Pol Vidal, the youth from Seu d’Urgell who participated in the general strike of 21 February 2019, is acquitted


Pol Vidal was accused of committing crimes of attacking the authority and causing minor injuries for having, according to the police’s version, punched an officer’s helmet and caused another to fall to the ground. The Prosecutor’s Office called for a sentence of one and a half years in prison and a fine of 360 euros. Pol Vidal took part in the strike of 21 February 2019 to protest against the trial of the leaders of the 1 October. Specifically, he was involved in the roadblock of the N-260, and was prosecuted along with six other activists known as ‘the 7 of La Seu,’ but their cases were postponed. The Second Criminal Court now acquits Pol on the understanding that his identification as the perpetrator of the acts cannot be deduced from the statements of the two Mossos d’Esquadra and pronounces an acquittal, which becomes final as no appeals are filed against it.
