The judge of the National CourtJoaquin Gadea The investigation for the attack committed by Yassin Kanjaa on April 25 in Algeciras (Cádiz), in which the sacristan of the Church of Nuestra Señora de la Palma died and the parish priest and other people were injured.

The magistrate qualifies the facts as a crime of terrorist murder, punishable with reviewable permanent imprisonment, and terrorist injuries, with a penalty of up to 15 years in prison.

The judge considers that what happened was a consequence of the “radicalization” process suffered during the previous weeks, “being able to classify the events as a jihadist attack against priests of the Catholic Church and Muslims who do not follow the guidelines of the Salafi precepts aimed at seriously alter public peace by provoking a state of terror in the population or part of it”.

To do this, the magistrate has relied on the police reports and statements, the statements of witnesses and injured parties, that of the person under investigation, as well as the expert reports and the documentation collected during these months of investigation.

The judge includes a Europol intelligence report in which “the attack is contextualized, relating it to other terrorist actions carried out in Europe and which had temples or people of the Christian religion as their specific objectives.” Specifically, he mentions several attacks in European countries, mainly France.
