The judge files the case regarding the Sánchez doll beaten in Ferraz: “Lack of education is not a crime”

Judge Concepción Jerez has agreed to archive the investigation into the events that occurred last New Year’s Eve next to the party’s national headquarters on Ferraz Street, when a doll identified with the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, was hanged and beaten, ensuring that “lack of education is not a crime.”

In an order from this Thursday, collected by Europa Press, the head of the Court of Instruction 26 of Madrid assures that the expressions expressed that day “they do not constitute incitement to hatred either to the president of the Government” or to the PSOE and “therefore they should not be pursued” by Justice.

“The most violent act carried out by the attendees was hitting a piñata or cardboard doll, which represents a figure with the appearance of a unibrowed male, with prominent ears and a long nose. In no case “His appearance reproduces the image of the President of the Government.”says the head of the investigating court number 23 of Madrid in the order where the investigation is filed.

The judge has estimated that the facts do not constitute a hate crime and argues that considering them as a crime “it would be detrimental to pluralism, tolerance and the spirit that sustains a democratic society, like ours.

“Perhaps it is not well regarded from a civic point of view, and the language is vulgar and profane, and obviously they could be objectionable from this perspective, but Lack of education is not a crime. It may be unpleasant for the person in question or his supporters, but it is not a crime,” says the judge.
