The Prosecutor's Office refuses to fine those who damage yellow ties if they are not in a public good
The Prosecutor's Office has shelved the investigation for the sanctions that local police of l'Ametlla de Mar (Tarragona) imposed on those who repainted a structure with a yellow ribbon, and warns that those who cause damage to those symbols should not be fined if they are not in a public good.
In a decree, the fiscal lieutenant of Catalonia Pedro Ariche agrees to file the proceedings opened by the identifications of L'Ametlla de Mar, as well as a tweet from the mayor of the town, Jordi Gaseni, which he called "bugs" to the people who repainted the monument of the yellow tie, located in a roundabout of the town, among them the journalist and founder of Ciudadanos Arcadi Espada.
For the Public Prosecutor's Office, although it is not criminal, imposing sanctions on the people who damaged the monument of L'Ametlla de Mar is an "irregular" behavior since that symbol can not be considered a public good since " wine ordered not even endorsed "by the town hall.
The public prosecutor, on the other hand, keeps open for the moment the investigation that opened by the identifications, on the part of the Mossos d'Esquadra, to 14 people who withdrew yellow ties from the public space in the Tarragona municipalities of Móra la Nova, Tivissa and Vandellòs i l'Hospitalet de l'Infant.
