This case looks similar to Alessio del Sordo case in itali, also victim of the state terrorism.
Alfonso Fernández Ortega, Alfonso, a 21-year-old neighbor of Vallecas in Madrid, left his home early on Wednesday November 14. There was one morning but that of 14N, day of the general strike. He was addressing to an informational picket, accompanied by his girlfriend. He planned to meet at a time with his mother and his uncle, that also support the strike actively. But Elena Ortega, the mother, could not locate him: a hundred yards from his house, Alfonso and his girlfriend were arrested . She was released with charges and must appear in court twice a month. Alfon spent in pretrial detention and meets in Soto del Real prison [Madrid] in what can be considered a penalty early to the sentence.More information in spanish.
Preventive detention is a precautionary measure applied in cases that produce great social alarm. It's what the judge argued to send Alfon to prison, although it seems more alarm caused his arrest, and even what seems to be pursuing this case. Many accuse him of mounting police, allegedly to divert attention from the success of the general strike in Vallecas, where the closure of small businesses reached almost 100%.
Police said Alfon carrying a bag with gasoline at the time of his arrest, he denies end: "I'm calm because I have not done anything, I know I'm a scapegoat, that the purpose of the police was another and have used me for it. " He has told to his mother in one of the few visits that have allowed in jail. An arrest that seems not be fortuitous as Elena Ortega is a well-known activist in Vallecas neighborhood.
In an interview with the program Todo por la Causua [all for the cause] of Tele K, Vallecas local television, she says her son and his girlfriend refused to testify without counsel present and therefore suffered psychological torture: they were interrogated every two hours by hooded men threatened them doing "horrible things" to their families. As any statement failed, police decided to search at home. Elena realize that when five hooded policemen also appeared at dawn at home, trying to frighten she and her husband, also threatening them with what would happen to his son. She was adamant: "It is clear that we are leftists. Here are my republican flag, my shirt from the public school, the kind of books I have. But we are not terrorists. "
A Alfon has been applied F.I.E.S. Regime (Jail internal files and tratments), which involves isolation (called "prison within the prison"), restricts communications (can only receive a visit from his family) and controls its correspondence. It applies to the prison system inmates considered "dangerous", usually people belonging to armed gangs or drug lords. The High Court itself considers FIES illegal, violate the rights of prisoners and competencies overdo regulations. That has been applied to Alfon go on the same line of their detention: the criminalization of youth organized, critical and demanding through a nearby young antifascist groups and fan Rayo Vallecano Football Club. Bukaneros headquarters, supporters of this team declaring "racism, repression and football business", was also under policial search.
According to Elena Ortega and Bukaneros, which later issued a statement, the Ministry of Interior and the Government Office will undergo unprecedented persecution from 25-S because banners denouncing parties take, for example, that the Congress of the Deputies were surrounded by 1,500 police while Cristina Cifuentes's husband is "whereabouts unknown." Also reported that the arrest and imprisonment of Alfon delivery may be a smokescreen to divert attention from the historical manifestations of 14N and charges "disproportionate and inhumane" of the security forces.
Alfon's mother, who took her story to the International Congress Against Repression, organized by Animal Equality and held with great success in Madrid on 6 and 7 December, insists that government want to criminalize young people and working class neighborhoods shaken by the crisis, as Vallecas, Villaverde or Carabanchel neighbordhoods. He complains that are young wich have to deal with a system that denies them the future, kids who have had to leave the university because they can not pay and even vocational training after the rate hike, kids for whom there is no provision either they can enter the labor market. "A youth," he says, "no expectations, cornered, harassed and persecuted by the police."
She resists "the force of reason and truth" because Vallecas known since he was a handful of shacks and knows is the fight what can organize neighborhood. So warns that the mothers of these young people are reaching a limit: "We have given birth with love, have grown up with love and with great respect, and now are suffering thrashing, abuse and expoil. We will begin to react because we are not willing to allow wrecking uor sons. "
Part of the process of destruction is the preventive detention. If a detainee is unprecedented and has a known address, should not go to prison. Nor if no flight risk or can be controlled by imposing a proportional bail. The opposite is to create a prisoner. In this case, for ideological reasons, is a political prisoner. As political as a general strike. http://kaosenlared.net/component/k2/item/40261-alfon-un-preso-pol%C3%ADtico-en-madrid.html
