National policemen apologize for performance of 1-O referendum and criticize direction of Mossos
A judge opens an investigation for burdens because it considers that re was "affectation of coexistence"
The government delegate in Catalonia, Enric Millo, apologized this morning for performance of Guardia Civil and national Police during referendum convened by Generalitat on 1 October.
"When I have seen pictures, and I know re are people who have been beaten, shoved and even re is a person in hospital, I can only apologize on behalf of agents who intervened," said Millo, whom independenceists have pointed out as One of Chargers.
"I can't do anything but regret it," he said, but he also asked to take into account that "of 2,315 schools, was acted to recover electoral material." "The objective, instructions given were not to go for people, was to go for election material," he insisted.
Millo has reported for first time that re were 13 schools of se 2,315 in which agents who entered found a difficulty in entrance, with a human barrier in which re were also activists, "some with sharp objects, because I have seen with my eyes" Some dresses of those who wear cracked agents, I've seen bites, I saw a broken leg by one that Rams to a civil Guard with a quad, I saw a broken arm, fingers. He recounts Millo, along with activists, in human barrier, "There were older people, children, youth, physically handicapped." In many of se cases police did not enter. or difficulty y faced was that in some places y were allowed to enter but not leave: "Then re is a lot of pressure, each time circle is smaller and if y consider ir physical integrity to be in jeopardy, y have to break through, and to break through re is what is technically called use of force." That force "sure causes a coup, a purple, a push, or can cause a big damage," explained Enric Millo.
The government delegate has added that he is not happy with images, that he reproduced in media around world: "If someone thinks I liked him, he is mistaken." "Observed alone can only generate rejection."
In any case, Millo has ensured in an interview in TV3 that ultimate culprit of this police performance was Generalitat, who refused to obey court order to annul referendum.A judge opens an investigation for burdens because it considers that re was "affectation of coexistence"
