They also talked about what my role is in the case in which the execrable attack against Cristina Fernández de Kirchner is being investigated”, he began by saying.

“I am going to answer the questions that have kept the press awake in recent days,” he said. And he addressed the first question: How do I get to this cause?

“Through the reference of a colleague who decided not to take the representation because he did not have the amount of work hours that this defense required. And he proposed to Carrizo’s family to contact me, which they did “Marano replied.

On who pays him, he clarified: “Due to Carrizo’s economic situation, I decided to take the cause ‘pro-bono’, that is, for the minimum charge. Eventually, Carrizo or whoever is sentenced for costs at the end of the process will pay me.

“This case represents an enormous professional challenge,” he added. 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. A cause like this is also taken up when one knows that it can make a difference.”
