Court subpoenas three Valencia fans for racist insults to Vini Jr

The holder of the Investigative Court 10 of Valencia called as investigated the three young people aged between 18 and 21 arrested last Tuesday as alleged authors of a hate crime, for having uttered racist insults to the Brazilian striker Vinicius Junior, from Real Madrid, last Sunday, at the Mestalla stadium.

The instructor will also take testimony via videoconference, as the injured party, from the player, informed the Superior Court of Justice of the Valencian Community in a statement in which the date of said appearances is not informed.

Prior to this declaration, the three investigated must appear before the judicial body to be instructed on the rights that assist them in the application of article 118 of the Criminal Procedure Law.

The court opened the process after receiving a report of a possible hate crime prepared by the Information Brigade of the Higher Headquarters of the Police of the Valencian Community.

These preliminary procedures were joined by a complaint for the same facts presented by the National Professional Football League, an entity that has already been included in the process as a private accusation.

Likewise, the instructor agreed to communicate the initiation of the case to the Public Prosecutor’s Office and issue a request to the Madrid courts to enable the necessary technical means to allow Vini Jr to take a statement via videoconference, as an injured party.

On the other hand, in response to the investigation procedures requested by the League in its complaint, the dispatch reflects that the recorded images of the incidents have already been collected and examined by the National Police and have been incorporated into the report.

However, the magistrate decided to send a letter to Valencia CF in order to urge them to keep this audiovisual material, from the 72nd minute of the game, in case it had to be requested at any time during the investigation.

The court will also summon the Valencia club to identify some security guards who were working on the day of the game, in order to summon them to testify as witnesses.
