The Provincial Court of Barcelona overturns the conviction of Jose Téllez for disobedience


The court accepts for consideration the appeal presented by Jose Téllez, a Badalona city councillor with Guanyem Badalona en Comú and member of the CUP, and overturns the 4,380 euro fine ordered by the Seventh Examining Magistrate’s Court of Barcelona for an alleged crime of disobedience after Téllez took confiscated posters for the 1 October referendum campaign from a Badalona City Police car and returned them to Òmnium activists. The Prosecutor’s Office presents an appeal before the Supreme Court against the Provincial Court of Barcelona’s acquittal and calls for the 4,380 euro fine imposed on Téllez to be upheld.
