article imageProtests grow in support of Spanish citizen threatened by Police Special

By Anne Sewell     Feb 3, 2012 in World
Fuengirola - A member of the 15m Movement, in Fuengirola, Spain was threatened by a local police officer last year when handing out informational leaflets in the local plaza.
Gonzalo Perez Chomon was handing out informational pamphlets in the Plaza de la Constitucion in Fuengirola, informing the local residents of the corruption of the ruling party in the town, who had recently increased their own salaries by up to 50%, whilst the country is in the middle of a huge financial crisis.
He was approached by local police, and told that he was not allowed to hand out these pamphlets. Gonzalo became a little angry at this, as the group had permission to meet in the Plaza.
The police officer actually threatened Gonzalo, saying that if he were in plain clothes "he would kill him".
Some months later a denunciation was handed to Gonzalo for disobedience and disrespect for a police officer.
The case was heard in the courts of Fuengirola, Spain on 26 January 2012, and Gonzalo was absolved from the so-called "crime".
