london - The images of hard police action during the referendum in Catalonia are partly fake. That said the Spanish Foreign Minister Alfonso Dastis told the BBC on Sunday. In addition, according to Dastis, many 'alternative facts' about the police action during the public consultation on October 1 helped the world.
Dastis responded to the international criticism of the violence of police officers during the referendum. It can be seen from the images that the Spanish police force people to leave with ballot boxes. Hundreds of wounded would have fallen. According to Dastis, no excessive violence has been used against people who wanted to vote.
