The prosecutor’s intervention came after the complaint filed by a representative of the Optics Chamber of Salta against the defendants, who, without having a license plate, were engaged in the illegal sale of glasses and issuing medical prescriptions.
The complainant maintained that she became aware of the activities carried out by the accused through social networks and via WhatsApp. Subsequently, police personnel went to the neighborhood center in the Miguel Ortíz neighborhood, where the defendants carried out their illegal activity.
