Writer in court for pretending to shoot King

A WRITER who pretended to shoot at the King on Catalan regional TV has been summonsed in court.

Jair Dominguez and the presenter of the programme, Bibiana Ballbe, could be charged with crimes against the Crown for the programme in which he pretended to shoot at a silhouette of King Juan Carlos and other famous people, including Prince Charles of England.

They have not been charged but they are recommended to attend the hearing accompanied by their lawyers.

The programme aired on October 9, 2012, and was reported by union Manos Limpias. The director of the programme resigned after it came to light, saying that the images were against ethical and democratic principles. The TV channel said it rejects “all references to violence”, removed the images from its website and promised not to show them again.
