Former Commissioner José Manuel Villarejo has tried this Friday to take the floor at the trial against him who celebrates the national audience. The main defendant in the tandem case is a lawyer, so he has the power to sit on estrades and not on the bench and exercise his own defense. This has already done it and some other accused in the macrojicio and so Villarejo has pretended, again without success.
"Callese," has told him the court president, Magistrate Angela Murillo, when after several hours of raising prior issues and new evidence to examine in the trial, Villarejo's lawyer, Antonio José García Cabrera, has informed the court that The accused-lawyer himself was going to continue proposing more evidence for the trial.
"More test?", The president said. "We have no choice but to propose all this broad probative activity," García Cabrera has answered. "We need to know the truth and if this gentleman is a corrupt, that he is condemned, and if not, that he will absolve with all favorable pronouncements." [...] It is a very complex case, a ladies. Everything said so far this defense and now will propose Mr. Villarejo in his own defense. "
As he had done in the previous days, the president has stressed that he only wanted a voice in defense. "A defense is exercising them, Lord lawyer," she said, when Villarejo has intervened: "With Venia, Lordship, I am CodeFensor."
-With you are not talking.
-I am a companion ...
-Shut up please.
-I'll also have right, with all the respect, ...
- Lord accused, shut up!
- Class and lawyer, Honor.
- Do you want to shut up, please? Here at this headquarters you can not say what you want. It's already, it's over, let's do a break.
The result of the incident is that Villarejo is going to have to wait for him to touch the turn of being questioned as a defendant if he wants him to be heard in the trial, taking for fact that the room will not estimate any of the allegations of the defendants for no Go ahead with oral view. At the moment, the view will resume with the response of the Prosecutor's Office to all the questions that the defenses have requested to resolve before starting interrogations.
Between the test that Villarejo's defense has asked to practice in the trial are the statements of the Government President, Pedro Sánchez, of the Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, and the State Attorney General, Dolores Delgado. All of them have poured in the last years "incriminatory demonstrations" against the retired commissioner.
On the PP side, the list has been extended to the former president of the Mariano Rajoy, the former Secretary General María Dolores de Cospedal and the former Minister of the Interior Jorge Fernández Díaz.
"Why Mr. Villarejo had Mr. Rajoy's mobile phone? Is it normal for a commissioner to report to a government president?" He said the police lawyer. The possibility that Rajoy and Villarejo had maintained contact have been investigated in the piece on Kitchen operation, another branch of the Villarejo case. The judge of the case, against the anti-corruption criterion, recently closed that way of research.Date Of Update: 26 November 2021, 13:25
