Originally this hearing was scheduled for July 16, however, it was suspended by a written appeal filed by the defense of Ferrufino and Ángel Brennan .
This appeal was filed against a ruling that did not admit evidence that Ferrufino’s defense would present at the hearing.
This August 27 was the alternate date of the hearing and Ferrufino, Brennan and Tomás Ruglianchich Him were called to trial.
In this investigation, Ferrufino is prosecuted for allegedly receiving $ 50,000 from a company (beneficiary with contracts from the Ministry of Social Development) for the purchase of said vehicle.
