Belsunce case: attorney asks imprisonment for two victim's relatives

The court case investigating the concealment of María Marta García Belsunce’s murder resumed on Monday with prosecutor Laura Syseskind asking for six and five years of imprisonment for the victim's brother-in-law Guillermo Bártoli, and the victim's step brother John Hurtig respectively; and the full acquittal of masseur Beatriz Michelini.

Attorneys Laura Syseskind, Leornardo Loiterstein, and Daniel Márquez presented this morning their explanatory preambles and allegations on the case to judges of the San Isidro Criminal Court N°1, and accused suspects Bártoli and Hurtig of concealing the murder of García Belsunce and being part of a family cover-up operation.

Likewise, Syseskind asked for the full acquittal of masseur Michelini as it couldn't be determined whther Michelini knew that the victim had been murdered when she was asked by the family members to help cleaning the crime scene as she was told that García Belsunce had had a domestic accident in the shower.

The accused of concealing the crime also include the victim’s brother Horacio García Belsunce, Doctor Juan Gauvry Gordon, and the victim’s neighbour Sergio Binello.

Belsunce, a sociologist and philantropist, was shot dead in her country club residence in Northwestern Greater Buenos Aires district of Pilar in October 2002.   

Furthermore, the attorney could ask for the immediate detention in order to avoid any flee attempts.   

After listening to all prosecutors, the judges will ask for intermission until Wednesday when defence counsellors will have their chance to present their allegations.
