The magistrates of the Civil and Criminal Chamber of the Superior Court of Justice of Aragon have confirmed the sentence handed down by the Provincial Court of Teruel that condemned Igor the Russian the penalty of reviewable permanent prison for the murder of Víctor Jesús CE already 50 years in prison for two crimes of murder, Víctor RP and José Luis IA. (25 years for each of them).
In the sentence, made public today, the magistrates of the Civil and Criminal Chamber of the Superior Court of Justice of Aragon dismiss the appeal filed by the lawyer from Norbert F. against the sentence of the Provincial Court of Teruel thus confirming the decision issued.
Among the different motives for appeal presented by the defense of Norbert F. the court does not share the defense argument According to which there is no direct or indirect evidence of the charge, because the Civil Guard agents were armed and were able to effectively resist the attack since they outnumbered Norbert F.
On this reason, the court understands that treachery is present in the three homicides given the “inexistence of defense possibilities” that these people had when they were attacked from behind and from their hidden position. Regarding the motive for cruelty, they also argue that in the process The desire to cause greater suffering than the victims, both because the weapons were completely unloaded on the victims and because of the location of some bullet wounds. For this reason, they conclude that “in the present case, singular pain has been inflicted on the victims, using a cruel homicidal methodology.”
Regarding the argument of the defense attorney that the existence of an attack crime committed on the persons of the two civil guards should not have been observed because They were dressed in civilian clothes and the vehicle they used was not identifiable, the magistrates respond that “although such identifying circumstances are not present, there may be others, as is the case in this case, that are valued by the Jury and exposed in the appealed judgment, and that lead, without a doubt, the accused to know that he was in front of authorities when he fired at them ”.
The court therefore understands that it has been established that “the accused had no doubts about the status of Civil Guard agents of his victims when without giving them time to draw their weapons, shoots them hidden from behind the vehicle, and then finishes them off “so they also deny that the accused could have acted in legitimate defense as explained by his lawyer in the appeal. Against the sentence handed down by the Civil and Criminal Chamber, there is an appeal for cassation before the Supreme Court, an appeal that must be presented within a period of five days.
