On January 2, after a three-year wait, eight members of a rugby team went on trial for a case that has gripped the nation: the murder Fernando Báez Sosa. Several testimonies from that night confirm that the accused called Báez Sosa racist names while they kicked him on the floor. “They wouldn’t stop hitting him,” said 21-year-old Virginia Pérez Antonelli, who aided Báez Sosa by practicing CPR after the attack. As the conflict escalated, Fernando’s friends tried to explain that there were too many people inside the club. But what is known for sure is that at 4:44a.m, Báez Sosa had been kicked and beaten to death in the street.
