A man of origin Moroccan has reported having suffered an assault homophobic on Melilla to the cry of “Son of a bitch, they’ve given you a lot of rights here, fag: this is Muslim territory,” “You deserve death for your sins,” or “God is going to send you to hell.” According to complaint the events took place on August 28, when a man crossed paths with the victim in the downtown Torres Quevedo Square and began to look at him “with contempt”, to later begin to utter insults and attack him.

As a result, the young man called the telephone number of emergencies 112, who commissioned a police call, but, before the agents arrived, the individual “He approached it, took it from the front of the T shirt and started hitting him with punching».

The aggressor escaped before the police officers arrived while the victim needed medical assistance for various injuries from a polycontusion; specifically, mandibular of the left maxilla, left and external zygomatic contusion of the knee.


Amlega has asserted that, when he went to Emergencies, the young man saw that «the aggressor came to continue threatening to attack him until he changed his sexual orientation», Which is why he believes that it is also a hate crime case.

The entity that defends the rights of the collective Lgtbi has highlighted that Melilla welcomes many people who have been forced to run away for being gay and the majority come from Morocco, “but many times they are within a few kilometers of those who have discriminated against them.”

In this case, it has highlighted that the victim is afraid to go out on the street since he was a victim of “the beating”, and if he does, it is to visit the association’s headquarters to receive psychological support or with his hair covered, for fear of being recognized again by his aggressor.

Finally, Amlega has denounced that its headquarters have been attacked again, specifically on September 3: «We have been witnesses of a hate crime towards our headquarters. Spitting and urine they filled the exterior decoration of the headquarters ». “We publicly denounce and support anyone who feels threatened or who suffers a hint of violence or hatred for reasons of phobia towards the group,” concluded the association of gays and lesbians in the Spanish city in North Africa.
