It wasn’t just any day. Sergio Denis was preparing to sing on the night of March 11, 2019. Red jacket, white pants and a crowd that cheered for him. He toured the Mercedes Sosa theater in Tucumán and went to greet the fans who were in their seats, upon returning to his place, he stepped on the ladder that joined the stalls with the stage and fell into the orchestra pit, about three meters deep. height. The festive atmosphere is over. He was immediately hospitalized in serious condition and never woke up.

Let us remember that, unfortunately, although Héctor Omar Hoffmann, as his real name was, passed away on May 15, 2020, without a doubt, it was the accident that occurred the previous year that cost him his life. Now, three years after his fall, his children, Barbara, Victoria and Federico, believe that his father’s death was avoidable and continue to ask for Justice.

The big doubts are placed on the catwalk or staircase that at that time linked the stalls with the stage, a space that Sergio crossed, and that the experts considered “illegal”.

Diego Colombo was a friend of the singer and today represents his sons in the trial against Raúl Armisen, administrator until today of the theater and whom they consider to be “mainly responsible for Sergio’s death due to the fall he had on stage in the theater Mercedes Sosa”.

“Last week we presented a letter in Tucumán to promote the process and so that Armisen, who is the president of the Mercedes Sosa Antarctic entity designated by the governor of Tucumán at the time, Juan Manzur, is received in an investigative statement, in order to continue advancing. ”, he counted.

In addition, he stressed that an expert report was made on the “catwalk” (the staircase that linked the stage and the stalls): “It is illegal, (it was not) authorized, I am not saying so, the Civil Defense of the Municipality of Tucumán says so, who is the one who has the police power over the care of the theater and who has the conditions fulfilled regarding ordinances, regulations and laws so that the place can function”. “Sergio was killed on stage,” Colombo said.

Given the realization of the aforementioned catwalk without authorization, the text concludes: “You must refrain from holding any type of event in the Mercedes Sosa theater, under the exclusive responsibility of the authorities of said Autarctic Entity until the construction carried out is eliminated or presented the documentation to assign a new assignment of the security measures”.

Finally and about the cause, Colombo added: “During the first year of investigation all the tests were done, then we were left in a state of slowness for no reason, we are suffering. Now there is a new prosecutor and we are waiting for him to order an investigation into Armisen, who is the president of the Mercedes Sosa theater, who is still suspiciously in charge, three years after having killed Sergio Denis on stage for having failed to comply and committed recklessness, negligence and failure to observe the ordinances, regulations and laws that had to be taken into account regarding the custody of the theater so that an artist does not have the tragic fate that Sergio had”.
