This December will mark four years since the end of the General Judicial Council (CGPJ), elected in December 2013. The current directors, headed by Carlos Lesmes, who will serve a five-year term, are about to take office. reach nine. And interestingly, this delay can only be achieved by Congress, as the People’s Party outright rejects the proper deliberation of a new Council, requiring three-fifths of both Congress and the Senate. While the votes of the PP and PSOE are retained, the PP’s judicial horizon continues to dim: it will now fall into very serious abuses committed by the State security forces, dedicated by former Minister Fernández Díaz to making false reports to discredit his political party. enemies (Kitchen operation).
Likewise, this extension, which violated the constitutional duty, took place at a time when the PP was scrutinized on multiple judicial fronts for its corruption and corruption. The immoral course of the conservative establishment was such that the head of the Government, Mariano Rajoy, was dismissed in June 2018 with a no-confidence motion that led to a left-wing government.
One might think that the political blockade of the CGPJ had little or nothing to do with the corruption of the People’s Party – and many well-meaning citizens undoubtedly do. But after a certain age, people stop believing in systematic coincidences, and it is clear that there is and still is an intolerable, unhealthy relationship between politics and justice. The PP’s compliance with the Constitution is as follows.
Strictly speaking, the law is the same for all and we are all equal before the law. But the truth is not that simple. Laws must be interpreted by the judges in the spirit of the constitution, and this interpretation yields margins of arbitrariness, which in Spain in some matters are too wide, which is absolutely unavoidable.
Let’s look at something like glass, for example: responsibility watching Let’s say no one blamed the PP leadership for the management of its treasurers or for the criminal networks of raising funds to finance the party. No one called Esperanza Aguirre to account for the misdeeds of her most direct subordinates that turned CAM into a real thief’s nest…
In the case of EREs, where the abusers had a socialist father, something very similar was on trial: the control of the former heads of the community over the patronage distribution of public money. And, as is well known, the decision made public a few days ago (the decision was made known weeks ago) accuses Chaves of lying and Griñán of lying and embezzlement. Prevarication is punishable by jail terms that Griñán should in principle go to jail, as well as disqualification and embezzlement. In particular, of the five judges of the Second Circuit of the Supreme Court of Appeals who decided on the case, three people who voted in favor of the sentence – Juan Ramón Berdugo, Eduardo de Porres (speaker) and Carmen Lamela – were considered “conservative tendencies according to the media, while those who strongly opposed this sentence – Ana Ferrer and Susana Polo- progressive and owned by the association. Judges for democracy. It is difficult not to observe an ideological bias, as we agree that there are no coincidences.
The attentive reader will know that the situation is not unique and that countless such “coincidences” can be exhibited. Making fun of one another, for in this it is common sin.
Confirming this prejudice is very disturbing to everyone and must be fought by the judges themselves. In fact, a controversial former judge compared a blockade to a coup, as some of us think. Maybe it’s not that bad, but it’s undeniable that democracy is at risk because of this.
