Gaston Maranothe lawyer defending Gabriel Carrizo in the case that investigates the attempted assassination of Vice President Cristina Kirchner, he made a publication on his social networks in which he clarifies several points about his role, such as, for example, the financing of his services, his alleged political ties and how he came to the cause, among other things. His defendant is designated as the leader of the “band of the copitos”, where they worked Fernando Sabag Montiel and Brenda Uliartewho were prosecuted with preventive detention as co-authors of the attack.
The lawyer explained that he came to the case on the recommendation of a colleague of his who could not take charge of Carrizo’s defense. “Who pays you? Due to the economic situation of Carrizo, I decided to take the cause pro-bono, that is, for the collection of the legal minimum. Eventually Carrizo or whoever is sentenced for costs at the end of the process will pay me, “he added in a series of plaques that he posted on his Instagram account.
“Why take a ‘free’ cause? This case represents an enormous professional challenge. It is a cause with great public and media significance, which makes it possible for my work and the way in which I carry it out to be known. As a teacher I can transmit my passion for exercise to a few students per year, in a cause like this, our task can reach thousands of people. You also take up a cause like this when you know that your participation can make a difference in seeing justice done,” he added.
Elsewhere, he ruled out that his entry into the cause is due to the influence of Javier Milei, Ramiro Marra, Ignacio Torres, referents of the PRO or the CIA and added: “Gabriel Nicolás Carrizo put me in this cause. I have no links with the PRO or with any other political space”.
“What is the role of Brenda Salva and Fernando Sicilia in the case? Brenda has been working with me for many years, she started as a student and now as a professional. Fernando, unlike Brenda, who worked in my office, has his own studio and we handle some cases together. Fernando has no involvement in this case. He only appears on the ‘sheet’ of ‘authorizes’ of the judicial writings”, expressed Marano.
At the end of his statement, the lawyer stated: “When a person enters my office, I do not ask him what his political inclination is, but rather which of his rights is being violated. And I’m going to defend her.”
Marano, who also defends Carrizo and coincidentally worked as an advisor to the Permanent Bicameral Commission for the Oversight of Intelligence Organizations and Activities, and was recommended to work there by Ignacio Torres, a national senator from the PRO.
After the link came to light, Senator Torres took distance and assured that he had been presented to the upper house as a specialist in geopolitical and intelligence issues. In addition, he denounced that they wanted to involve him in “a crude operation” since the advisors involved have to be approved by consensus. He finally asked the commission authorities to release Marano.
When Carrizo was arrested, Marano had assured the press that his client had no link in the attack against the former president but was only the supplier of the cotton candy they sold. Fernando Sabag Montiel and Brenda Uliartewho were prosecuted with preventive detention as co-authors of the attack.
Along the same lines, Brenda Salva assured in an interview with AM990 that Carrizo only has a “strictly commercial” relationship with Sabag Montiel and Uliarte. “A neighbor gave Gabriel the machine to make sugar flakes and he gave work to people who needed it. That way he met Fernando and Brenda at a party”.
