"A call to the third room of the Supreme Court, a political interference in the judiciary and an attack on the division of powers." The Deputy Secretary General of Citizens, Edmundo Bal, could not be yesterday more forceful when interpreting the words of the Justice Minister, Pilar Llop, who considers "quite unlikely" that the Supreme Court deems the resources of several parties, including CS, and Null the indults of the Proctors.
The Holder of Justice said in an interview with the country that does not know what the Contentious-Administrative Hall of the Supreme is going to make the Supremo, but he argued that "it is quite unlikely that this happens from the legal point of view."
For Edmundo Bal, that is "to try to influence" in the Supreme so that it to dictate a dismissive judgment of the contentious-administrative resources presented against politicians condemned by the Proc.
It was not the only criticism received by the head of justice.
The Secretary of Justice and Interior of the PP, Enrique López, affirmed that the government of Pedro Sánchez "must think about the independence of judges and not in political emergencies." He also referred to the requests made by Pilar Llop yesterday in Asturias so that the PP has "sight height" to renew the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) and "Avoid many dysfunctions in the ordinary work of the courts and courts that They impact negatively on citizenship. "
López: "What the Socialist Government must do and the Minister of Justice is to read what Europe asks: the renewal of the CGPJ, but, at the same time, that we work in an imminent reform that allows the members of the Judiciary to be elected Directly by the judges. The Government has to abandon that obsession against the judiciary. "
The concerns of political opposition about the pressure of the government on the judiciary coincide with those of many jurists, among them who were the general prosecutor of the State Consuelo Madrigal, which on Sunday assured in the world: "That the executive power wants to control The judicial power is evident, that it has been undermined in its independence is also a fact. What has no paralan is a statement like that. " Madrigal was referring to the first public appearance of Pilar Llop, an alocculation without granting questions, in which he opened openly the sentence that declared unconstitutional some aspects of the alarm state decree.Updated Date: 08 August 2021, 15:39
