is the case of Cristian Osvaldo Rigau, who would maintain a relationship with the accused, who according to his work history He works as an employee of the Municipality of La Plata. Mónica Patricia Caberta, meanwhile, is linked to the Celeste Party (ProVida) which, Until the closing of lists on June 24, he knew how to play with the libertarian party.
According to what prosecutor Lacky was able to reconstruct, Rigau’s withdrawals in the name of supposed legislative employees had occurred for “a long time.” As was said, the card of the only witness that, until now, did not follow the “corporate script” of the rest of his supposed colleagues had been used since last January.
Until now there is no evidence that 3 of the 48 are deceased, as had been reported.
The truth is that the investigation today is at a standstill pending the appeal of prosecutor Héctor Vogliolo before the Buenos Aires Court of Cassation, a procedure whose deadline is mid-October.
The national deputy Alberto Assef, who has just denounced the La Plata chambermaids who freed “Chocolate” from “protecting the mafia from the provincial Legislature”, estimated before this newspaper that “the appeal court” is going to have to give him the appeal” to the prosecutor for what he considered “virtuous pressure from a society scandalized by these events that were discovered red-handed,” for which he predicted a prompt restart of the investigation.
