There are many celebrities who have ever opened the debate on the limits that the ‘paparazzi’ touch. Many times the red line situates the debate between the right to information and privacy.
A few days ago, Gerard Piqué and Clara Chía went to court to testify for the lawsuit they filed against Jordi Martín, a photojournalist, who has also testified.
First, the prosecution considered that the measures requested by the couple were not necessary because the right to information prevailed.
However, this case has taken a 180 degree turn and the judge has ruled that said ‘paparazzi’ will have a restraining order for Clara Chía for three months.
A duration that the magistrate has considered sufficient for Piqué’s girlfriend to recover from the stress that the persecution of the press can entail.
The car states that Jordi Martín will not be able to come closer than 400 meters from the home, work environment or place where Clara Chía is located, despite the fact that she requested a minimum of 1,000 meters.
Yes, you can get closer and be no less than 20 meters away when she is in a “social” act. Nor will you be able to contact Clara Chía, neither via telematics nor through social networks.
In ‘Y ahora Sonsoles’ we were curious about what the day-to-day life of a paparazzi is like, oblivious to Clara Chía’s complaint, and how this news has settled the union.
“The real paparazzi, fetén, is the one who lets the character act without disturbing,” he defended on set.
Despite all this, Jordi Martín will be able to continue photographing her as long as he avoids any contact between the two.
All the movements until Clara Chía has won the sentence
According to ‘El Periódico’ on May 4, Piqué and Clara Chía had a run-in with said photojournalist in a car park on Beethoven street, in Barcelona.
From this point, the debate begins about whether this place is a private area or not, since it is located in the vicinity of the headquarters where Piqué has his company.
After filing the complaint and taking statements for alleged harassment, the prosecution considered that the right to information prevailed.
In the end, the athlete withdrew from the request, leaving Clara Chía as the sole plaintiff, who reduced the distance that was requested at the beginning (3,000 meters) to the one that we have commented on in this article.
In addition, Clara Chía also presented some psychological reports that indicate the stress she is experiencing as a result of the press’s insistence on photographing or having her own statements.
Will Jordi Martín be able to photograph Clara Chía in these three months? It must be remembered that he was the first to take a public photo of Piqué’s current girlfriend.
