The Rosario Justice accused a 19-year-old young man on Friday for the anonymous call he made demanding the freedom of members of the Los Monos gang and threatening prosecutors with death if he did not comply with that request.

The mother of the accused was accused as primary participant, since it was considered proven that she provided the telephone number from which the communication was established.

"Release the stonemasons because we are going to kill all the prosecutors ... Release the Monkeys because I am going to kill all the prosecutors, you know?

We are going to kill all the prosecutors.

Let go of The Monkeys, this is not a joke.

We are not going to fuck around.

You don't screw with the mafia

”, was the message that Rodrigo M. left last Monday at 4:47 p.m. to the operators at the 911 Emergency Center.

The defendant admitted at the hearing to have made the call, but

said it was only a joke

, a motive that both the prosecution and the judge ruled out based on the evidence presented.

“This was not a joke.

It is a discarded hypothesis ”, refuted the flagrancy prosecutor, Franco Carbone.

The defendant did not answer questions, so it was not possible to delve into the reasons for the incident.

"At this stage of the investigation, I cannot affirm that (the accused) belongs to the gang that is being tried at this time, to an antagonistic group or another person who wants to harm this gang," Carbone clarified.

Rodrigo M. has two antecedents in the penal system and another five as a minor.

If found guilty, he

could face a prison sentence of 3 to 6 years


The boy's mother, Ana María M., recently served a sentence of 5 years and 6 months in prison for a qualified robbery for the use of a firearm.

The identification of the number from which the call was made allowed us to quickly find the black Genius Touch cell phone with blue highlights, owned by Ana María M. The woman was arrested on Tuesday and a day later her son fell.

The threat he made was known while a trial against

Ariel “Guille” Cantero

and six other members of the organization he commanded for shootings against judicial targets

was being held at the Criminal Justice Center (CJP)

, episodes that took place between May and August 2018 .

The young man was charged on Friday with "coercive threats classified as anonymous as the author", while his mother is accused of the same crime, but as a primary participant.

"This anonymous intimidating act had the purpose that the prosecutors of the Public Prosecutor's Office (MPA), as a provincial public body, stop carrying out their tasks as holders of public action throughout the province," was raised in the accusation.

Prior to the Los Monos trial, there was a shooting attack on the Criminal Justice Center.

Currently, four prosecutors and three judges are taking part in the trial against Cantero and his accomplices, in which fourteen episodes against private homes and judicial buildings are being tried.

Over all of them, but also over the CJP building, custody was reinforced after the anonymous call on Monday.

Bullet attack

Two days before the new trial against the leader of Los Monos began, the CJP was assaulted

by two people who were riding motorcycles


The attack was anticipated in a confidential report prepared by the Security areas.

The letter suggested the convenience that the hearings take place without having to transfer the detainees, a modality that was finally accepted by the Justice.

However, the report warned that even with this precaution, attacks could occur that cause "severe injury (to people), significant damage to property", as well as "contain serious potential risks that are likely to occur."

Cantero is pointed out as the instigator of the attacks against houses and judicial buildings.

The theory of the prosecutors is that he ordered this work after it was arranged to transfer him from a prison in Santa Fe to another in the Federal sphere, located in Chaco.

At the beginning of the trial, and when he had to present his formal data to the Court, "Guille" said he had "various jobs" and then surprised by stating:

"He hired hit men to shoot the judges."

The leader of Los Monos has been sentenced in different cases and has

already been in prison for 64 years and eight months

, although the majority without final convictions.

Prosecutors requested a 24-year prison sentence for the shootings.

“For the first time we are going through a particular context.

We have the Tribunal practically besieged by provincial and national forces, damaging an entire neighborhood.

It is an issue that all the prosecutors in the province are facing.

It is an issue that mobilizes ”, admitted Carbone at the end of the process.

After the imputative hearing for the telephone threat last Monday, Judge Gonzalo López Quintana ordered the effective preventive detention for the woman until November 17, while her son will be detained for the law period of two years.
