The former Interior Minister Jorge Fernandez Díaz argues that the Kitchen case file has been precipitated and that the investigation should be oriented towards the responsibility of the Popular Party in espionage to its former Treasurer Luis Bárcenas.
This is what it consists of the appeal brought by Fernández Díaz against the decision of Magistrate Manuel García Castellón to consider concluding the research phase and proposing its prosecution. In his opinion, the thesis that the operation was devised and executed in the Ministry of the Interior "is alien to all logic".
In the resource, the former minister says that the judge "seems to forget that the origin of the so-called Kitchen Operation, according to the thesis maintained by the Fiscal Ministry and by the Court itself through its resolutions, was access and in its case subtraction of information held by the environment of Don Luis Bárcenas, of a sensitive and detrimental nature for some leaders of the Popular Party ".
"Therefore," he continues, "it is clear that the origin of operation Kitchen nor was related nor affected the Ministry of the Interior. And it is obvious that Mr. Bárcenas was the treasurer of the Popular Party, not from the Ministry of the Interior and did not depend on nor was he linked to said ministry. "
Fernández Díaz's defense recalls that he was never linked to the papers of Bárcenas, which reflected an accounting in black, so that the evolution of the cause that was intended to sabotage did not affect him directly.
"The interpretation of the Ilmo. Instructor 'encapsulating' The facts in the environment of the Ministry of the Interior and rejecting the research path towards the origin of the problem, attentive against the most elementary common sense and contradicts the result of the proceedings practiced. The judicial decision It is a false research closure. "
The resource asks the judge, and failing that the criminal room, which file the cause with respect to Fernández Díaz. He considers that, in addition to the illogical of not seeking responsibility in the PP, there is no indications of the concrete involvement of the former minister in the operation to be made with the compromising documentation for the party. He considers him to be sent to trial for the "simplistic" reasoning of the Judge Instructor that, since he was the minister, he should be responsible for the allegedly criminal action of the subordinates of him.
The most direct, the former Security Secretary, Francisco Martínez, whose affirmation that he maintained awareness of all to the minister is the fundamental indication against Fernández Díaz. Beyond the statement of him, he protocolized before notary messages that both would have crossed, but that the defense of the former minister questions.
"The text messages incorporated in a form printed to the aforementioned notarial minutes, lack sufficient offly to sustain the imputation of my represented in this case, in which the load of the test has been invested and has been the SR . Fernández Díaz who has had to prove that he did not send the messages attributed to him, "says the resource.Date Of Update: 03 September 2021, 09:31
