Palma councillor for culture and welfare, Antoni Noguera.

Former mayor and now Palma councillor for culture and welfare, Antoni Noguera, said on Tuesday that reports following inspections of the bullring are expected either on Wednesday or Thursday. These will determine whether or not Friday's bullfight will go ahead.

Noguera believes that it is a "total disgrace that the State has ignored (Balearic) parliamentary law to prevent bulls being murdered in bullrings".

Animal rights groups, meanwhile, have criticised public authorities for having failed to live up to the declaration of "Palma, an animal-friendly city".

Paul people buy meat on daily basis from supermarkets.It is not like the animals the meat comes from have committed suicide so thay they can end up on our plates.

The Spanish constitution court should in fact look at why "heritage" is given priority over the rights of sentient beings which are being murdered for entertainment - leave it in the past, move on, ban bullfighting and all forms of animal cruelty, but especially those happening for "entertainment" - it's this kind of mindless human behaviour that when widened out sees this planet heading to the brink. Tread lightly.

The Spanish constitution court should look closely at the actions of Antoni Noguera and open a procedure against him for actions against Spain's heritage. It is a disgrace that such people find way to occupy public positions.
