The mixed Court number one of Barbate (Cádiz) has agreed to release with charges the two men who were arrested when they were going to pick up in Sotogrande in a vehicle the six crew members of the drug boat that hit a Civil Guard patrol boat and caused the death of two agents last Friday in the port of Barbate.
The other six detainees continue to testify before the judicial authority since they arrived around 10:30 a.m. this Monday, as reported by the Civil Guard.
These two Spaniards are 34 and 54 years old and have a history of drug trafficking and smuggling. They were arrested on the first day of the events for alleged crimes of concealment and serious resistance to authority, when they were intercepted when they were going to pick up the crew of the drug boat in a vehicle after they ran aground on the boat on a beach in La Línea. .
Upon leaving the Court, they have defended that "they were not doing anything", that "they have not killed anyone" and that they were not on board the boat that ran over the two agents.
The other six detainees continue to give statements. Among them is a 46-year-old resident of La Línea de la Concepción, identified as F.J.M.P. and known as "Kiko the Goat", with a history of resistance to authority, disobedience and money laundering and who allegedly piloted the drug gang.
Also testifying at this time is J.I.A.B., 39 years old, with no criminal record but numerous infractions, almost all for possession and consumption of narcotic substances; M.C., 24 years old and with no criminal record; and three other crew members, aged 21, 24 and 28, with a history of drug trafficking, attack on an authority officer, injuries, crimes against property and money laundering; now facing two alleged crimes of homicide and serious injuries to law enforcement agents. All of them would be Spanish nationals except M.C., 24 years old, who is a Moroccan subject, as reported by the Civil Guard.
The deceased agents are Miguel Ángel González Gómez, 39 years old, a native of the Cadiz municipality of San Fernando, member of the Group of Underwater Activities Specialists (GEAS), with a partner and a daughter; and David Pérez Carracedo, 43 years old, native of Barcelona, member of the Rapid Action Group (GAR), with a wife and two children.
Both were fired by their colleagues, family and authorities at the funerals held in the cathedrals of Cádiz and Pamplona. The two deceased agents have been recognized with the posthumous award of the Golden Cross of the Order of Merit of the Civil Guard.
