THE Hospital Bola Azul in Almeria City was graffitied recently but the person responsible will not be arrested.The new and highly unpopular Ley de Seguridad Ciudadana – Public Safety Law – has been dubbed the Gag Law, owing to its draconian response to unauthorised demonstrations with eye-watering fines ranging from €30,000 to €600,000.But under this same law, graffiti artists can no longer be charged with a criminal offence, although they do face fines that start at €100 and go to €1,000.Whoever was responsible for the Bola Azul pintadas could still find themselves out of pocket if tracked down – but they will stay out of jail, too.
