Viviana Canosa’s situation went from the media to the Justice. And after receiving beatings and criticism even from her own colleagues and former television colleagues for drinking chlorine dioxide on her program and promoting it in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic as a possible cure, now the host has a hard time where it matters most. Her lawyer, Juan Manuel Dragani, confirmed that she was charged with the crime of “illegal practice of medicine” after the complaint by the Neuquén deputy from the Frente de Todos Mariano Mansilla.
After she drank chlorine dioxide, Canosa was denounced by Mansilla for the alleged “crime of quack or illegal practice of medicine.” Now, the driver’s lawyer, Juan Manuel Dragani, had a dialogue with Moskita Muerta and Nilda Sarli in La Once Diez / Radio de la Ciudad, that her client was charged with that complaint.
“Viviana is sick. She had a weekend where she could practically not sleep because of this situation,” Canosa’s lawyer started saying. And he continued: “I am in a position to affirm that it is an injustice, an arbitrariness, a cruelty. Of course the behaviors are questionable afterwards.”
According to the lawyer, Canosa’s actions were “magnified” and “misrepresented”: “The first of the edges for which he consulted me is because it is imputed in a criminal case that is processed in the Prosecutor’s Office for Criminal, Misconduct and Offenses No. 6 of the City of Buenos Aires, but they are charged with Article 208 of that code, which is the crime of ‘illegal practice of medicine’, which is clear that the conduct does not conform to the putative type stipulated in the rule”.
“The complaint it could have been entered by any citizen. But what of this deputy is not very understandable. I understand that the behaviors are loaded with subjectivity but when she commits the act she clarified ‘I do not recommend it’, so the behavior that Viviana developed in the program is not consistent with the behavior that this article raises, “he said.
In this way, he announced that “once we achieve the dismissal, we will go after all the people who misrepresented their statements and we will initiate actions for damages. I don’t think it has a political connection. I am not aware. Of course it is coincident with the last two events that happened in recent weeks, “he said in reference to the two deaths from ingestion of chlorine dioxide: that of a 5-year-old boy in Plottier and a 50-year-old man in Jujuy.
“The complaint that was formulated against him is not very serious and is disrespectful to justice. Deputy Mansilla omitted to look at the tape and many journalists went a little further, saying that he was advocating the crime or even that he was responsible for the death of people who drank chlorine dioxide. Crazy. Over there this deputy wanted to have some kind of access to the media, I don’t know what mobilized him to make the complaint ”. Dragani closed.
