A YOUNG, right-wing politician was allegedly beaten up outside her home in Cuenca (Castilla-La Mancha) because of her political beliefs. 

Nineteen-year-old Inmaculada Sequí is the president of the Cuenca branch of Vox, a populist, hard-right split from the conservative Partido Popular. Her beating was been described as a “despicable act” by Spanish Interior Minister Jorge Fernández Díaz on Wednesday (August 26).

Sequí was leaving home on Tuesday morning when she says she was approached by three people, who she thinks were a woman and two men, who called her “a fascist,” then punched and kicked her to the ground.

She was admitted to hospital later that day, at 2pm in the afternoon. 

Speaking to the Spanish press after being released from hospital, the politician said: “I am not afraid, it will not stop me. I’m going to continue to defend the ideas of Vox.”

She also speculated on whether her vocal support for bullfighting on social networks may have been the trigger for the attack.

Sequí’s father reported the incident to the police.
