Spain: Eight members of Spanish Legion prosecuted for covering up the death of a soldier

A military judge has tried a sergeant, a captain, two lieutenants, a corporal and three soldiers of the Spanish Legion for crimes such as concealment, disloyalty, disobedience and obstruction of justice. The Legion members had previously shot tried to cover up after the tried sergeant had shot another soldier.

In a 150-page ruling, the military judge details the accumulation of irregularities that surrounded the exercise in which 21-year-old Mallorcan Legionnaire Alejandro Jiménez Cruz lost his life, and the lies concocted to obstruct the investigation.
