Clarín in the city of rugby players: the striking attitude in Zárate with the ruling of Fernando Báez Sosa


The verdict that sentenced the eight defendants did not arouse interest in the population. People no longer want to know anything about the case and there were even bars with the TV off.

At 1:17 p.m. sharp, the reading of the sentence for the defendants in the trial by Fernando Baez Sosa began.

The verdict made the defendants guilty of the murder.

Clarín traveled to Zárate, to investigate how this city

where the now condemned

lived lived this key day.

The streets, through which more than once they themselves walked.

they were emptying as noon approached.

Something typical of the dynamics of the place.

Nothing linked to what was about to happen in Dolores and what was followed in the rest of the country on every TV screen.


was the

note in Zárate.

A deep, striking, almost symptomatic indifference.

Fed up of the neighbors before the questions of this chronicler, before an event that put the municipality in the focus of all eyes and for which it will surely be remembered.

Indifference also reigned in the city's Yacht Club.

The bars were not full, people did not follow the reading of the sentence carefully, many did not want to answer questions.

One bar even chose to turn off the television so as

not to broadcast the verdict


An express order to leave it turned off or "we don't usually put the news here" were the justifications expressed. 

The same indifference was lived in the Club Náutico Arsenal de Zárate, where the condemned played rugby.

In this hot midday children come out after spending the morning there.

The caretaker at the gate says something: "Those who play rugby are on a separate court, they only pass through the gate."

With the attitude of the neighbors, Zárate seems to want to break away or leave behind once and for all any connection with the eight -now- guilty of the murder that occurred in Villa Gesell three years ago.
