The five members of La Manada, sentenced to 9 years in prison for sexual abuse with a young Madrid woman in the 2016 Sanfermines, will remain on provisional release after dismissing the appeals filed for the accusations against the decision of the Audiencia de Navarra adopted in January in that sense.
With the same result, two votes against one and the same argument, as "it could not be otherwise", according to the defendant's lawyer, Agustín Martínez Becerra, told Efe, the second section of the Audiencia de Navarra has rejected the appeals filed by the private accusation and the popular accusations that exert the City Council of Pamplona and the Government of Navarre, to which the Prosecutor's Office adhered.
The accusations they appealed in appeal the decision of the court to dismiss the provisional prison requested by the prosecution and the accusations for the five defendants after the Civil and Criminal Chamber of the Superior Court of Justice of Navarra confirmed last December the penalty that had been imposed.
Two magistrates in front of one, who in their private vote advocated ordering the provisional detention for the accused, considered that there were not sufficient reasons to modify their situation of provisional freedom and considered "weak" the risk of flight. Now they have returned to pronounce themselves in the same sense. EFE
