Two mossos d’esquadra arrested for illegal detention and torture

Police from the Internal Affairs Division of the Mossos d’Esquadra arrested two agents this Thursday in Barcelona for the crimes of illegal detention, torture and injuries, as reported by the Catalan police in a statement.

In a concise note, the Mossos have explained that four other agents are being investigated and that the two detainees will go to court “in the next few hours”.

According to the Mossos, the events occurred during a police action in Barcelona at the end of 2021.
