Information reaching Townflex has it that Gabriel Guevara, who is a Spanish actor has been apprehended at the Venice Film Festival over an alleged sexual assault in France.
At the tender age of 22, Gabriel found himself ensnared by the Italian law enforcement authorities during the festival, mere hours before he was slated to receive a prestigious award. This accolade, the Best Young Actor honor bestowed by Filming Italy, now hung in suspense.
It’s worth noting that an active international warrant had been issued for Gabriel’s arrest, though the finer details concerning the assault and the circumstances of his apprehension remained conspicuously absent.
Gabriel Guevara arrested: In light of these developments, Gabriel now resides in protective custody under the vigilant watch of the Italian State Police. The court of appeals will pass judgment on his case prior to initiating extradition proceedings.
Filming Italy, upon learning of the arrest, promptly revoked the slated award, justifying this action as a “precautionary measure” pending the verdict in this unfolding legal saga, as conveyed through an official statement.
Venice Film Festival said in a statement: “Following the news articles which have been emerging on various websites, regarding the Spanish actor Gabriel Guevara being arrested in Venice, the Biennale hereby clarifies that his presence in Venice was not linked to any events or productions related to the 80th Venice International Film Festival.”
