Petrer police don’t see the joke as woman faces ‘Gag Law’ fine

WHEN she saw a police car in a disabled parking space, a Petrer resident decided to photograph it.
She uploaded the photo to the Facebook page “No eres de Petrer si no…” (You’re not from Petrer unless…) and added the caption “You park where you damn well want and don’t get a fine,” and made matters worse by managing to incorporate the word “cojones” too.
Now the resident is the one in trouble under Spain’s Public Safety Law, which is also known as the ‘Gag Law,’ as she faces prosecution under the new legislation and a fine of up to €3,000 for using “unauthorised images or personal details” of the security forces.
