You have asked us about a content that has been moved in the networks of several people in a terrace, assuring that in a local in Seville called Bar Jota the authorities have “closed for five months and 5,000 euros of fine” and that “the customers who were there 250 euros fine “. It is a hoax that the Bar Jota has been closed for five months as the messages that are being disseminated assure. Of course, as the Seville City Council indicates to Maldita.es, the Local Police have opened files to those responsible for the premises, located on Avenida Luis Montoto (Seville), for violations of de-escalation measures.
As they indicate, the amount of the fine is still unknown, but they have not closed the establishment. In addition, they are not aware that a file has been opened to clients. For their part, from Bar Jota they point out that given the impossibility of maintaining the safety distance they have decided to close while executing the suggested changes.
