Arteaga Pérez later explained in a transmission on Facebook that they entered the concert considering that “it was an opportunity for us to exercise our right to freedom of expression” to vindicate the fight for the freedom of the regime’s political prisoners.

“We didn’t interrupt the concert,” he says. According to his account, when the duo finished the second song, Nodarse got up and yelled “Israel Rojas.” Within seconds, men in the room ran towards them, surrounded them and began to beat them.

Arteaga Pérez denounced that the agents punched and kicked them in various parts of the body, and also took away the cell phones with which they were transmitting. Spanish security set up a retaining wall and asked them to leave the hall for the concert to continue.

“But we said that without our phones we were not going to go out. One, because this is not Cuba, two because it is a crime and three because all our private information is there,” explains the doctor, who recalls that the agents committed a crime by wanting to confiscate mobile phones in Europe.

“Miraculously they send us the cell phones from hand to hand among the people in the public and they reach the table where we were,” he said. At that moment they decided to leave the room and called the Spanish Police, who received the complaint and is now under investigation.
