María Cospedal Dolores stopped in silence in the Kitchen case. The former general secretary of the PP has refused to declare in the appearance of it in the Congress Commission that she investigates the alleged espionage to Luis Bárcenas with resources from the Ministry of the Interior to, supposedly, cover the scandals of corruption of her party .
Although it is no longer charged in the Kitchen case, former number two has grabbed that its judicial horizon is still not fully clear because the prosecution and two particular accusations representing PSOE and we can have resorted by the judge's decision to exonerate it of any responsibility.
Thus, Cospedal has announced that he was going to welcome his constitutional right not to declare to preserve his "right of defense". "I inform you that I intend to not issue an answer to your questions," he said in an initial statement at the beginning of the Congress Commission.
Former Minister and former number two of the PP has explained that it did it for the appeal against its imputation and respect for judicial resolutions and the administration of justice.
The cospedal posture of keeping silence has bothered the deputies of the Commission, who have reproached their lack of collaboration to clarify the episode of spying to Bárcenas, on which they accuse it of being an accomplice.
The parties tried that Cospedal declared a first time before the summer, but the news of its imputation for the judge led to suspending his statement "ten minutes" before it occurs and postponed it later. Faced with her's criticism for not responding, Cospedal has answered saying that when she was cited for the first time she was "ready to declare" and has attributed the groups that decision to delay the appearance of her.
The PSOE spokesman, Felipe Sicilia, has replicated Cospedal that the true reason he refuses to declare is because he would run "a lot of risk" that "audios" or "documents" showed that he has given false testimony.
"Many believe that when it is silent because you have a lot to cover and that the risk of saying something in this commission is very great," said the socialist deputy.
"You are no longer challenged, you could perfectly answer what we asked in this commission and if you do not, Mrs. Cospedal, it is because she prefers to pass the embarrassment not to answer and stay before public opinion as a person who despises this camera and National sovereignty before danger that his words on tomorrow can be falsely demonstrated, "Has Drowned Sicily.
Both the PSOE and the rest of the parties have used their word shifts to denounce the supposed complicity of cospedal and their husband, Ignacio López del Hierro, in the Kitchen case and have underlined the ties of both and their secret meetings with the Joseph retired commissioner Manuel Villarejo, the alleged executor of the espionage operation, as well as by "personal interest" in preventing Bárcenas from demonstrating the existence of a B box in the PP.
The spokespersons of the different parties have been reviewing the indications or making value judgments that, in their way of seeing, link Cospedal with this case. "Doubt is not to know if you knew about Kitchen, but as she is not charged," Sicily has dreamed.Date Of Update: 09 December 2021, 06:40
