The Madrid Prosecutor’s Office requests a year in prison for Daniel Sancho for the alleged commission of a crime of injuries in relation to an attack that occurred in November 2019 on José Abascal street in Madrid.

This is stated in a letter from April 2020, to which he had access Europa Pressin which the prosecutor asked the investigating judge to proceed with the opening of an oral trial, a procedure that already took place by order in November 2021. The procedure is pending appointment for prosecution.

The son of actor Rodolfo Sancho has been in preventive prison in Thailand since August 7 for the murder and dismemberment of Edwin Arrieta Arteaga, a crime that he confessed to before the Thai Police.

Regarding the alleged injuries, the prosecutor has refused to request Thailand to extradite the young man to be tried in Spain for these events from 2019.

According to the document, the accused, around 4 a.m. on November 9, 2019, was in the vicinity of José Abascal Street in this capital, when “at a certain moment he proceeded to get into a taxi vehicle that was there, without respecting the queue that had formed to use the public service”.

At that time, he was reprimanded by JC. After that, “the accused, with the intention of injuring, proceeded to punch him in the head, causing injuries that took twelve days to heal.” The injured man suffered aesthetic damage due to the breakage of his upper right incisor tooth.

The prosecutor qualifies the facts as a crime of injuries provided for and punishable in article 147.1 of the Penal Code. The accused is responsible for the aforementioned crime as author in accordance with articles 27 and 28.1 of the penal code.

Rejects extradition

In his recent writing, the prosecutor opposes extradition because there are “alternative” measures that would allow the trial to be held and also explains that “there is no evidence” that the accused’s stay in Thailand seeks to escape from Spanish Justice because “there is always has been at the disposal of the Court in all the summons received”.

For its part, the Prosecutor’s Office recalls that in the procedure opened in Spain, no reasoned order of imprisonment has been issued in any procedural phase, “nor is it possible at the present time to request it.”
