El Pollo Cerviño broke his silence after his ex-wife’s complaints (In the afternoon. América)
In mid-September, Cinthia García’s complaint against her ex-partner, Alejandro Pollo Cerviño, for “seriously outrageous child sexual abuse aggravated by the bond” of the son they have in common when he was 5 years old, became public. Juan Pablo Gallego, the woman’s plaintiff lawyer, requested that he be detained after she refused to testify in court and assured that the child’s story on Gesell’s camera was “overwhelming.”
Since then, the announcer had chosen silence and when asked by Teleshow he was brief. “My priority is my son. He is 8 years old and has been brutally exposed. I am waiting for judicial steps to prove the false accusations against me and my family. Soon we will be able to talk,” he said.
Meanwhile, FM Rock & Pop, where he hosts the program Key in Hand, had then issued a brief statement on its networks regarding his professional situation. “Based on the publicly known information about the complaint filed against Alejandro ‘Pollo’ Cerviño, Rock & Pop trusts in Justice and hopes for a prompt resolution and clarification of the facts.”
15 days after the case became public, the journalist finally spoke about his situation on a cell phone with A la noche. “I’m not talking about the case, I’m not talking about my son, I respect what we agreed to in court,” he explained. Regarding how long it has been since he has seen his son, he said, “I don’t know if I can answer that, but it’s been a long time.” And he did not want to refer to Cinthia García either: “I’m not talking about my son’s mother. She is already there, respect my place.”
Then, the chronicler Matías Vázquez asked him how his mother is: “Like any grandmother who loses her grandson and her contact experiences it. Someone who has given his life for her grandson. And we all know it very well.” Asked if he had anything to say, he expressed: “I don’t have to say anything to people. And I don’t have to say anything to my son on a camera. I’m going to tell him personally when he has the chance. I thank you, I understand the journalistic need but I also understood the place that I play,” he said before the cameras of the América program.
The complaint against Pollo Cerviño
“I don’t need a right of reply on TV. My life is in justice, then I will have time for TV. I know that I built my life on TV, but my priority is my son and in the background, my life. And my career will have to wait, if there is a career. I hope that when the situation is verified and progresses, one can recover his life. It’s not that I don’t have a life, I’m dedicated to this. I have a right and an obligation to justice,” he continued in the interview conducted in the town of Bernal, where he lives.
He also spoke about the judicial situation and the request for the arrest of his ex-wife’s lawyer. “Party lawyers ask for what they ask for. I have no observation on that. In a judicial situation there are two parties. I am not notified. I don’t need to hand over my passport. I am from here, I am here and I am going to stay here. And I will respond where I need to respond,” she assured.
When asked about the versions that powerful people bank on him: “Yes, a lot of powerful people bank on me,” he responded ironically. Do you see me as I am? Then, the chronicler specifically asked him about the rumors that link him with the brava group of the Quilmes club, where he served as the voice of the stadium. “What is the proof? How can we think that? Do you know what it’s like to be the voice of the stadium? For that task I charged zero, ad honorem, for the love I have for the club. Because I like to belong, because I am from Quilmes, because it is my identity, it is my life,” he expressed, dressed in a beer club jacket.
“Don’t look there because you won’t find anything. I understand everything that has been put together around this, but I have nothing more to say. I thank you, I’m not talking about the cause, I’m not talking about the mother,” the announcer continued. And he answered the last question, about whether he was at peace: “I am always at peace. Because I know well what I did. Of course I’m innocent.
