Pablo Echarri put aside this Sunday the hard confrontation he had with Mauro Viale in 2002 and

dismissed him with respect

on his social networks.

The fight between the two originated when the journalist, in the television program he had on Channel 9, implied that the actor's father, who was kidnapped,

had been murdered


After the death of Viale, who was hospitalized with coronavirus, Echarri expressed

pain at the situation

and also dedicated a few words to the pandemic.

"I regret the departure of Mauro Viale. My condolences to his family and friends.

Shitty pandemic,

" he wrote on Twitter.

Antonio Echarri

, who died on November 4, 2011 at the age of 73, was kidnapped on October 24, 2002 when he was attending his newspaper and magazine stand in Crucecita, Avellaneda.

The captors, at first, demanded a ransom of 100,000 dollars, but on October 29, Nancy Duplaá's husband

paid 200,000

pesos to free Antonio, who suffered from heart problems and diabetes.

Hours after payment,

the police arrested five of the criminals

, who had collected the money and betrayed the rest, and the next day two groups from the Buenos Aires, finally, rescued the victim in a house in Burzaco.

A Viale producer

at that time, Martín Murgía, was


at the beginning of the case.

Although it was not proven that he had any kind of participation in the kidnapping, later the victim's son affirmed in an interview that "he would screw him up again."

Years later, when Pablo Echarri said in a note that the Viale program "he would never see it," the journalist replied publicly: "Everything you did with the poor kidnapping of your father, which I am very sorry,

was a blackmail

. It was very easy to blame me, and that made you angry, which is the performance of your life. "

In recent times, the protagonists, perhaps due to the passage of time,

had ceased direct hostilities


In parallel, each one in their field had shown their affinity or closeness to Kirchnerism.

Ideological differences led Echarri to cross paths with another member of the family: he pointed his criticism at Jonatan Viale.

The actor cataloged the journalist and Mauro's son a few months ago as

"a furious opposition political operator"

through his social networks.

This Monday, in the first broadcast of

Lo de Mariana

, Mariana Fabbiani's new program on El Trece, the first guest of the cycle will be Echarri. He will surely refer to his relationship with Viale and how he took his departure.
