Córdoba prosecutors remand in custody 35 accused of looting

Prosecutors in the city of Córdoba have decreed that 35 people accused of participating in a wave of looting and robberies between December 3 and 4, while local police protested for higher wages, would be remanded in custody while they await charges.

Prosecutor Raúl Garzón dictated the measure against 10 individuals, while colleague José Mana used the same powers to detain a further 25, it was announced earlier today.

Mana argued, on ordering preventative custody, that those accused "took over the streets with clearly illegal designs, creating a massive public disturbance where people and property were in a state of total helplessness, due to the lack of police personnel."

The prosecutor considered the events "particularly serious," because "social peace and the people's wellbeing, drawn from the confidence that they could live in an ambience of social peace, [has been damaged], which is why acts of indiscriminate vandalism in that context caused a collective panic which gravely affected everyday life."
