Antonio Tejado, María del Monte’s nephew, to prison for violent robberies in homes

After the shock caused by the arrest of Antonio Tejado last Friday, the judge has ordered his imprisonment along with five others of the eight arrested in ‘operation Abjena’ carried out by the Civil Guard. An investigation that has been developing for five months with the aim of dismantling a criminal organization dedicated to theft of homes with violence and intimidation that operated in the Aljarafe of Seville. The Armed Institute places María del Monte’s nephew as the alleged intellectual author of the assault that the singer and her partner suffered at the end of August of last year in her home. It was precisely this violent robbery that gave rise to the investigation.

Both María del Monte and Inmaculada Casal have asked for caution until the judiciary makes a ruling, and, very affected, they have begged for empathy in these difficult moments. “You don’t have to be Seneca, if you want to know how I am, put yourself in my place and you will understand,” expressed the artist. His wife went to her workplace on the program ‘Andalusia in the Afternoon’ and she did not avoid the topic by beginning her intervention by saying that it was “a difficult day because of the news that has emerged in the last few hours.” The journalist confessed that “we have been prolonging this pain for five and a half months” and despite her suffering, she thanked the Civil Guard for their work. “We want to know the truth above all else and the sooner things are known the better,” she said.

During their court appearance, half of the detainees have taken advantage of their constitutional right not to testify, while the rest have only answered questions from their respective lawyers. The case investigates alleged crimes of robbery with violence, illegal detention, injuries, threats and membership in a criminal organization.

The operation, carried out by the Heritage Team of the Organic Unit of the Judicial Police of Seville, belonging to the Seville Command, in collaboration with the Judicial Police Team of Mairena del Aljarafe, was initiated at the end of last August, after the complaint filed by a victim of a robbery that occurred in a home in the Aljarafe region of Seville.

Last Friday the Civil Guard detained Antonio Tejado as part of an operation in which at least eight people were arrested in different parts of the Seville capital and in several towns in the province. The arrests responded to an investigation aimed at dismantling a gang dedicated to robberies with violence and intimidation in homes in the Aljarafe region, the metropolitan area of ​​Seville.

The Civil Guard had been following the investigations for several months to dismantle this organization in which the majority of its members are of Portuguese origin and whose criminal resume would include the robberies of the ‘La Alegría’ farm, home of Sergio Ramos and Pilar Rubio, while their four children, ages 9, 8, 5 and 3, were inside, on September 20, and that of María del Monte and Inmaculada Casal’s house during the last week of August, also while they were inside.

The robbery of María del Monte’s house happened around 5:20 in the morning on August 25. The artist and her partner, the journalist Inmaculada Casal, were inside the home when they were surprised by the assailants. Both are in good condition, as verified by emergency teams.
