PAMPLONA, 11 Feb. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The widow of David Pérez Carracedo, a civil guard who died after being run over by a 'drug boat' in Barbate (Cádiz), refused this Sunday, during the funeral chapel held at the Civil Guard Headquarters in Pamplona, to allow the Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, was the one who placed a medal on the coffin.
As confirmed to Europa Press by several attendees at the funeral chapel, Marlaska went to pick up the medal carried by a civil guard agent to place it in the coffin. At that time, the widow expressed her disagreement with the fact that the minister was the one who carried out this act, alleging that her husband "would not have wanted this."
According to these same sources, some attendees have applauded the widow. Finally, it was the agent wearing the medal who was in charge of placing it in the coffin where the deceased agent was.
David Pérez Carracedo, 43 years old, was a resident of the Navarrese town of Sarriguren, where he lived with his wife and two children, ages 9 and 6. He was part of the Rapid Action Group of the Civil Guard.
