After a weekend in which the PP has acknowledged its conversations with the former president of the Generalitat Carles Puigdemont and that it would grant him a pardon, this Monday it announced that will file a complaint for prevarication against the state attorney general, Alvaro Garcia Ortiz, for the appointment of his predecessor in office, Dolores Delgado, as court prosecutor, PP sources reported.
It is based for this on a Supreme Court ruling of November 21 in which Delgado’s promotion to the highest tax category as a togada prosecutor was annulled, a previous position that was granted to him before the current one, as Prosecutor of the Memory Room. Democratic. That promotion was annulled by the high court considering that García Ortiz committed a “misuse of power.”
Now the party chaired by Alberto Núñez Feijóo goes one step further and considers that “this deviation of power declared in the administrative sphere” by the Contentious-Administrative Chamber of the Supreme Court “can also entail a crime of prevarication according to article 404 of the Penal Code.”
These sources also point out that “the former minister has recently been accused by an anti-corruption prosecutor of removing her from relevant investigations due to the commercial interest of her partner, former judge Baltasar Garzón, who in turn was removed from the judicial career due to an outside instruction. of ordering and against the interests of the Popular Party”.
The PP recalls that the president of the Government, Pedro Sanchez, appointed attorney general who had been his Minister of Justice the previous legislature and that she resigned from the position, which was assumed by her right hand in the public ministry, Álvaro García Ortiz. It is insisted that she has received “reproach from her colleagues and an appeal to the Supreme Court by an association of prosecutors”, the Professional and Independent Association of Prosecutors (Apif), who branded her an “appendage of the Government”.
The PP goes further and accuses him of “acting as Pedro Sánchez’s 23rd minister because the President of the Government demands it.” And they insist on old mantras like he participated in PSOE campaign events in Galicia against Alberto Núñez Feijóo, even though they were public ministry events in which he participated as an Environmental specialist.
From there, Núñez Feijóo’s party, mainly responsible for the lack of renewal of the General Council of the Judiciary, which has doubled its mandate, takes the opportunity to question the impartiality of the members of the Council. constitutional Courtas of its last renewal, which unlike its previous composition now enjoys a progressive majority.
