The Court of Instruction number 3 of Cuenca has initiated preliminary proceedings to determine if the group of women 'Yeguada Latinoamericana' committed a crime against religious sentiments, by carrying out a 'performance' on May 16 in which they posed half-naked at the gates of the cathedral and at least two other temples in the city.
The judge indicates in the order that "the facts present characteristics that suggest the possible existence of a crime against religious sentiments" and agrees to open proceedings to identify the people participating in this 'performance'.
Specifically, in the church of San Antón, the National Police was alerted and found a woman disguised as if she were the Virgin, along with five other people by her side who were crouched and half-naked, with a braid of hair that covered so much the opening of the two buttocks as that of the genitals.
The president of the Spanish Foundation of Christian Lawyers, Poland Castellanos, who filed the lawsuit, considers that "all these types of offensive acts against Catholics cannot go unpunished." “We will ask for a sanction and to investigate where they received the financing to carry out this act,” she adds.
'Yeguada Latinoamericana' is an artistic collective directed by Cheril Linett that since 2017 has called on women to participate in actions in public spaces, using a mare's tail "as a counter-sexual prosthesis."
