“Love for everyone, hate for no one”: two years after the crime, the parents of Fernando Báez Sosa will participate in a tribute
“It is the first time that I see the sea, it would have been different if Fernando was there”, said Graciela Sosa when she arrived at Villa Gesell, where two years ago a mob beat her only son to death, to participate in a tribute organized under the motto “love for all, hate for no one”.
Silvino Baez Y Grace Sosa, the parents of Fernando Báez Sosa, arrived in Villa Gesell yesterday on a long-distance bus and stayed at the home of the parents of a friend from their son’s elementary school.
The parents of the victim will set foot on the scene of the crime for the first time, which occurred on January 18, 2020, at 7:00 p.m., when the interreligious act convened to remember the young man is scheduled to begin, in which representatives of five religions will participate: the Catholic Apostolic, Anglican, Judaism, Muslim and Mormon.
Each leader will speak and present a quote or religious reference for “peace, justice and against violence” and then Silvino and Graciela will say a few words, as reported to the Télam news agency from the organization of the act.
“The motto will be ‘Love for all, hate for no one’, and we are going to pray for Fernando and for peace, to condemn violence and hatred”Imam Gill, one of the conveners, told Télam.
Days ago, the victim’s parents received THE NATION in his apartment in Recoleta. “Hopefully there will be an exemplary sentence so that we can rest easy. We want what the law says to be fulfilled. If the sentence is 20 or 30 years in prison, they must serve it inside the jail and that the murderers do not leave before their time”, Silvino said.
On January 2 of the following year, the eight accused of the homicide, Luciano Pertossi, 20 years old; Ciro Pertossi, of 21; Lucas Pertossi, of 22; Ayrton Violaz, of 22; Máximo Thomsen, of 22; Enzo Comelli, from 21; Matías Benicelli, 21, and blas cinalli, 20, will begin to be judged in Dolores.
