The investigations are advancing by leaps and bounds. The identifications of the nationalist radicals who attacked the municipal government of Pamplona during the San Fermín procession are taking place with extraordinary speed. So much so that, as sources of the investigations explained to EL MUNDO, it is noted that arrests will take place in the next few hours.
These sources explain that progress is currently being made in the study of all the images collected on the incidents. Because, in addition, in the hot zone, on Curia Street, they were infiltrated by the radical agents of the Municipal Police and the National Police, who also obtained images of the disturbances and who are actively participating in the identification of the perpetrators of the insults, shoves, salivazos, threats and aggressions.
According to these sources, many of those identified are known to the nationalist left, who appear both in the files of the Police and the Civil Guard: “They are classics.” These sources explain that the exchange of information between the different bodies is being “fast and impeccable”. They point out that many of those who were in the tumult were even acquaintances of the Bildu representatives, with whom they exchanged greetings and knowing smiles while the UPN representatives were threatened, insulted and attacked.
These sources explain that the arrests will affect those who have participated in the attacks. In the incidents, three municipal police officers were injured. The rest, those who have threatened and insulted, can face administrative sanctions that carry severe fines.
Those responsible for the security of the parties consider that the violence that occurred yesterday “is much greater than that of other years. There was greater aggressiveness.” The cry that prevailed: “UPN kanpora”.
The object of the harassers: UPN representatives and members of the Church, who, for the first time, asked the agents to escort them to the entrance of the Church for fear of being cornered and attacked. “That aggressiveness with the priests was unprecedented,” these police officers point out.
As they explain, the police action had two objectives. The first, to encapsulate the entire entourage to try to avoid aggression. But also, a second plane: to avoid confrontations between the abertzales and those who were in Curia street to applaud their representatives. “It is that the fear that they would come to blows was clear,” point out these sources, who recall that entire families attend that procession.
They insist that the identification of the most radical is advancing steadily and that the incidents will be prosecuted, “because they are attacks on authority.” They do not rule out, even, that the arrests occur during the holidays, which are in their second day.
