More than 20 years have passed since the allegations of rape and sexual abuse suffered by minors who denounced to the justice system that they were victims of a conspiracy of pedophiles established in the Valencian Community in Spain. Everything is there, testimonies, damning evidences, denunciations of repentants, but the culprits will never be worried. The media will bury the case as usual. It is once again hardly believable and yet this is the hard reality, the one that makes us lose hope in the justice of mankind for good. Rape, network, film, murder, satanic ritual, a summary of the depths of the species and the evil that reigns on earth. Carlos Fabra, Francisco Camps, Bernard Alapetite, Giuseppe Farina, Carlo Bofante, Francisco Roca, Rodolfo Bellés, Manolo Rico “El Cortijero”, Juan Mateu Caldes, Maribel Gil, Sofía Díaz García, Immaculada Marco Macían… These are just some of the names of pedocriminals, torturers and murderers of minors involved in this frightening plot that will certainly remind you of the Dutroux case. The networks do not exist they said … 20 years that criminal proceedings were opened to clarify the rapes and sexual abuse reported by the victims, boys and girls of the north of Castellon (Benicarlo, Vinaros, Rossell …). 20 years that the victims have felt defenseless and powerless in front of the institutions, which should have ensured their protection. Justice, prosecutors, judges, social welfare department, mainstream media, police and civil guard, all closed their eyes to the horror. This is the case of the Espana bar. In 1997, Reinaldo Colas, owner of a hairdressing salon and father of two girls (Aida Colas Adcock and Tamara Colas Adcock), discovered that his children had been sexually exploited by a group of powerful people in the Valencia area. Among others, Giuseppe Farina who is none other than the new partner of the mother of the children. Giuseppe Farina is an Italian businessman and former director of sports clubs. Following legal problems for money laundering and corruption in Italy, he went into exile in Benicarlo in 1996, one year before the beginning of the case and the complaint of Reinaldo. The parties where the children were abused took place in various places such as the Mas del Coll farmhouse and the Espana bar in Benicarlo, two headquarters of a satanic and criminal organization of the most despicable kind. The children who were abused were usually from homes for foster children, including the one in Baix Maestrat de Vinaros. Reinaldo Colas filed a complaint without success, and the case was hushed up by the investigators in charge of the case, including Sergeant Calvino, who later admitted that he had not followed the procedure ordered by the Public Prosecutor. The investigation of the civil parties will show that he deliberately lied, not remembering having received nor heard the Colas girls. He tried to silence the denounced facts of pedocriminality because he knew much more than what he had written in the investigation report. No one was interviewed, no investigation report on the Baix Maestrat residence where the abused children came from, nothing. The judge Sofia Garcia Diaz will close the complaint of Reinaldo Colas who will be sentenced in 2006 to 1 year and 5 months in prison for false accusations against the band of Carlos Fabra and Giuseppe Farina. Yes, you read correctly, the father who publicly accused Fabra during a meeting of being a pedophile was condemned.

In 1999, Reinaldo Colas recorded on hidden camera the confession of a repentant man named Antonio Peraire, who was a doorman at the Espana bar. He explained to the girls’ father how the evenings at the Espana bar went, where the children were taken to be abused. Films were shot upstairs by Bernard Alapetite, a Frenchman already convicted for pedophilia cases, which can be found in the Toro Bravo and Ado71 files. French people resold the videos in France and Giuseppe Farina was in charge of the resale in Italy. Among his declarations, Peraire will also establish a direct link between the Espana bar and the triple murder of Alcacer where 3 young teenagers were massacred in dark circumstances in 1992. He will recognize Antonio Angles and Miguel Ricart, the two alleged murderers who were regulars of the Espana bar, pure chance without doubt. Seven different types of hair were found on the victims that did not belong to the two alleged rapists. The media, such as the newspaper El Razon, manipulated public opinion with the photo of Miguel Ricart on the cover, with the headline “The face of the devil”, in order to continue to believe the story of the isolated rapists. Peraire will also claim to have seen the judge Sofia Diaz Garcia in the bar Espana with the ex-judge Ramon Grau. According to Peraire, Ramon Grau was once angry at the Espana bar with Alicia Martinez, who was a nurse and in an intimate relationship with him, because she did not want to collaborate in their crimes. During a meeting of Carlos Espana, Juan Mateu, Giuseppe Farina, Francisco Rosca and Teresa Montilla, the order to murder the nurse was given. She was found dead on a beach in 1996. According to Peraire, “The manipulation of information for the media was the business of Judge Sofia Garcia Diaz and Captain Santos de Vineros, who organized themselves in the Espana bar with the others on what to publish or not. Judge Diaz, who according to the children participated in the orgies, controlled all the cases involving the Fabra network at that time in order to manipulate the proceedings. She also controlled the appointments to the Residencia de Menores Baix Maestrat de Vinaros, where some of the abused children came from. The children were brought by Giuseppe Farina but also by the director of the center or by an educator. Peraire ended his statements by talking about the murder of a whole family that knew too much, the father having to testify in a hearing against Carlos Fabra for trafficking in counterfeit money.

In 2000, one of Reinaldo’s daughters, then 19 years old, also filed a complaint. She will speak about Farina his father-in-law at the time who would have raped her from 9 to 12 years but also of Carlos Fabra, of an ex-judge Ramoni Jovani Puig alias Ramon Grau, of a José Espana Minguez then owner of the bar Espana in Benisarlo and of Carlos Bonfante then trafficker of cocaine attending the same bar. Thereafter, complaints and evidence in mass. Domingo Maura Ferreres and his brother Miguel Angel Maura Ferreres will file a complaint. Miguel will be analyzed at his exit from the Baix center by a child psychiatrist who will reveal night terrors, but the teams of psychologists who will question him will strangely (or voluntarily) not find the causes of his anguish and his uneasiness. Dennis and Svenja Bercknhawer, interns in the same center, will file a complaint in the courts of Vinaros. Alberto Hernandez Calvo and his brothers José and Antonio will also file a complaint. Dolores Calvo de Haro (mother of the Hernandez Calvo brothers) will file a complaint with the Provincial Prosecutor’s Office of Castellon. She will explain in a long letter that she believed her children, but that the justice had laughed in their face while she could prove with official judicial documents the psychological abuses exerted on her children by the courts of Vinaros provoking a powerlessness and a contempt. According to her, the judge did not want to understand what was going on because of political interest. Carlos Fabra’s friends will spread the word that this family is crazy in the town of Xilxes where they live and will do everything so that she and her husband do not have a job. The mother will separate from her husband in the same period and will catch a cancer because she felt guilty for the misfortune that her children had gone through. Santiago Moreno Rius, Francisco José Moreno Rius and Mari Carmen Moreno Rius will file a complaint in the courts of Vinaros. David Moreno Fernandez and his sister Rosa Moreno Fernandez also filed a complaint. Finally Felix Macho will also denounce the facts that he suffered before the civil guard of Vinaros. 3 years after the first complaint, Albert Castillon, journalist of the Antena3 channel in collaboration with a psychologist and with the help of Antonio Toscano, also journalist, will realize a series of filmed interviews with the abused children. This report called “Pedophiles in the open” will be broadcasted on Antena3.

Children who have been abused will tell the story of what happened to them in great detail. They will name their aggressors, the places, the rituals, the murders and abuses suffered. All the testimonies were given during the Vinares investigation and the court did not make any changes. All the victims’ procedures were put to sleep. The corrupt magistracy put pressure on the parents and children to keep them silent. Even the forensic examinations of the children will be suspended. Everything will be archived directly without examination. The investigative bodies will submit partial reports in order not to question those responsible for this sordid affair. Reinaldo Colas, who initiated the case, also created an association (AVICSIN) of victims against the sexual corruption of children. A document written by the association will show that Juan Fernando Aguilar Lopez, then Minister of Justice from 2004 to 2007, in the same party as Carlos Fabra, was aware of everything that was happening at the bar of Spain. Reinaldo Colas and Nuria Carque Vera (president of Mothers in Action of Castellon) will hand over the damning documents in front of the Ministry of Justice. They will be received by the secretary of the minister who will excuse the absence of his boss and then put the file under the carpet. In 2008, Valenti Figueres will release a documentary about the case of the bar Espana “La manada”. Today, different groups and associations continue to fight to shed light on this story. This story is about a sick system, an evil that has always plagued humanity. There is you, us, and there is them. At your level, at our level, it is up to us to make the world a better place by denouncing all these sons that Satan himself must have given birth to.
