The Albacete Provincial Prosecutor's Office is investigating whether the PSOE advisor in the City Council agreed to the Local Police exams, as denounced by the Popular Party. "Given the complaint made by a political party" on February 9, the Prosecutor's Office "initiated two proceedings." The first, related to "the alleged offer to a temporary City Hall worker of the post-2019 opposition exams. The second, related to the possible leak of questions from the multiple choice exam carried out in 2023."
The adviser, Diana González, has been summoned as an investigated and her ex-husband has answered the questions of the Prosecutor's Office as a witness, as this newspaper has learned. EL MUNDO reported the messages for which Diana González was fired. In 2019, when the mayor of Albacete, Emilio Sáez, was Councilor for Security and, among other functions, was in charge of managing the Local Police, the adviser wrote "I have just been offered the Albacete City Council Local Police exam for future oppositions... And I'm not going to reject it". A few months later, already in 2020, González acknowledged her intention to run for the opposition. "I'm going to stop going to human resources commissions from today." She advised the Councilor for Personnel, María José López Ortega. Now López Ortega is also Councilor for Security.
The majority union of the Local Police has requested the recusal of Ana Cristina Verdú Aroca from the court that must qualify the agents who apply for two Inspector positions. In the messages revealed by this newspaper, the name "Cristina" appears, which, according to the municipal sources consulted, would hide the identity of Verdú Aroca, a member of the PSOE executive and head of the Citizen Protection service of the Provincial Delegation of Finance and Administrations Public of Castilla-La Mancha. "A trust charge from Page." Verdú Aroca's file on the list of the Socialist Executive has been withdrawn in recent days from the website of the PSOE in Albacete.
At the request of the spokesman for the popular group, Manuel Serrano, the plenary session of the City Council has called an extraordinary plenary session on Monday in which the creation of an investigation commission will be voted on. The PP has requested the appearance of the mayor and his Councilor for Security and Personnel. On the agenda, only the appearance of the councilor is scheduled. The commission of investigation tries to verify if in the previous years there were more leaks of examinations of access to the public function. "The mayor clings to a technical report. The report establishes that only members with a delegation can appear, that is, councilors. When Diana sends the messages, Sáez had Security powers. Now she tears her clothes off but does not want to explain where he has to give them, which is the plenary session", add the same municipal sources.
In the last elections, Ciudadanos agreed with the PSOE to take turns as mayor. They signed a government pact that divided the legislature between Vicente Casañ and Emilio Sáez. The regional president of Ciudadanos, Carmen Picazo, condemned the alleged leak at the door of the socialist headquarters in Albacete. "These practices cannot be consented. For us, corruption is neither agreed nor forgiven," she slipped a possible liquidation of the pact. "We believe that explanations must be given at a political level and know what actions are going to be taken." Municipal sources point out that Picazo's intervention "felt badly among the Ciudadanos councillors." Emilio Sáez considered this appearance "outrageous".
