Fired, retired and discriminated by disability: They have stolen 12 years as a policeman

12 years after the accident and his forced retirement, there is a high school teacher who could be a policeman again. Vicenç has managed to review herself and the Superior Court of Justice Catalonia (TSJC) obliges the City Council of Barcelona to assess him to find out if, with a battered foot, he can be Urbanoan guard second activity.

"I've been asking myself for 12 years why I can not be a policeman before a computer, organizing a file, doing research, working on the scientist or serving complaints."

-What will happen now?

-What, even if it will turn again, the town hall will have to evaluate me to know if I am able or not. Finally!

It is called Vicenç Flores and is the incarnation of an institutional abuse, the metaphor of a human being crushed by the administration.

On May 20, 2009, when he was going to help a woman who was being attacked by a man, a car hit Vicenç's motorbike, who left fired and shattered one foot. Months later, being off, he saw a robbery, struggled with the thief and re-injured his foot again.

A medical tribunal was ruled by a "permanent incapacity in total grade", and on July 20, 2010, the City Council retired (retroactively to 2009) without giving him an option to a second activity.

Flores initiated a judicial Calvary with inadmissions of Spanish and European courts, resources of the Municipal Governments (the PSC of Jordi Hereu, that of Ciu de Xavier Trias and that of Barcelona in Comú de Ada Colau) and even, in 2013, a sentence Decorated TSJC.

The same thing that now gives you the reason.

"The turn began in 2019, when the United Nations ruled that I had been discriminated against by disability."

With this moral force, the former police returned to the Patria Justice helped by Gentium's lawyers and in November 2020 the Barcelona Court of Barcelona sentenced the City Council for "violation of fundamental right to equality and non-discrimination."

The consistory appealed that ruling, but now the TSJC seals the case with a demolishing sentence.

Because it supports the theses of the Court on Vulneration of Fundamental Rights and the UN on Discrimination.

Because it reminds the City Council that, although UN Opinions are not executive or binding, "they clearly have an interpretive value of internal standards." That is, that local or national laws should not contradict international treaties.

Because the Local Police Act of Catalonia and the Statute of Public Employees allow a second activity with a permanent disability.

Because it states that Flores suffered "discrimination because of disability in continuity in public employment that developed" and "has had to go through a long way of demands and resources to obtain justice."

And because all that has caused "certain moral damages" that involve 6,251 euros of compensation.

"When I was fired, the world came on, I was a policeman for a vocation, and with 29 years retired me."

-So what did you do?

-I looked for my life. He went with crutches as a basketball monitor of a neighborhood team. Then he signed me a sports centers management company. From there I jumped to train the lower categories of Joventut de Badalona. I studied a degree of prevention and integral security, a master's degree in prevention of occupational risks and another teacher and worked as a prevention technician. I was also auditor. And now young educator in exclusion and teacher.

-And during all that time, did you fight in the courts?

-And out of them. We have created an associative fabric to help police people from all over Spain with a disability. We have served about 400. This is a collective struggle.

-And yours how are you summarized?

-You have stolen my life as a policeman.
