The Prosecutor’s Office requests 4 years in prison for the four members identified at the end of the ’Holi’ march


Three years after the ‘Holi’ demonstration organised to protest against the Jusapol union’s tribute to the acts of violence committed by the Spanish police on October 1, the Prosecutor’s Office requests four years in prison for each of the four demonstrators identified by the police at the end of the march who had not been arrested. They are accused of crimes of public disturbance with the aggravating factor of committing it in the framework of a demonstration. For this same case, the activist Marcel Vivet had already been sentenced to 5 years in prison for crimes of public disturbance, attacking authority and causing minor injuries to a policeman. There is a pending open case regarding the same events against the activist Adrià Catasús. Three other activists have been acquitted and four more are under investigation for shouting at the police and the Civil Guard.
