The PNV requires the Government to reform the Official Secrets Law that González Laya did not speak of Ghali

Former Exterior Minister Arancha González Laya declared on Monday before the Ghali case Instructor and dodged his questions, under which many of the issues were reserved, based on the Law of Official Secrets and an agreement of the Council of Ministers of October 2010 that protects the vast majority of the actions in which foreign affairs leaders intervene.

That same Law of Official Secrets, which is maintained since the Francoism - it is 1968 and retouched in October 1978, just before the approval of the Constitution - is the subject of tensions between the Government and one of its main parliamentary partners, The PNV, which has made its reform a flag in Congress. "It is urgent that a change is given. If not, in the end it will be a jolt" for the relationships between both parties, point to the Glantine sources.

The reform of Basque nationalists has been "eternizing" in the limbo of Congress, regret, and under the suspicion that the government wants to kick forward until the legislature is over. Therefore, the PNV has registered three questions to the executive in the lower house.

The first two has dispatched the Government by referring to the words of the Minister of the Presidency, Felix Bolaños, who said that the standard does not enter the executive "Legislative Calendar" for this year, since now the "Absolute Priority" is the "Just recovery" and later already "will be seen" if you enter the Government's reform plan for the year 2022.

In the absence of explanations, the PNV has returned to the load with a third question, and is waiting for the definitive answer. "Our proposal was taken into consideration, but has been removed from the Legislative Plan" of the Executive, regretting parliamentary sources of training.

The PNV raises in its reform raise the secrecy of the classified documents within 25 years, and of 10 in case of reserved subjects. The executive postponed the negotiation with the nationalists with the argument that he prepares his own proposal to reform the norm.

The defense ministries are involved - the one that has advanced in this way -, interior, exterior and the own presidency of the government. The Department of Margarita Robles was the one who began the preparations of the norm - "is the one that took it most seriously," they assure the PNV.

But it has not yet been presented or the draft of the reform preliminary draft, which has increased the suspiciones in the PNV, where they believe that the process will take up to 2023. "Why do not they include amendments at our initiative? Heyer does not give Time to approve it in the legislature and ours takes a year and more than three months stop, since June of last year, "wonder. "It's exhausting," regret the Sources of PNV.

For the Jellant, this reform is key, although it will not condition the negotiation of the General Budgets of the State for 2022. "They already know that for us it is important, but a priori this is not part of the budgetary negotiation," he says. The PNV is aware that the Executive will include numerous "transitional provisions" to preserve some of the main state secrets.

"What we want is a law of terms, as in the countries of the homologable environment, and that at the time of classification is not so lax and protected entire areas, in general", as it happens with outdoors, claims the PNV.
