Legal sources have confirmed to Europa Press that the reinforcement magistrate of the Central Court of Instruction Number 6 will continue the questioning of other witnesses on March 21 and 24. These are subpoenas that he agreed to on January 31, the same day that he urged that it be carried out a psychiatric exam of the alleged jihadist, Yassine Kanjaa, for the purpose of reporting on his imputability.
The instructor had initially summoned the witnesses between February 15 and 17, although the statements of, among others, the roommates of the alleged perpetrator of the attack or the Salesian priest Antonio Rodríguez Lucena, who was attacked and injured in the church of San Isidro de Algeciras, will take place this month.
