“We started investigating them from a telephone listening,” a source of the investigation confirmed to Infobae.
Alvarez testified on Monday in the case and was arrested at the request of a request from prosecutor Emilio Guerberoff.
In addition to being an important unionist, the detainee is the uncle of Adrián Álvarez, one of those who had been filmed by the airport security cameras when the boxes with cocaine were uploaded to the plane’s hold.
It is suspected that the drug arrived at the airport in that person’s truck, which managed to circumvent all controls.
His uncle declared today and admitted his participation although he would have said he did not know what was stored in the shed.
“The new detainee works at the Andes airline, which operates in the north of the country and has deposits in Ezeiza,” a judicial source warned.
As soon as the detention was transcended, the guild leading Cirielli decided to suspend him and issued a statement in which he informed that he had already asked for a license, probably knowing that his situation was compromised.
The plane, which was loaded with parcels and with almost fifty race and polo horses that had Singapore as their final destination, had arrived at 10.45 from San Pablo (Brazil) and had planned to make a stopover in Quito (Ecuador) before to reach its final destination, which was the city of Amsterdam.
Another of the detainees, Victor Gil, who had also been filmed climbing the boxes with the drug, directly accused his partner Adrián Álvarez, 33.
“I have known him for ten years and I didn’t expect him to do this, not only to me but to my source of work, and not only to me but also to all my colleagues (…) I feel used in a terrible way, it’s like If it were a toilet paper that you wipe your ass and throws you only as a benefit from it. That guy does not deserve to step on Earth, he has to be on the moon, I never met such a bad person in life,” Gil said in his inquiry.
“It is not just a case of infidelity of their dependents. Martinair did not establish and exercise suitable measures to ensure the safety of its operation and, in particular, the plane. The video and the photographs of the moment when the boxes get on the plane are illustrative. There is no one visible in the surroundings. The runway had been converted into a truly liberated area, and the plane drifting,” he said.
At the end of January, López Biscayart had also ordered the release of six other detainees in the case: they were the flight crew and the other operators.
