The court of first instance 54 of Barcelona has refused to stop the premiere of the Netflix series, 'The Body on Fire', scheduled for next Friday, September 8, as Rosa Peral had requested. The Guardia Urbana agent sentenced to 25 years in prison for the murder of her boyfriend, Pedro Rodríguez, along with her lover, Albert López, claimed the kidnapping of the series as a precautionary measure until they had seen it in order to file a lawsuit for violation of the right to honor.
In an order, the judge claims a lack of territorial jurisdiction to review the matter. She explains that a matter of violation of the right to privacy or honor should be reviewed in the judicial district in which the plaintiff, in this case, Rosa Peral, resides. As the former agent is an inmate in the Tarragona penitentiary center, she must also be counted as the residence of Vilanova i la Geltrú, where she lived before being detained. Therefore, the judge warns, Peral should go to the local courts to formulate her request.
Rosa Peral along with her lover, Albert López, ended the life of Pedro Rodríguez, the woman's boyfriend in the early morning of May 1, 2017. They killed him in the house where the couple lived and the next day they transported his body in the trunk of his own car and burned it in the Foix reservoir. Peral was sentenced to 25 years in prison for malicious murder and López to 20. Peral will be played by Úrsula Corberó and Albert López, by Quim Gutiérrez in the series 'The Burning Body' that recreates the moments before and after the crime.
