The Barcelona court has sentenced Marc Fortiana, a moso On leave of absence, is known to be the owner of the security company Double Group, which specialized in the protection of personalities such as soccer player Leo Messi.

Fortiana, along with five others Mosso Another (one of them a Sergeant) of the ARRO stopped a Citroën Xsara in which two youths aged 20 and 22 were traveling at one in the morning. Far from stopping, the two children, who had consumed ganja and smoked, started running at a speed of 65 kmph until they hit a stone. The sentence relates that the escape nearly ran over a policeman, evoking the anger of those now convicted.

In the lengthy judgment, the court points to a contradiction, that they did not offer him medical aid earlier and did not notify an ambulance, and that they in turn believe that the accident was serious. He also insisted that medical experts show that all of the injuries could not have been caused by the accident, and that instead they fit the story of the two young people. One of them suffered ocular fiber nerve loss. Among other details, the ruling ensures that “they hit with one of the tourist’s seat belts” that they cut. He also explains that he started from the vehicle and threw the loudspeaker sound system on the ground to scare them.
