The trial of eight young men accused of being part of a neo-Nazi gang that caused destruction and attacked people in Mar del Plata during various violent acts, culminated this Thursday with sentences that reach up to 9 years in prison.
The members of the Federal Criminal Oral Court of the seaside resort, Roberto Falcone, Mario Portela and Bernardo Bibel considered that the facts were not isolated but that it was of the action of a "grouping" and on that they based their unprecedented ruling.
In this way, the Justice condemned Oleksander Levchenko, Gonzalo Paniagua, Alan Olea and Nicolás Caputo, to penalties that go between the eight and nine years of jail. Likewise, the residential prisons were revoked, for which reason they were transferred to Unit 28 of the Federal Penitentiary Service.
For his part, Giuliano Spagnolo was sentenced to 5 years and six months in prison, while his brother Giordano was acquitted for considering his lack of merit. In addition, Franco Pozas received a sentence of four years and six months.
The defendants responded to a group calling itself "Black Flag" that committed beatings and violent actions against members of trans collectives and militants for sexual diversity.
