CTEP militant Rodolfo Orellana, killed during an attempt to take land at Ciudad Evita, a Buenos Aires party in La Matanza, was shot in the back. So confirmed today by the Buenos Aires Attorney General, Julio Conte Grand, and by the Minister of Security, Cristian Ritondo.
Orellana, 36, was killed yesterday at 6 am on the property located on Route 4 and Riccheri Highway in the western suburbs amidst a row between two groups who wanted to take the land. which is added to the intervention of the security forces.
"We have a preliminary autopsy that determines the entrance of a firearm projectile into the blade, with an exit hole in the facial area at the height of the nose," the prosecutor described in dialogue with the C5N.
Yesterday, the Buenos Aires Ministry of Security announced that Orellana had died as the cause of an injury. According to the report of the professionals who examined the body in the hospital, the victim had no entrance or exit hole caused by a bullet. There was evidence that he had two wounds: one superficial on the shoulder and the other on the head, generated by a pointed object.
The hypothesis that yesterday dealt in La Plata held that Orellana had died in a fight between two groups who were fighting the land taken this morning.
However, Conte Grand and Ritondo clarified today, based on the autopsy, that the death was caused by the impact of a bullet on Orellana's back.
The prosecutor added that it can not be determined what type of weapon was used in the attack, since "the projectile did not remain in the physical cavity and the caliber would be difficult to determine."
However, to clarify, forensic work in the final autopsy will attempt to draw a profile of the weapon, "depending on the diameter of the inlet and outlet orifices and the internal work inside the person's cavity."
Conte Grand also specified that the intervention was given to the Internal Affairs of the province of Buenos Aires to hand over the list of Buenos Aires police officers who were assigned to guard the premises and who had no weapons, besides money from nearby commissaries. that when the incidents began, they went to "at least two patrol cars" to the spot.
"In principle, it will be verified that all the troops that were in the place to guarantee the security of the shot and possible fights, were carrying rubber bullets, but when the situation left, reinforcements began to appear and we had to verify the arms that they carried" , Contei Grand.
Meanwhile, Ritondo said that if it is proven that the police in the province had some responsibility in the death of Orellana "they will be sanctioned."
The minister recalled that the first information obtained after the fact, as reported by the hospital where Orellana arrived, was that the militant had a puncture wound, which was later discarded with the preliminary result of the autopsy.
Ritondo said that there were two possibilities: first, that the bullet was fired during the confrontation between two sectors that dispute the usurpation and purchase of that land and, secondly, that it was a bad police action. "In both cases, we will collaborate so that the truth is known, because the death of anyone in the province of Buenos Aires is regrettable," he concluded.
After the crime, members of social movements, human rights organizations and political leaders accused the security forces and repudiated the alleged police attack.
