The PSOE tightens the renewal of the CGPJ citing to declare in the 'Kitchen' investigation to the PP negotiator

If the renewal of the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) was already complicated enough, another element that disturbs the relationships between the PSOE and the PP must now be added. Socialists have facilitated that the popular negotiator in this matter, Enrique López, has been cited to declare in the Commission that he investigates the Kitchen case in Congress, that is, the alleged espionage to the former popular treasurer Luis Bárcenas with media and funds from the Ministry from the interior during the Mariano Rajoy government.

The name of López, who is also a Counselor at the executive who leads Isabel Díaz Ayuso in the Community of Madrid, has been included in the new list of appeals that has been approved on Tuesday at the Kitchen Commission and that will force to parade by The Congress during the next months also to Mariano Rajoy, María Dolores de Cospedal, Jorge Fernández Díaz and, for the second time, to the retired commissioner José Manuel Villaréjo.

The citation of López has angry the PP because the counselor Madrid did not occupy any organic charge in the Popular Party. He is supposedly cited because he becomes brought into contact Bárcenas, when he was already in prison, with the PP lawyers.

For the Popular Spokesman at Congress, Cuca Gamarra, his call is the "test" that the Research Commission is "a circus and a theater that is riding the PSOE."

The Socialist Parliamentary spokesman, Héctor Gómez, has justified the citation of López without much conciseness about the reasons despite the reiteration of questions about it. Thus, he has shouted that he can "contribute a lot of light" that helps to "clarify" the case, given the "trajectory and organic responsibility of him in the PP." "We have valued it very much and believe that he can contribute," he said.

Gómez has stressed that "at all" linked the citation of López with some type of pressure to the PP to renew the CGPJ and has said that it is necessary to "differentiate" the two areas. Therefore, he has denied that the PSOE wants to convert the Commission "on something else" that is not to investigate that specific case of a presumed illegal use of funds and public resources.

Regarding the new package of appearance, the Commission takes up the citations that had pending former Rajoy and former Ministers Fernández Díaz and Cospedal, who were postponed for this new session. So the main novelty is in the new appeals and in the final decision not to quote the leader of the PP, Paul married, as some games intended and that has avoided the PSOE with his vows.

For the Commission they will return to parade again Villarejo, the former head of the Central Operational Support Unit (UCAO) Enrique García Castaño and the former Director General of the Police Ignacio seasió. We will go for the first time the head of Cabinet de Sedó, Pedro Acute, and Ignacio Ulloa Rubio, who was Security Secretary with Minister Fernández Díaz.

The former director of the Soto de Real José Luis Argento and the Isidro Sánchez Suárez, companion of Bárcenos at the Penitentiary Center have also been cited.
