The purple accused Batet of yielding before the "pressure" of the Supreme -al that they pointed out for "pressing" the congress - and of the "extreme right" and announced a complaint against the president of the low chamber by prevarication.
Shortly after, from the CGPJ the pouring attack on this matter was harshly criticized by the Minister of Social Rights and Leader, Ione Belarra, who accused the Supreme "Press" at the Table of Congress: "Get to attribute the Commission of a Crime to its magistrates absolutely exceeds the limits of the right to freedom of expression, especially when the one who carries out these manifestations is a member of the Executive Power, "said the CGPJ in a statement.
We can be censored, in addition, by its partner in the executive. Since the PSOE, after knowing these facts, it was defended to Batet and was emphasized that in Spain there is judicial independence: "The judgments can be resorted but can not be informed," said socialist sources before highlighting the "scrupulous compliance" that Batet did of your duty.
Much more forceful towards the position adopted by we can be the PP. Its president, Pablo Married, gave directly to but Sánchez the "immediate" cessation of Belarra for accusing the Supreme "Cometer a crime".
"In any serious government, a minister who accuses the Supreme Court of committing a crime would be unemployed immediately," said Marriedo, who affolded "the attack on justice and institutions" by "Sánchez's radical partners and his Ministers.
