Ricardo Emanuel Papadopulos continues to be detained at Mayor’s Office 14 of Palermo

The Justice of the City of Buenos Aires closed the instruction and raised to trial the cause investigating the death of Isaac Sus, the 5-year-old boy who he was run over in the Flores neighborhood by a car driven by Ricardo Emanuel Papadopulos.

The young man who at the wheel of a Volkswagen Golf GTI rammed the child and his mother in December is detained at Mayor’s Office 14 of Palermo waiting for a transfer. Yesterday Patricia guichandut, holder of Criminal and Correctional Court 62, declared the investigation closed and brought the case to trial. Papadopulos is accused of the crime of wrongful death aggravated by the reckless driving of a motor vehicle and by fleeing the scene without providing assistance to the victim.

It all happened on December 17, minutes after 11 at night, when Débora Inés Agosti and her son Isaac Sus crossed San Pedrito Avenue, at the intersection with Directorate Avenue, and were run over by the white vehicle driven by Papadopulos. The boy was killed instantly, while his mother was seriously injured.

At the time of the accident, the young man circulated without registration. At first, his father Rubén was the one who appeared before the Justice and alleged that the car that hit Issac and his mother was his property. When it was determined that he was not the one who was driving the vehicle and he swore that he did not know anything about his son, an operation was mounted to find him young man, who after being a fugitive for nine days turned himself in on December 25 at the Homicide Division of the City Police, located at 1,350 Scalabrini Ortiz Avenue, in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Palermo. Until now he remains detained in a police station awaiting a place in the prison system.

“We have been winning all the battles, things have turned out very well in the lawsuit.. The cause was seen to be very quick. For now, the judge declared the closure of the investigation and the defense did not oppose the elevation to trial, “he told Telam the lawyer for the complaint, Gabriel Becker, who clarified that in the next 10 days they will be summoned “to complete the tests.” “Then you have to see if the defense is going to negotiate going to an abbreviated trial or an oral trial,” he completed. In this way, the chambermaids confirmed Guichandut’s ruling.

Becker stated that “Criminal responsibility is proven” de Papadopulos and affirmed that the 21-year-old carried out “three illegal maneuvers.” “All the experts have had coincident conclusions regarding all the points: Papadopulos was circulating on the Avenida Directory, he never stopped and the traffic light was red”said the lawyer.

After surrendering himself to justice, his lawyer, Roberto Herrero, justified that “a truck blocked his vision.” “He couldn’t have stopped because he dodges the truck, he crosses in green. The truck that comes from the opposite hand goes in red ”, he argued. And he explained that his client did not stay to help the woman and her son “because he was scared”: “He was without registration and the first thing he thought was that a child had not died. He finds out through the media”.

The 21-year-old was arrested at the end of December after being on the run for 9 days

The 21-year-old was arrested at the end of December after being on the run for 9 days 

Last week, Chamber VI of the City’s Chamber of Criminal and Correctional Appeals rejected Papadopulos’s request for house arrest “since by remaining at large for nine days, he demonstrated that there is a risk of flight and that he has the means to do so. ”Becker commented.
