(en) cnt.es: [Spain] Chronicle of the first day of a trial without evidence (pt, ca) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 15 Apr 2018 08:01:20 +0300

After almost six years, the so-called "No Caso" trial arrives, in which two members of the CNT of Logroño face sentences of more than 9 and 7 years of prison after being accused of some acts that did not realize. ---- Sheltered by the solidarity of family members and companions, the two trade unionists came to the last pending case for facts related to the strike of 14N 2012. Another of the police assemblies aimed at criminalizing the trade union and social movement of this country, such as those that come succeeding since then. ---- The session has had a strange beginning, since the accused had to testify before their accusers, when the normal - and the logical procedural - is usually the other way around. And is that if one has to start defending before they accuse him, he is denying the presumption of innocence that supposedly anyone has a right.

But this has been happening since the beginning of the whole process. Because this is a judgment in which the accusation lacks any evidence against the accused. The police version is the only argument to accuse Jorge and Pablo. And that is a version, which, judging by the statements in today's session (09/04), seems more proper of the desire to incriminate them than a faithful description of the facts. Even in view of the videos recorded by the protesters, who demonstrated that the allegations were false, the police continued to keep their particular "souvenir" of the facts. A "memory" that in no way coincides with reality, as was evident.

And it was only the recordings that the protesters themselves could see, since the police destroyed their own recordings, not considering them with sufficient "quality". Neither was it possible to dispose of those carried out by the fixed cameras of the regional government building, since they were routinely destroyed as they were not requested as evidence, although Jorge and Pablo were charged just the day after the demonstration.

Both Jorge and Pablo denied all charges against them. How could it not be otherwise, since Pablo did not throw any stone or object against the police and also did not resist the arrest, as it sustains the same police. Jorge, accused of inciting violence apparently, by singing slogans like 'the boss understands only a language: boycott, strike and sabotage', had to explain the meaning of said motto. Kafka would not have written it better.

It would have to clarify that this judgment is being carried out because both Jorge and Pablo rejected the "deal" offered by the prosecution reason why they reduced the penalties of 9 and 7 years respectively, to other inferiors that avoided the entrance in the prison if they pleaded guilty. After five years of requesting very serious penalties against these two people, citizens, we suppose, although they are members of the CNT, when approaching the trial and to avoid that the plot of this assembly is evident, if they intend to leave in a simple fine. That says all of this process.
