The Civil Guard summons three Blanes residents to testify for attempting to place yellow ribbons near the Sol d’Or restaurant in Blanes


Last August, the owner of the Sol d’Or restaurant on the seafront in Blanes reported three people, members of the CDRs, for attempting to place yellow ribbons near his restaurant. A few days later, most of the media had already published the version of the restaurant owner and a media campaign had started up in his favour. PP councillor Xavier García Albiol visited the restaurant to support the local manager after he had ‘suffered an attack of totalitarianism and the intransigence of part of the Catalan population.’ The three under investigation for alleged crimes of inciting hatred, slander, and public disturbance are adhering to their right to remain silent while a hundred people supported them outside the Civil Guard headquarters. The defence lawyer, Montserrat Vinyets, has not ruled out that they will also file a complaint against the owner.
