For his part, the family’s lawyer, Germán Zini, confirmed that he approached the Court this Tuesday that is carrying out the investigation to “constitute a complaint”, with the primary objective of “knowing what happened” but also to stipulate why neither of the two parachutes opened.

The family is uncertain and wants to know if it was a human, technical or parachute material error. So the first step is to present ourselves to Justice, file the complaint” and make ourselves available to determine what happened to Franco,” the lawyer completed.

The accident shocked both Vice President Victoria Villarruel and the Minister of Defense, Luis Petri, who expressed themselves on social networks and regretted the episode.
