The Government has decided to avoid a conflict with the Generalitat of Catalonia and has decided to plant the Court of Auditors and refuse to pronounce on public guarantees to the independence defendants.
According to an official statement, "AGE General Advocacy (AGE) confirms, after examining the proposal elevated by the State Court State Attorney, which does not proceed with the issuance of the report that was requested on the guarantees submitted by the Generalitat, Through the Institut Català de Finances (ICF), to address the bail of 5.4 million euros that are claimed to 34 years high charges and officials of the Catalan Administration for its alleged involvement by improper expenses in the promotion of Proctors abroad, between 2011 and 2017 ".
The Court of Auditors placed the State Advocacy, under the Ministry of Justice, to advise you before deciding whether it annuls the guarantees and proceeds to seize the goods of Artur Mas, Oriol Junquerras and other leaders of Proctors. According to the statement, the legal advocacy "considers that it does not come from, within the framework of the consultative role that the Law on the Operation of the Court of Auditors attributed to the legal service of the State in the Court, it may issue the report, since it has the status of Part in the pre-actuations phase to which this report would be incorporated. " This argument to sneak is surprised in the Court of Auditors, because the Government already announced before the summer that it would not be entrepired in the case of embezzlement for the external action of the Generalitat and the illegal referendum of the 1-or claiming that the damaged was the Government and not the Spanish hacienda. Therefore, if the Ministry of Justice has ceased to be a party, it could pronounce on the guarantees, according to the expectation of the Court of Auditors.
"The principles of contradiction and equality would also be affected, by requiring the report to a single parent without hearing of others," adds the report.
In any case, the State Law does not show hostility to the guarantees, because it states that "the prosecution of the acts that are issued must be made in accordance with the Decree-Law of the Autonomous Community of Catalonia 15/2021, of July 6, of Creation of the Complementary Risk Fund of the Generalitat of Catalonia, since it is a norm with a range of law that has not been declared unconstitutional or has been cautiously suspended in its effectiveness. "
The decision on whether the guarantees are acceptable or not as bail, correspond to the delegate Instructor of the case, Esperanza García in the audit body. Sources of the Court of Auditors have already questioned this newspaper last July that the Generalitat could endorse with public funds accused of embezzlement. García wanted the opinion of the legal advocacy, but she can reject them for the Court of Auditors, although the Decree of the Generalitat is constitutional.Updated Date: 22 September 2021, 09:13
