Fernando ‘El Flaco’ Solórzano, an old acquaintance on television, also spoke out about the death of DJ Valentina Trespalacios, a case around which the public debate in the country has revolved in the last week, even more so after the hearing for charges against charges against John Poulos, ex-partner and alleged murderer of the Colombian.
The renowned actor questioned the profession of lawyers who defend criminals knowing that they are guilty, although without making direct reference to the legal representative of the American citizen.
“About the alleged murderer of the DJ and all the cases of corruption of some Colombian politicians, I find the profession of lawyers meaningless. How can we defend someone we know is guilty?” The social communicator, who recently participated in the production, wrote on Twitter. The queen of the south
But Skinny Solórzano, as he is also known in the acting world, did not stop there. According to him, there are lawyers who only seek errors for the benefit of their defendants, even though they are aware of their guilt.
“This eagerness to look for an error in the process to benefit a bandit is the least ethical thing that can exist. Postponing trials, postponing them with all possible excuses so that the culprit is favored is the result of an aberrant profession. Could it be that these types of lawyers are not ashamed of their conduct? ”, He added.
As expected, there were those who questioned Fernando Solórzano for his position on those who practice as lawyers. “I hope you never need one. Judicial guarantees and due process in general are for everyone and you don’t know when you’re going to need to implore them,” a follower told the actor.
It is worth remembering that the postponement of the hearing against John Poulos, captured in Panama, from where he was extradited to Colombia to render an account to justice, It was because his lawyer requested it, arguing difficulties in the translation.
“The prosecutor told us a story, but that story we need to accommodate the alleged criminal that contemplates the crime of femicide. I say this, your honor, because in different pronouncements the Supreme Court of Justice has called the attention of different prosecutors that in the imputation of charges they must mention legally relevant facts,” said John Poulos’s lawyer.
The hearing will continue on Tuesday, January 31.
John Poulos, the main suspect in the death of the young DJ Valentina Trespalacios, pleaded not guilty before a guarantee control judge. The investigation, by the authorities, will continue and the hearing will resume next Tuesday the 31st of the same month. “I am aware of my decision and I do not accept the charges”, was what the man expressed.
The man, of American origin, will continue to be investigated by the crime of aggravated femicide and concealment of probative material. It is noteworthy that Valentina Trespalacios was found lifeless by a street inhabitant on Sunday, January 22, in a garbage container in the town of Fontibón, in Bogotá.
The hearing lasted a total of five hours and there was a simultaneous translation of the interventions of each of the parties, since the accused does not speak Spanish. Despite having assured that he did not commit the crimes, the Attorney General’s Office will continue to work on the probative material that indicates that Poulos did murder Valentina Trespalacios.
“You, Mr. Poulos, took the life of Mrs. Valentina Trespalacios as a result of a jealousy process, based on a permanent obsession with respect to the sentimental relationship sustained with her. To the point of conceiving it as a personal object”pointed out – at the hearing – the prosecutor in charge of the case.
Key testimony before the Prosecutor’s Office: “He asked him for 1,000 dollars”
WEEK He recently learned exclusively that John Poulos, as the victim’s boyfriend and main suspect in his death was identified, had planned the crime for a long time.
The investigators of the case emphasized in this medium that the man would have acted alone and that he had no accomplices. However, they assured that he hired a private detective to follow the well-known DJ because he suspected that she was unfaithful.
According to the Attorney General’s Office, the man he paid to stalk the young woman discovered that she went on an apparently romantic trip to Aruba with another subject, for which he returned to Bogotá to confront her.
One of Valentina’s best friends also confirmed to the investigative body that the young woman was with another man on the Caribbean island. She even indicated that they were romantically involved.
“She told me that she had met John online a year ago. The guy sent him money every week through a company. I saw their relationship very well, very normal. I learned that he came to Colombia, according to that, to live with her; that was told to me by her ‘lover’, Santiago. The apartment John rented came furnished.” initially stated.
Then he specified: “John was going to make a deposit of $1,000, but Valentina had gone to Aruba with Santiago. She didn’t know how to make John not realize she was there. So, Valentina told her that he had a gig somewhere else, and that’s when she told him that he needed the money (1,000 dollars) and to send it to me, that’s when John, through the MoneyGram exchange house, sent it to me”.
