The tabloid press and some of his relatives are doing their thing on social media since my silence and absence comes from my pain, not from fear or lack of answers to all these people who claim to have known or had a real relationship with my husband.”
“I will fight to the end for the truth to be restored and his name is washed away from all these slanders around his death. MY HUSBAND DID NOT DIE OF COVID and I would never have accepted that what happened served to spread fear and claims of vaccination. Just be patient, a lot of things are in preparation to answer all your questions,” she said.
