More than a dozen arrests in relation to the crime of the young Samuel in A Coruña

In the death of Samuel, the 24-year-old who lost his life at dawn on Saturday in A Coruña after receiving a beating in the street, a group of more than ten people is involved. After the first punch, a group of at least four people kept kicking him on the ground until Samuel stopped moving. This is indicated by the investigations launched by the police that have already arrested a first group of seven people, who were joined by another five later. All of them are already in police stations.

In order to find the whereabouts of the suspects, the contribution of a witness has been essential who, minutes after the fatal attack, called 092 to say that he had seen a group of people escape from the scene, leaving Samuel dying on the ground. . This testimony also introduces the first clues about the aggressors, since the complainant declares to the police that the aggressors come from the Coruña neighborhood of Elviña and gives details about one of them, who offers his surname, by which he is identified in that zone.

Specifically, the investigation focuses its investigations on three couples and a seventh person who is directly related to the aggression and the subsequent abandonment of the young man on the floor of the Coruña promenade.

According to sources from the Government Delegation, for the moment the homophobic nature of the crime is ruled out and the facts are related to a discussion due to a misunderstanding with a mobile phone. According to this first version, Samuel was having a video call with some friends and the attackers interpreted that he was recording them. From there, the beating that ends the life of the young man follows, always according to the first investigations of the agents.

Despite the above, the version about the homophobic nature of the beating has spread in the conversation on social networks and in the messages that politicians and leaders of LGTBI movements have spread in recent hours. The Avante LGTB + organization has called for this Monday a series of concentrations throughout Galicia to demonstrate its rejection of Samuel’s death and demand that the relationship of the crime with the victim’s sexual orientation be clarified.

Political reactions

“All my love and support for Samuel’s family and friends. And all my condemnation of this hate crime. We want a country free of violence where everyone feels free for who they are. Let #JusticiaParaSamuel be done”, The Minister of Social Rights and Agenda 2030 and Secretary General of Podemos, Ione Belarra, has pointed out.

Also the Minister of Equality, Irene Montero, has condemned the murder and has sent her “affection” to the family and loved ones of the young man “in these difficult moments.” “We must build among all of us a freer society in which we do not leave room for hatred,” he added.

Likewise, Eduardo Rubiño, president of the Parliamentary Group of Más Madrid in the Madrid Assembly, has spoken, asking “that every detail be clarified and that there be justice.” “His friends insist on the homophobic component of the beating that killed him and if confirmed we would be facing a before and after in the escalation of LGTBIphobia in our country,” he warned.
