Accused of the crime of injury, he stated from the outset that he accepted his responsibility for having slapped the complainant, but that he had no involvement in any other act. The sentence confirmed this.
Charged with resisting arrest, the judge dismissed his case and ordered that the officers who arrested him be prosecuted, which led to a subsequent oral trial. He was not convicted, but according to what he told me he did not care about that.
Accused of inducement to prostitution and a crime against workers’ rights, he was remanded in custody and at the end of the trial, and even before the sentence was announced, I learned of his acquittal and release when I met him in the street and heard the news.
