Some of this material was sent to a woman with 87% visual impairment via WhatsApp via mobile phone and Facebook Messenger linked to an official phone number for the Civil Guard.

Affect disclosure to your personal documents. In his appeal, he claimed that he did not cause any harm to the administration or citizens.and the sanction is not proportionate.

The decision concluded that there were very serious criminal elements involving committing a crime. convicted intentional crimecausing serious harm to the administration and citizens in connection with the service (Article 7, Article 13 of the Civil Guard Disciplinary Regime).


He found that the appellant’s behavior “not only clearly conflicted with the fundamental principles of action of members of the State Security Forces, Absolute respect for legality, dignity, honesty and integrity in their actions“It is an insult to the reputation and public image of the institution and causes serious damage to the prestige and dignity of the institution, which will irreparably undermine the legitimate trust of citizens in the institution.”

“As set out in the impugned decision, the appellant’s conduct is in direct conflict with the good manners and dignity required by his membership in the Civil Guard, whose members are fully preached to the extra code of ethics and morality required of all members. Forces and Civil Guard,” underlines the Chamber.
