First complaint against Rubiales for the non-consensual kiss to Jenni Hermoso

Indignation and embarrassment of others for that kiss. The avalanche of criticism of Luis Rubiales for kissing Jenni Hermoso on the mouth grows and grows. From demanding his public apology, by Minister Iceta, to requesting her resignation, by Adriana Lastra. Her unusual reaction, with her “bullshit, assholes, and nerds” insults, and her tepid public apology afterwards are not convincing. Rubiales, president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation, his time has come and he has been denounced before the Higher Sports Council. He has filed the complaint Miguel Galán, director of the CENAFE training center for coaches. Top photo, this Tuesday the 22nd at La Moncloa, where he was received by Pedro Sánchez.

The complaint was made this Monday, August 21, before the Higher Sports Council (CSD) “for breach of Sports Law 39/2022 for the sexist act of the kiss on the mouth of Rubiales towards the soccer player Jennifer Hermoso”. An act that took place on the podium of the Sydney stadium during the official delivery of the 2023 Women’s World Cup.

The Spanish Football Federation itself has a protocol against sexual violence in football. This protocol expressly pursues “forcibly kissing on the mouth” and details “immediate” consequences if this occurs.
