Roger Aguayo’s trial begins; two Mossos are asking he spend four years in prison


The oral trial against the young man from Calldetenes Roger Aguayo begins at the Provincial Court of Barcelona. He had been arrested at the roadblock of the Eix Transversal organised during the general strike of 21 February 2019 to protest the start of the trial of the 1 October referendum. The Prosecutor’s Office accuses him of crimes of attacking the authority and causing minor injuries, and requests he spend a year in prison, whereas the private prosecution, represented by the lawyers of two agents of the Mossos d’Esquadra, also accuse him of attacking the authority and request a 4 year prison sentence. Aguayo argues that he did not attack an officer and that his arrest for an alleged assault is ‘random.’ Two days later, the trial ends pending the sentence.
