The widow of David Pérez Carracedocivil guard who died after being run over by a ‘drug boat’ in Barbate (Cádiz), Has refused this Sunday, during the funeral chapel that was held at the Civil Guard Headquarters in Pamplona, for the Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, to be the one to place a medal on the coffin.
As confirmed to Europa Press by several attendees at the funeral chapel, Marlaska went to pick up the medal carried by a civil guard agent to place it in the coffin. At that time, the widow expressed her disagreement with the fact that it was the minister who carried out this act, alleging that her husband “would not have wanted this.”
According to these same sources, some attendees applauded the widow. Finally, it was the agent wearing the medal who was in charge of placing it in the coffin where the deceased agent was.
David Pérez Carracedo, 43 years old, was a resident of the Navarrese town of Sarriguren, where he lived with his wife and two children, ages 9 and 6. He was part of the Rapid Action Group of the Civil Guard.
For its part, the Ministry of the Interior has communicated that “It is an intimate ceremony and we are not going to comment on it. We understand the pain”.
