BUENOS AIRES – An Argentine court put three accused drug dealers on trial Friday in the case of five revelers who died from consuming synthetic designer drugs during an electronic music festival last month in Buenos Aires.
Judicial sources confirmed to EFE that Judge Sebastian Casanello put the three men on trial, including two foreign nationals, for suspected drug dealing during the Time Warp festival.
Days before, Casanello ordered the arrest of attorney Victor Stinfale, indicated by prosecutors as the undercover mastermind of the event.
The court seeks to determine the relationship between Stinfale and Adrian Conci, head of Dell Producciones, organizers of Time Warp, who has also been taken into custody.
Prosecutors are also investigating members of the coast guard in charge of public safety in the area of the complex where the festival was held.
Time Warp, attended by some 20,000 people, was the place on April 16 where five males between ages 20-25 lost their lives from supposedly consuming synthetic drugs.
