The Association of Progressive Cutting Judges and Judges for Democracy (JJPD) resumed its pressure campaign on Monday to renew the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) looking at the European institutions. After requesting two weeks ago the resignation of Carlos Lesmes and the rest of the vowels of the Government of the Judges and to go to the presidencies of the Congress of the Deputies and the Senate in search of solutions, the group - which was linked to the current Minister of Justice, Pilar Llop - announced the sending of a letter to the Commissioner of Justice of the European Union, Didier Reynders, in which he asks for his speech.
In the letter, in addition, the collective accuses the PP to "systematically" systematically "the unlock of the Government of the Judges, whose mandate expired in December 2018. JJPD is the second judicial group that comes to Europe for the controversy of renewal .
This same month, the Francisco de Vitoria Association (Centrista) announced its intention to reach the European Court of Human Rights to denounce the paralysis of the process.
JJPD asks Reynders a thorough study of the matter and portrays its "institutional concern" by the situation. Thus, he asks the EU Justice Commissioner to address the Spanish institutions and PPLA President, Pablo Married, to claim them, highlights, a "change of attitude, democratic mood and respect for constitutional institutions."
In the Charter to the Justice Commission, the magistrates that make up this judicial association insist that the married PP has thrown by land, ensure, "agreements that were practically closed" and emphasize that their leader "has refused to adopt others by Electoral and partisan interests ".
"For this purpose, several excuses, ranging from the veto that some parliamentary groups participate in the negotiation, the presence as judges of judges who condemned said party by corruption, the reform of the system of choice and, at present, some indulce Determined by the Government, "says the magistrates belonging to this Association of Progressive Sensitivity.
In this sense, blames the popular ones to maintain an "obstructive and antidemocratic" attitude, which in its view is also extensible to institutions that are pending renewal, such as the Constitutional Court, the Court of Auditors or the Ombudsman. "In short, this political party has been established in a kind of constitutional insumpeation, refusing to this renewal despite the unequivocal legal mandate," he says.
The Judicial Group also devotes a wide range of radiograph that, according to his vision, is the current situation of the highest step in the Spanish judiciary.
The CGPJ, Razona, "is paralyzed, with serious operating abnormalities, there is no future project, it is not planned to meet the needs of citizens and meet the requirements of the judiciary, and the independence of the judiciary is not guaranteed, Fundamental mission of the CGPJ ".
The current CGPG leads in a situation of blockade two years and seven months despite the fact that the judiciary, through non-associated and election guarantees within the judicial associations, has proposed 36 candidacies to designate 12 judicial provenance vowels, Remember JJPD to Europe.
"It would be unthinkable that every four years there were no elections, so it seems equally antidemocratic that the current composition of the CGPJ is maintained without the changes that the Constitution orders," adds the association in his letter.
The magistrates also remember that Parliament rejected the reform of the Organic Law of the Judicial Power, a norm that regulates the system of choice of CGPJ, and that, however, "the Popular Party has raised that it is essential to accept an agreement."
For these magistrates, the situation in which the Governing Body of the Judges is currently in Spain is "unacceptable", since Article 122.3 of the Constitution establishes that the Council, as a Government Body of the Judiciary, has a composition that It must be updated every five years.
Finally, the Judicial Association Judges and Judges for Democracy have requested interviews with the leaders of all parliamentary groups that, "with the exception of D. Pablo Married, President of the Popular Party, share the concern for this situation," add in the letter The European Commissioner.Updated Date: 26 July 2021, 19:50
