Alleged police brutality in Valencia to go unpunished
By:
ThinkSpain , Thursday, March 15, 2012

The investigation launched in February by the Valencian regional government into alleged police brutality during the so-called "Valencian Spring" protests against education cuts has decided there will be no repercussions for any of the officers involved.

In a statement to congress today, Interior Minister Jorge Fernández Díaz, confirmed the conclusions of the investigation, adding that the police response was "adequate and appropriate".

The minister, summarising the report drawn up by the government delegate on last month's unpleasant events, insisted "there are no reasons to bring charges against any of the officers involved". He also provided the government's investigating commission with a video of the events that occurred on February 20th.

Fernández Díaz also reiterated that if students at the Lluís Vives college had communicated their intention to take their protest over the lack of heating at their school out onto the streets of Valencia on February 13th, the police would have ban done "everything necessary" to allow them to exercise their right to protest and "none of the subsequent altercations would have happened".

The minister also pointed out that the head teacher of the school concerned later told the press that the heating hadn't, in fact, been turned off.

He made reference to the many other protests that have been carried out without incident across Spain over the past month, and refused to "fan the flames of bygone events" whilst at the same time expressing his hope that they would "not be repeated".
