The True Crime has triumphed in Catalonia in most of the stories of the journalist, writer and screenwriter Carles Porta. Real assassinations that are going to shock the population, fearful fears that reflect on the evils of society. For all his followers, those of the radio and those of the TV and pels our followers, Porta Arriba aquest Sant Jordi amb Crims. Llum a la foscor (The Bell. Penguin Random House)un volum amb deu relats, some of them unpublished.
Per ser reals, hi ha menys sang que a moltes novel les negres.
Chronic black fem amb colors, sense to use the vermell of blood and the groc of sensationalism. We try to keep a scale per sota of what we could consider morbid. I seek to pose-hi with menys sang, millor.
Is the border on?
I always tell my team and I apply my mateix, to try to think what would happen if that victim were from the family.
It’s clear. Només we posem the one that is essential to understand crime, but I don’t offend. It is the rule of the three ‘R’s: Rigor, respect and narrative rhythm. Rigor because everything has to be very serious, everything has to be contrasted and everyone who poses has to be real. We can’t make mistakes and if there is any, we’ve escaped, but we can’t; Respect for all that surt als our stories, continue to be a victim or fins i tot assassí, face that above all, victims and seves famílies and finally, narrative rhythm. It is to say, if people buy this book and the arrival, it will be per passar-s’ho bé. Amb tot això, hi ha un relat que es el crim del rol, que te molt durs moments, que son molt potents from the point of view of the description that makes the mateix assassí dels seus acts of him. Però ho hem mantingut, precisely because it is vegi the face of evil.
Exactly. Aquest crim has two interesting components. For a gang, I’ll attack at the time of escollir the victim, who will be forever because here hi entrem tots. I per l’altra, the gratuity of violence. It is a gratuïtat that we do not understand. Ho contextualitzem in a war, per exemple, però ens consists molt contextualitzar-la in normal life. I, in change, exist more than we think.
Some family has not volgut mend the passat?
I li ho have respect?
If it is the victim’s family and their arguments have an understandable human basis, yes, we respect it.
Tenint en compte que s’es reobrint some cases, did you rebut threats?
Fa molts anys that I rebound threats, they are part of the feina, since I touch you fear that they will not please and hi ha gent who felt uncovered, assenyalada. I always rep some gimmick, some comment or a direct threat, but per sort, I don’t think I’m really bad.
«The crime of the role has two interesting components. L’atzar a l’hour d’escollir the victim and the gratuitousness of violence»
Tea an important window of motivation. Like a donut, I find that the sexual assault continues to be a very powerful cause.
Sexual assault is often cridanera when it is not obvious. Cridanera em refereixo a narratiu level, d’investigació. However, according to the global computation of crimes, the genders are a very small percentage, considering that narratively, sometimes, they have a very large presence.
Because discovering the assassí of vegades is fa molt complicat. Llavors, the one that we highlight with our products, is the difficulty of investigating, facing that the criminal followed the husband or the couple.
Normally assassí i victim is coneixen?
Most of the violent acts are committed between partners, some from the victim’s environment, but it has to be proven.
This is one of the things that I also tried to highlight the importance of a good investigation. Moltes vegades, to the pel·lícules and to the series, the assassins end up confessing and això no passa gairebé mai. The television and the cinema have fet molt badly to reality. But probably, the reality is surprising when someone explains it to you. The investigations are very important. It is there that it is said that there are no perfect crims, but rather bad fetes investigations. Moltes vegades is evident who is the author of the crime, but you have to prove it. And if it is not possible to demonstrate, then the criminal continues to work.

Their crims practically all are resolved…
By 95%. We salute the one who is going to explain good histories, we are not going to solve crims, it is not our objectiu tot i vegades, like it is the case of Helena Jubany or some other that is already veurà, ens fixem in a case that is not Resolt i només pel fet de posar-lo damunt la taula es mouen coses, nous testimonies apareixen, hi ha gent que després de molts anys is decideix to speak and the investigation hi veu noves ombres. Nosaltres are narrators, we can’t be judges, we can’t be policies, for which we have cases that are already judged and sentenced. And it’s not easy because we have to find the documentation, the testimonies, they have to talk again…
Has it been easy for the Mossos to talk?
No. Neither the Mossos, nor the Civil Guard, nor the National Police because the traiem of the seva comfort zone. Ens has cost molt, but little by little they have anat tenent that we do not posàvem in situations of difficulty, we are not a court and we just want to collect the seva experience, a bar of personal and professional. Let’s see the mosso who is going to investigate that crime as a mosso, but as a person, also because I explain why it would be a police report. In any case, I believe that we have shown that we treat most of all and that every time it is allowed to access more people.
How are you?
Els forenses ho have prohibit fins no fa gaire. I de jutges, each time in tenim més. The judicial system is a body of our society that does not talk much, it seems that it is allergic to transparency, which is very painful for everyone because we are the one who is explaining how they have worked and the difficulties with what they are ‘have trobat.
When there is a case like that of Helena Jubany, do you contact the Justice Department to request documentation?
They do not directly demand proves, among other things because they do not want to collect proves. Tot i això, what has happened, per exemple, amb el cas de l’Helena? Arran de l’emissió del nostre capítol van aparèixer elements, informacions i, sobretot, testimonies, which have contributed new things. Llavors, the private accusation, who are the representatives of Helena’s family, have brought this new information to the jutjat and it is the one who has just said that he had reopened almost on the 22nd he went to declare the Mr. Xavi Jiménez, charged for this story, which will end soon.
«The judicial system is a body of our society that does not talk about anything, it seems that there is an allergy to transparency»
Some case has sobtat more?
No. I look at everything with the mateixa passió. Humanly, every death is very hard, but I don’t like to say a tragic crime, because they are all. With a minimum for the victim’s family and for the victim’s mate.
And the Guàrdia Urbana?
The components of the Guàrdia Urbana crime are impossible to create in fiction. Cap scriptwriter s’hauria atrevit mai to create tot el que hi ha de real en aquest crim. All the characters are policies, because I also have mossos, the vius and the dead, the lies, the papers of one and the other… Tot plegat is so incredible that it seems that it cannot be real. But, as always, reality is the best narrator that hi has, is the best screenwriter that hi has. Davant d’això hi there are cases that et frapen més, especially narratively. The Guàrdia Urbana could be one, but al llibre had the one of cosins, that not even the mateixos mossos could imagine how it would end. I have the possible author davant and I don’t know.
It has included some crime outside of Catalonia.
Pel crime itself. A nosaltres ens molt bé la proximity, but I have also volunteered for this exercise narratiu i passa tant amb Fargothat with a crime is very interesting and incredible, with the last one, The donut senses face, which runs to Alemanya and a little to França. She was going to finish with a punchet d’humor.
«The crim ‘Cosins’, even in the open, nor the materials mossos s’imaginaven com end. I have davant to the possible author and I do not believe»
How did you see her reinserted?
The prison is a crime that is a global failure. When someone ends up in prison, he will say that he has previously failed, from education to friends, family, administrations, social services and finances and all the police. He will say that the entire system has failed. Ara, supporter of reintegration or not? I don’t know. I don’t feel so much preparation for responding.
What is pitjor, a death or a disappearance?
I wouldn’t like to tell you either, because there is no one who knows who has passed, because it seems that it is a disappearance because there is a terrible component that is uncertainty. No hi has been harder than uncertainty because it is evident that death is very hard and that of a fill is very difficult to overcome. But if a fill disappears, what do you do? It’s molt dur because you don’t know if he’s dead, if he has marxat voluntarily, you don’t know about him. All are a quantity of impressive unknowns. Probably for now, the European Commission is going to issue a directive demanant that the cases of disappearances are not deixin d’investigar mai, face that it is not known if hi has delicte or not. It is evident the patiment that is generated darrere d’a disappearance. I am also worth it for those who disappear voluntarily, who have all the right of the world, it would just be missing, all of them would be very easy to say, Marx. And he is already.
