The judge of the 'Ghali case' calls to declare as a witness to the General Commissioner of Information of the Police

The titular magistrate of the 13th Instruction Court of Zaragoza, Rafael Lasala, has cited to declare as a witness to the General Commissioner of Information of the National Police, Eugenio Pereiro Blanco, in the cause that investigates the entry into Spain of the leader of the Polisario Front, Brahim Ghali. The appointment will be next November 26.

The request for the Declaration was carried out last Friday, the lawyer of the particular accusation, Antonio Urdiales, so that Pereiro clarifies the national police action on the arrival of Gali to the Zaragoza Air Base, on April 18, without show No documentation.

The magistrate wants to know the reasons why the police did not require a copy of the supposed false passport used by Ghali and why air control agents did not approach to check it. Likewise, he will ask him about the counterfeit documentation he had been the Saharawi leader when entering the San Pedro hospital in Logroño, where he was attended by the Covid-19.

And if this was able to answer the petition made by Judge Santiago Pedraz, magistrate of the national audience, two months before his arrival in Spain, about the location of Ghali that was processed.

The statement will take place by videoconference, from a court of Madrid, although the judge gives him the opportunity to declare facely if he manifests him before the 24th of this month.

The Holder of the Zaragoza Court has already asked the National Audience to know if before the trip to Spain had adopted some initiative to locate Ghali. The answer was that no "precautionary or requisition" had not been issued on the leader of the Polisario Front, but Judge Pedraz went to the General Commissioner of Information in February to be located.

The National Police answered the magistrate that he could not identify him and placed him in Tinduf, an Algerian town near the border with the Sahara.

Judge Lasala has rejected intervening the mobile phone of the former cabinet head of the former exterior minister Arancha González Laya, Camilo Villarino, investigated in this case and who received various emails from an unidentified person with documentation on Ghali. Villarino refused to voluntarily deliver, held on the Law of Official Secrets.

On the other hand, the police of Zaragoza Airport has communicated to Judge Lasala who "did not come" to the place where the Algerian state landed to check the identity of the Saharawi leader.
