The case against a mechanic from Reus is dismissed


The Third Examining Magistrate’s Court of Reus dismisses the case against mechanic Jordi Perelló for allegedly inciting hatred when, in protest against the police charges of 1 October, he refused to service a car belonging to a National Police officer. The court finds that there are no grounds to consider Perelló’s actions a crime of inciting hatred. Perelló then files an accusation before the Mossos d’Esquadra’s Internal Affairs Division, arguing that the agent who reported him displayed ‘irregular behaviour off duty’. The case against the agent is opened for ‘undermining the image of the Mossos and the prestige and reputation of the Government of Catalonia’ and he is ultimately disciplined with a one-month suspension from duties without pay.
