The smiles and happy birthday songs only interrupted by Dylan’s barking gave way to a bitter fight between those attending Fabiola Yañez’s 39th birthday, celebrated during the strictest stage of the pandemic at Quinta de Olivos and with President Alberto Fernández as the main host.
This Wednesday, Two other of the guests invited to that controversial celebration were no longer represented by the lawyer chosen by Fernández to coordinate the common strategy before the courts: according to a brief presented before the Sebastián Casanello court and to which Clarion accessed from judicial sources, doctor Juan Pablo Fioribello gave up defending the sisters Rocío and Florencia Fernández Peruilh, due to “serious divergences in the defense strategy.”
At first, and by order of the president, Fioribello had delivered in Comodoro Py writings of representation on behalf of eight of those present on the birthday, starting with the honoree herself. Only the hairdresser had been left out of that common front Fernando Abraham and the stylist Carolina Marafioti.
But 24 hours after those presentations, on Wednesday of last week, the lawyer surprised with a swerve: he would no longer represent Stefanía Domínguez, the enterprising Chubut friend of Fabiola whom a government-commissioned investigation credited him with offering the images of the birthday.
Now, two other people present at the Olivos celebration will take their own path before justice, and probably also in front of the media.
Angry at the volume of the scandal and the public interpellations to which they are subjected in the street all the time, and fearful of what Judge Casanello may solve, several of those who made up that group of friends now they don’t speak to each other, and they even suspect each other of what the other can say or show.
Was the birthday party the only debatable event you participated in? Were there other encounters whose disclosure could complicate them in court or public opinion? Can the government try to save the president and his partner by blaming others? Alberto Fernández’s first reaction when the scandal broke out, and he blamed Fabiola for the meeting, he did not leave the rest of his friends alone.
In fact, who was one of the closest to the first lady, the young Sofia Pacchi, She clarified that she no longer works for her, although she does report to the Casa Rosada, where this week she reported again.
