They request the dismissal
The defense of the young man, exercised by the lawyer Silvia Moya, has appealed the indictment of his client and requests the free dismissal of the proceedings against him “as there are no reasonable indications of criminality.” Thus, they attribute the death of the deceased to a “reprehensible and little diligent attitude” of the latter. “Regardless of the existence of a struggle between the two, death was caused by his unfortunate state of health and by his refusal to undergo radiological tests,” they argue while maintaining that if the case continues against his sponsor, it is due to “the need to find culprits”.
In any case, according to the lawyer, “said struggle between the two was aimed at avoiding the injuries that LT was causing to the mother of my client. The now deceased grabbed her tightly by the neck with the intention of undermining her physical integrity, and the intention It was my client’s duty to mediate to prevent it, but never to cause him any injury. ”
