As the days go by and the verdict in the trial for the murder of Lucio Dupuy (5) for which his mother is accused Magali Esposito Valenti and your partner Abigail Peace Details of the State’s responsibilities are becoming known, to say the least striking. Now, the family found out that after the death of the baby more than 400 admissions were registered to his medical recordloaded in the systems of the Ministry of Health of The Pampa.

The data was confirmed to PROFILE by the Dupuy family lawyer, Jose Mario Aguerridowho explained that they obtained the information from a research carried out by the Office of the Administrative Investigations Prosecutor (FIA).

They also did not answer whether an explanation or public pronouncement is planned.
