Nobody deliberately set fire to the vehicle of Josep Bou, the leader of the PP in the Barcelona City Council. According to the journalist Anna Punsí, the Mossos have certified that it was due to a car breakdown. In fact, Bou’s driver was alerted by a patrol that the vehicle was leaking liquid and was smoking moments before the fire.

When Bou discovered the incident, he encouraged the idea that his car had been set on fire deliberately, despite the fact that the Guàrdia Urbana had already pointed to a probable car breakdown. “I announce that nothing will stop me from fulfilling my duty and my work,” said the popular position.
High officials from Ciudadanos, PP and Vox and even the Jusapol police union quickly joined the thesis of an alleged attack. “I hope that those responsible for this savagery are found and they pay for what they have done. A big hug ”, wrote the president of C’s, Inés Arrimadas, on the same social network.
The incident occurred on Saturday around 11 a.m. in the morning on Calle del Santuari, next to Plaza Salvador Allende, in the neighborhood of Horta-Guinardó. The Barcelona City Police and Fire Brigade traveled to the area and were able to quickly put out the flames from the vehicle, which caused no injuries.
