Vi­o­lent ex­trem­ists un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion

Costa Levante News - - NEWS - By Shel­ley Lid­dell

A VA­LEN­CIA judge is cur­rently in­ves­ti­gat­ing 13 right wing ex­trem­ists for caus­ing var­i­ous vi­o­lent in­ci­dents dur­ing a na­tion­al­ist demon­stra­tion on Oc­to­ber 9, which was the day Va­len­cia cel­e­brated its Re­gional Day.

The men un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion al­legedly at­tacked news re­porters and other peo­ple tak­ing part in the demon­stra­tion. The judge is in­ves­ti­gat­ing them for hate crimes, pub­lic disor­der and for caus­ing in­juries. One is also ac- cused of at­tempted rob­bery with vi­o­lence as he tried to snatch a cam­era from a pho­tog­ra­pher.

All thirteen have links to right wing rad­i­cal groups in Va­len­cia such as Grupo Yo­mus, while nine where found to be mem­bers of the Va­len­cia Foot­ball Clubs rightwing fan group.

As well as those in­jured re­port­ing them, Va­len­cia Town Hall will likely claim com­pen­sa­tion for de­struc­tion of street fur­ni­ture dur­ing the street fights.
