The judge of the 'Yéremi case' does not accept to call 'El Rubio' as a witness

The judge who for 14 years has investigated the disappearance of the child and Vargas in Vecindario (Gran Canaria) has already determined the first inquiries that he will have reopened the case, among which he will not be quoted as witness to Antonio Ojeda, alias the Rubio, as the family asked, so as not to compromise instruction.

In a car released this Monday by the Top Justice Court of Canarias, Judge Juan Manuel Hermo remembers that although today "there is no known author of the events investigated," the Vargas family continues to point to the blonde as a main suspicious From the disappearance of Yéremi in 2007, so he sees counterproductive to accept that he provides a statement as a witness.

"In his case, his statement should be as investigated and should be at the moment in which there are sufficient evidence or indications to direct research against this person," he argues the judge, who remembers that if he calls Ojeda as a witness , this would be forced to tell the truth, which would mean "an evident risk for the instructor activity" if later there was a basis for imputing it, by the constitutional guarantees that protect the presumption of innocence and the right of defense.

The Rubio was formally charged as alleged author of the disappearance and possible death of the child and Vargas until March 2018, when the audience of Las Palmas decided to confirm the case file by sharing the reasons why Judge Hermo defended that there was no base Enough to direct against any person research by those facts.

Now, the judge has reopened the inquiries by accepting the Vargas-Suárez family proposal so that indications are taken into account, which, in their opinion, were not valued at the time and that, under its criteria, would allow Antonio to investigate Ojeda, to which the child's parents continue to point out as suspicious.

OJEDA has already fulfilled the sentence that was imposed by sexual abuse to a minor in the doctoral, neighborhood adjacent with a neighborhood, in a case that the Vargas-Suárez family - and the Civil Guard - saw parallels with what could happen before Yéremi

During his stay in jail he made a series of comments about the neighborhood child to some prisoners, which the family argues that they are revealing that he knows what he could think of.

The judge is now six months to make new inquiries, starting to examine an interview that the Atresmedia group made the blonde in March 2015, when he was not formally defeated, and review the medical history of Yéremi Vargas in case some Detail of utility for research.

He also agrees to call again to declare as a witness to the mother of the child, Ithais Suárez, with the purpose of "expanding what he considers relevant to the cause". The instructor will listen to it with that purpose on November 5, at 10.00.

The courthouse has agreed to extend the investigation for the disappearance of Yéremi during those six months. The Judge Instructor has already agreed on September 2, reopen the previous filigences provisionally archived in October 2017 in response to a petition made in this regard for the particular accusation, person in the case on behalf of the parents of Yéremi, who was seven years old The last time he was seen.

Now, after gathering favorable report from the Fiscal Ministry to the reopening of research, the Judicial Authority provides for the extension of research for six months - receiving new extension - and pronounced on the battery of evidence proposed by the legal direction of the family of the disappeared, admitting some and rejecting others.
