A few hours after the disclosure of Barbosa’s statements, Manuel Rincón, Freddy’s brother, expressed his rejection of the official position.
“If it was Freddy driving and someone else was the co-driver, the dead wouldn’t be Freddy. Of the two who got out of the car and took a taxi, one of them was driving,” he said.
“The prosecution should have investigated who these people were a long time ago, how are they not going to realize that if Freddy was the one who died and the others got away unharmed, how is he going to be driving? The prosecutor is lying, they are not investigating well and will get out of trouble“, he concluded in his dialogue with ‘Semana’.
