He was questioned and reported for not complying with State of Alarm movements restrictions.

According to a Guardia Civil statement, the diver has several previous administrative complaints against him for poaching and was also denounced for not having a licence to carry out underwater fishing and for not complying with the “obligation to indicate his position at sea by means of a buoy”.

The complaints have sent to the Territorial Delegation of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries of the Delegation of the Junta de Andalucia, as well as to the Maritime Captaincy in Malaga.
