The Supreme Court acquits Jose Téllez for retrieving posters confiscated by the City Police


The councillor of Guanyem Badalona en Comú and CUP activist Jose Téllez testifies on 23 February before the Supreme Court. He was accused of the crimes of disobedience and obstruction of justice for having taken some campaign posters from a car of the Badalona City Police, which had been previously confiscated by the agents, and returning them to the Òmnium activists. At that time, Téllez was the third deputy mayor and in charge of the areas of Finance, Patrimony and Human Resources of the municipal government during Dolors Sabater’s administration. The Supreme Court summoned him after admitting the appeal lodged by the Prosecutor’s Office against the acquittal passed by the Provincial Court of Barcelona.
