Prosecutor Silvana Russi asked to bring to trial the cause for which he is detained Irineo Humberto Garzón Martínez, the businessman accused of sexually abusing an 18-year-old Venezuelan girl in a local in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Balvanera.

The investigation was assisted by the General Directorate of Accompaniment, Guidance and Protection of Victims (DOVIC) of the Attorney General’s Office and the Office of Domestic Violence (OVD) of the Supreme Court.

The attack occurred on January 23 inside a clothing store in Once. According to the complaint, the young woman approached the premises of Calle Paso 693 after coordinating a job interview with Garzón Martínez on Facebook. That day, the merchant explained, he had to stay to work “on a test basis”.

During that same day, the defendant locked the blinds and the doors, for which the young woman sent a message to her mother “telling her she was afraid.”

“At no time did he realize that he had used the cell phone. He went to where he was, in the box, and offered me vodka,” the complainant said. She replied that she did not drink alcohol and that, furthermore, if she did, she would have problems with her mother.

Minutes before the man closed doors and shutters, some clients had entered the shop. “The only thing I told her is that I was going to drink water, but that I was going to drink it from a filter. I got up, attended to the clients, and when I returned I had the water there. It was very hot. I was so into the subject of to do it well to stay at work that I did not realize that he had already served me the water, “said the victim.

After taking the content offered by the accused, he felt his hands go numb. He dialed the last number he had contacted on his cell phone, that of his sister, who answered him although the young woman could not answer. She felt that she was falling asleep, that she was dizzy. When he woke up, Garzón Martínez was already putting his pants on. “From there I imagine that I went back to sleep. I woke up again in front of the police,” he recalled.

For prosecutor Russi, head of the National Criminal and Correctional Prosecutor 41, the accused took advantage of the fact that the victim was confused and defenseless to undress her and sexually abuse her, which caused injuries. For this reason, he asked Judge Karina Zuconni, of the same jurisdiction, to raise to oral and public trial the investigation carried out against Irineo Humberto Garzón Martínez for the crime of “sexual abuse aggravated by his commission with carnal access.”

As reported by www.fiscales.gob.ar, Russi considered the existence of a “Pattern of conduct and premeditation of the accused, which specially selected vulnerable people, very young women, mostly of foreign nationality and without family ties in the country, who captured via the Internet under the pretext of offering them work, taking advantage of their economic needs “.

In addition, the prosecution took into account that the young woman was intoxicated with ethanol, which causes “the absence of consent of the victim and of their ability to self-determine with respect to the use of their own body in the sexual sphere.”

Garzón Martínez, who denied the charges before the Justice and accused the complainant of being a liar, was arrested on February 4 in a house in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Mataderos, after Chamber I of the Crime Chamber revoked the release granted by the judge of first instance. A week later, the National Chamber of Criminal and Correctional Appeals decided that he continue with preventive detention.
