ABSOLVED: Prosecutors said the girls did nothing illegal, photo credit: VeraGRV, via Youtube
YOUTH prosecutors said they will close a case against two girls who made a music video partially filmed in Almeria City Cathedral without permission after finding no evidence of criminality.
Prosecutors opened the case into Vera GRV and Kttana, who together form the Vera GRV X Kttana ‘trap’ group, after receiving a complaint from cathedral authorities about the Obsesionado video.
The video, posted to YouTube in October, features scenes with the two girls dancing in the cathedral.
Authorities there said the girls, aged 17 at the time, had asked to be let into the building to work on a university project.
Youth prosecutors said the girls had being disrespectful to the feelings of religious people but ruled they had not desecrated the site.
No ceremony was taking place at the time the video was made and the girls were using the cathedral as a backdrop without directly insulting Catholicism, prosecutors added.
“The accused did not touch anything, nothing was altered and they did not carry out any obscene or grotesque act. They also did not come into contact with any sacred object,” prosecutors said.
The Bishopric of Almeria City had previous told police the girls had caused offence to the entire Catholic community with the video.
“The video is a serious offence to the sacred and sacramental nature of the mother church of the diocese. It was unacceptable religious desecration,” the Bishopric said.
A separate case against the girls is still pending in an Almeria court. That case continues.
