Marcel Vivet arrested


The Mossos d’Esquadra arrest Marcel Vivet, a young independence activist from Badalona, on charges of crimes of public disturbance, attacking authority and causing minor injuries during the protests called by Arran on 29 September 2018 against the rally organised by police union Jusapol to honour the police violence of 1 October 2017. The day after his arrest, he is released on charges. The Government of Catalonia, which files a private prosecution, seeks a prison sentence of four years, nine months and one day, while the Prosecutor’s Office seeks five and a half years for the same charges, as well as eight years for Adrià Catasús, arrested at the same demonstration, also on the same charges.
