The Prosecutor’s Office reports 39 people from Camp de Tarragona for cutting off traffic on the A-27 and AP-7 during the general strike of 8 November


Those reported by the Prosecutor’s Office include members of the CDRs and CUP MPs Edgar Fernández and Laia Estrada. They are being prosecuted for an alleged crime against traffic safety following a report by the Spanish National Police stating that slow marches by demonstrators and cutting off the A-27 motorway and the AP-7 motorway during the 8 November strike violated the right of people who wanted to go to work or who wanted to travel on these roads. The Second Examining Magistrate’s Court of Tarragona summons them to testify on 14, 18, 21 and 25 May. Some adhere to the right to remain silent arguing that they are protected by their rights to freedom of expression and demonstration and claim that the report links the political affiliation of those under investigation with the crime for which they are being accused. The defence requests for the case to be filed.
