The minister of the Interior in office, Fernando Grande-Marlaska , dismissed the legislature with a loud sit-in at the Congress of Deputies. The Commission of the Interior had asked for a unanimous court, and gave him to choose any day of this week, but the minister at functions has not been well either, and has answered that it has "commitments" with other institutions that make impossible his / her appearance.
last Wednesday, September 11, met the Board and the Board of Spokespersons of the Committee on Interior Congress , and all the parliamentary groups, including the Socialist, agreed to request the attendance of Grande-Marlaska. In the order of the day of the appearance it had three points: Prison , the fence and Melilla and acts of glorifying terrorism .
The Commission gave the choice to the minister on functions Wednesday or Thursday of this week for his appearance, but Grande-Marlaska rejected by commitments "international". The Commission of the Interior offered him, then any day of the week, and the response from the S secretariat of State of Relations with the Courts this was signed on the 12th of September:
"I have the honour to inform you that the minister of Interior functions as a national and international commitments with other institutions , whether acquired prior to, during the next week, that make it impossible to his appearance , leaving it available as decided by the Commission to its conclusion at a later date".
last week, it was already quite predictable that the political stalemate ending in the current situation, without discussion of endowment, and with the dissolution of the Cuts planned for next Tuesday 24 September . When the elections are announced, also will dissolve the commissions and requests for appearances shall be dropped, so Grande-Marlaska will get rid of appear to refuse to do so any day this week. It will be the Standing committee to take the witness during the election period.

" The minister had no objection in appearing , but with so little time is difficult, because there are that fit with their agenda, and it's complicated."Updated Date: 18 September 2019, 23:01
