The four agents of the National Police of Mérida detained in the operation against drug trafficking named Minuro-fish born last week in Extremadura have been transferred this afternoon from the Jail of Badajoz - Where they entered Friday night - the Penitentiary Center Madrid VII, commonly known as the jail of shudder. All of them have been transferred in a van from the Civil Guard.
Although it had been speculated throughout the day that the police were going to be sent to Sevilla 1 prison for being closest to Extremadura, finally the Ministry of the Interior has opted because they enter prison in the capital of Spain. That of azer, like that of Seville 1, has a special and separate module from the rest of the prisoners intended for all those members of the security forces and bodies of the State that are arrested, thus avoiding that they mix with another type of prisoners, Also in the case that preventive prison is waiting for the development of judicial actions that follow the court No. 3 of Mérida and that of Torrevieja (Alicante), where an agent of the Civil Guard is also detained in relation to this operation.
A fifth police agent was released with charges last Friday after lending a statement to the questions of his lawyer, not to those of the judge and the prosecutor. He was the most rookie of the group of narcotics having admitted on this team last February. The judge released him but withdrew his passport and forced him to appear every fifteen days in court. The next day of the first arrest he stopped another agent, a policeman, attached to the Messarch of Mérida but not to the group of narcotics, but she was released with charges.
The other four agents who completed the group - including the Chief Inspector -, to which their lawyers recommended not to declare to be the case under the Summary's secret and not knowing judicial and police proceedings, entered provisional prison and without bail. The cause, which is under Summary's secret, is followed, among others, for crimes against public health, belonging to criminal organization and omission of the duty to pursue crime, the Superior Court of Extremadura reported on Friday.
At the moment, detainees are rated as "second-degree preventive prisoners available to the judge," has clarified the lawyer, "and as soon as possible we have the copies of the whole process, because now the folder we have empty, we can. Prepare the defenses and present that resource. " That is why they will also request that the secret of the actions be lifted.
Roberto Lorenzo has pointed out that there is no fear that agents were mixed with other inmates but there is a protocol of action in these cases that is launched for all those members of the State Security Forces and Bodies when they are detained and Sent to prison, even provisional. "It is the usual regulatory process that has been followed", and that at the moment it has not been able to include any communication from the agents to their attorneys in these early days that have been in prison in Badajoz: "They did not have authorized calls," Ha specified.
The transfer of the agents to Madrid instead of A Seville means that the distance of the trips is almost doubled for lawyers and family members when visits are allowed.
There are also at least four other investigated that have been at provisional freedom with charges. All have been withdrawn the passport and have the obligation to appear in court every 15 days.Updated Date: 22 September 2021, 10:18
