The Madrid Prosecutor’s Office has opened proceedings for a alleged hate crime of radical Atlético de Madrid fans against a black girl outside the Metropolitan Stadium on September 24, in the run-up to the Madrid derby between Atlético and Real Madrid, as EL PERIÓDICO DE ESPAÑA, from the Prensa Ibérica group, has learned. The opening of the investigation occurs after LaLiga filed a complaint last week regarding these events.
The girl went to the Atlético stadium with a Vinicius t-shirt, Real Madrid soccer player, accompanied by her aunt, a mattress fan, and her mother. In the minutes before the game, a group of ultras rebuked the family and shouted intimidating racist insults at them, which caused them to leave the place without entering the field.
The insults that the girl received
According to the aunt, in an interview on Cadena Ser, individuals wearing clothing identifying the Atlético Front called them insults such as “No Viking”, “monkey”, “fucking black woman” or “get out of here or we’re going to kill the fucking girl”. One of them even grabbed the aunt while there was a “very large crowd of people pointing at the girl, insulting the girl, singing at the girl.”
“She had a terrible anxiety attack. I got her out of there as soon as possible while she covered her shield and shirt. The first night she woke up several times thinking they were coming for her. I had many nightmares. He doesn’t know why everything has happened. “She told me to please not take her to a stadium again,” the girl’s aunt told Ser.
Complaint to the Police
The mother and aunt of the minor reported the incident to the Police, who are now seeking videographic evidence that will allow them to identify the people who carried out the racist insults. LaLiga’s reaction was to file a complaint with the Prosecutor’s Office, which has taken over the investigation and has initiated proceedings to clarify the facts.
Last Wednesday, Real Madrid invited the girl and her family to the Santiago Bernabeu to witness the match between Real Madrid and UD Las Palmas live and meet the squad. Atlético also contacted the family to make themselves available.
This is not the first time that racist incidents have occurred in the surroundings of the Civitas Metropolitano. Last year, Own Vinicius was the focus of hatred of Atlético’s radical fans.
