VOX’S leader in Denia has reacted to accusations of being a ‘f**king Nazi’ after he refused to stand during a minute’s silence for an expat murdered in her sleep by an ex-partner.

Félix Redondo – whose Vox party in Denia does not hold a council seat – said he felt ‘threatened’ by the public denouncements after he and another member remained seated during an act of remembrance for murdered Russian national Helena, 44, last October.

The leader of the attacks on Redondo was Basili Salort, ex-mayor of El Verger, and leader of the municipal Compromís party.

Salort tweeted: “F**king Nazi, no one will cry when they come for you.”

It came after Denia held a minute’s silence outside the town hall following the brutal assassination in which Helena’s ex-partner scaled a 2nd floor apartment with a ladder holding a butcher’s knife.

Ramon – who later claimed in court he ‘couldn’t remember the attack’ – asked Helena’s 11-year-old daughter to phone an ambulance before he plunged the knife into her throat while she was sleeping.

It is customary in Spain to hold a minute’s silence for victims of male violence. Helena was the 1,023rd woman to die at the hands of a current or former male partner since records began in 2003.

The far-right party Vox, however, are opposed to gender violence laws that mete out stricter punishment for men who abuse their female partners than the reverse – despite overwhelming statistics highlighting male predisposition to aggression.

When contacted by Marina Plaza, Salort refused to renounce ‘not even a comma’ of his controversial Tweet.

“I’m just saying that, if one day they go after him, I won’t cry,” he said.
