FOUR policemen from Níjar were in high court this week facing charges of abuse.

A German resident claims he was wrongfully arrested and beaten up in 2014 following an Easter parade and is seeking prison sentences for ‘torture and illegal detention’.

The incident occurred when Cluse Krings was overheard saying “here come the fascists” as the procession passed by, while sat with his wife in a bar.

He claims that this led to “an exchange of words” with one of the officers, resulting in a scuffle breaking out between the two.

Police then took Krings to the station, but he claims that on the way he was taken down a dark alley and beaten up, causing among other injuries – a perforated ear drum.

The police deny the use of excessive force and state that a drunk Krings had to be restrained after “reacting violently” towards the officers.
