The leader of Más País refuses to retract his statements
MADRID, 7 Mar. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The leader of Más País, Íñigo Errejón, has refused this Tuesday to reach an agreement with the resident of Lavapiés - who accused him of having kicked him on the night of May 2, 2021 - due to the conciliation demand that he presented in against him for the alleged commission of a crime of slander and libel, as confirmed by legal sources to Europa Press.
It was last October when the resident of Lavapiés filed a conciliation claim in the Madrid Courts for alleged crimes of slander and insults, considering that Errejón violated his honor by accusing him in various interventions in the media of making a false complaint and describe him, in the words of the plaintiff, as an "extreme right-wing nerd".
Errejón has refused to retract these statements in the conciliation act that took place this Tuesday in the Court of First Instance Number 1 of Madrid, where he was summoned at 9:30 a.m. for these events.
In his letter, the complainant recounted that the Errejón demonstrations would have occurred after the Provincial Court of Madrid confirmed last September the sentence handed down by the Investigating Court Number 16 of Madrid that acquitted the leader of the minor crime of mistreatment of which he was accused for not being "accredited that he gave a kick."
According to legal sources, the leader of Más País understands that he should not pay any compensation requested by the complainant, of 25,000 euros, nor a retraction of the qualifications towards it.
Íñigo Errejón has not personally appeared at the conciliation act -as he is not obliged to do so- but his lawyer and solicitor did. On the other hand, the man who denounced it has been present and, after ending without agreement, legal sources have confirmed that the legal actions that proceed will be initiated.
The complainant has already advanced that, in the event that Errejón did not recognize or accept the terms demanded, he would file a complaint against him for "crimes of slander and libel."
