The judge considered there was no altercation or public order crime, since no acts of violence were detected or directly assaults nor incited violence towards the participants in the activity.
According to the report of events on August 2, 2016 the five people being investigated organized a 'flashmob' consisting of around 100 people running along “Paseo del Mar”, which produced "a stampede resulting in material and personal damages” for witnesses and establishments.
The police report included statements from people injured and those being investigated, following the conduct which is the subject of this case does not meet the typical characteristics of a crime against public order.
In short, for the judge, the conduct of the street entertainers, despite being "unfortunate and reckless", has no place within the criminal sanction area.
FECASARM exercised popular accusation in this case, saying the decision was "precipitated" because there wasn’t enough evidence to precede, such as statements from many of the injured, as was explained by its secretary general, Joaquim Boadas. Fecasarm will appeal this decision because in addition they consider the judicial resolution "does not conform to legislation" because they understand acts of violence occurred and there was a breach of peace.
