“Today is very striking; no one steals with two support vehicleswith weapons that are not usual, which has very expensive ammunition It is not a simple robbery. These situations happen when the victim defends himself, but here there was no money, there was nothing, they only took a wallet and from the stirrup they executed a worker,” Berni described in statements to C5N.

Regarding the aggressors, Berni said that “I am not a pimp, but in the same way that when there are prosecutors who denounce illicit enrichment, there must be prosecutors who have what they have to have and must be investigating; surely the turns of life will allow us to face to face in the street”.
