Juan Pablo Torroija was detained in the city of Girona. A few hours later he ended up in hospital. He was beaten and carried marks of strangulation. The police says he hanged himself in his cell. But evidence raises doubts about this version of the facts.

The following is a translation. The original article can be found here:

A few hours after being detained by the Spanish police the Argentinian Juan Pablo Torroija entered the hospital on July 11 in the city of Girona. He was strangled and covered with multiple bruises. Three days later he died. According to the official version he hanged himself at the police station. “We called a friend of his in Barcelona to go there to see what was going on. We did not get any news from him for two weeks. Nobody informed us about his death. This friend knew from someone else that the cops had beaten him badly while being detained”, Ana Sol, Juan Pablo’s sister yesterday told Pagina12. Torroija was an activist of the Okupa movement and he was with the Indignados in Barcelona. He left Barcelona at the end of 2011 after a series of evictions. His family requests a new autopsy and asks to be plaintiff in the court case. They also do the formalities so the Argentinian Embassy would join them in their claim to clarify his death.
