The Navarre Foral Police is investigating an alleged sexual assault last morning from Saturday to Sunday in the vicinity of the Pamplona neighborhood of Mendillorri. The complaint was made known this Monday, in the Local Civil Protection Board. The Pamplona City Council, through a statement approved by the Board of Spokespersons, has shown its "total rejection and condemnation" of this event. The text includes the support and solidarity with the woman and her environment, while asking for maximum respect to preserve her rights and privacy.

In compliance with its coordination and response protocol, the town hall of the Navarran capital reaffirms, in the midst of the San Fermín festivities, its rejection and condemnation of any type of aggression, violence or sexist attitude that occurs in the city and its commitment in working to eliminate gender-based attacks, improve security and guarantee the full exercise of women's freedom in all kinds of settings.

In addition, from the consistory led by Enrique Maya they urge citizens to show an active attitude against sexist attacks and to contribute to a social and cultural model that protects women, without ever justifying the aggressor under the premise of the party or the customs. Likewise, from the Pamplona City Council they adhere to the announcements and calls made in the municipality of Pamplona and invite citizens to participate in the acts of protest called by the feminist movement.

Precisely, the Iruñerria Feminist Movement and the Popular Movement have called a protest rally tomorrow, Tuesday, at 5:30 p.m. in Pamplona's Plaza del Castillo against this sexual assault.

The groups of the City Council urge “the citizens of Pamplona, ​​men and women, to show an active attitude against sexist attacks and to contribute to a social and cultural model that protects women, without ever justifying the aggressor under the premise of the party or customs. "We reiterate our firm commitment to the fight against sexist attacks and we are committed to a free city for women and that can be lived in freedom," they add.

Possible cases of chemical submission

In addition, this past night two new complaints have been filed for touching, which are added to the four complaints of women who have reported to the Foral Police "feeling pricks" during the San Fermín festivities.

The mayor of Pamplona, ​​Enrique Maya, expressed his concern on Monday after the Provincial Police received four complaints about possible cases of chemical submission during the San Fermín festivities. He stressed that "we are going to be very vigilant" and explained that, to date, there have been no arrests. In statements to the media, the mayor has said that he is "concerned" and has stressed that "fortunately, as I have been informed, it had no other effect than the puncture itself." "These girls noticed that something was happening to them but, fortunately, because they were in a gang and they can comment on it, it didn't happen anymore," he concluded.
