Balearic Islands, first CCAA to eliminate its anti-corruption office after the Parliament approved the PP transparency law

Rovira (PP): "The Office has not been especially brilliant in terms of prevention in the case of masks"

PALMA, 26 Mar. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The plenary session of the Parliament approved this Tuesday the Law creating the registry of transparency and control of the assets and activities of public officials in the Balearic Islands, promoted by the PP, and which in practice means liquidating, within a period of six months , the Office of Prevention and Fight against Corruption.

The approval of the rule already implies, at the time of its publication in the BOIB, the elimination of the position of director, which until now was held by Tòfol Milan, who has attended the plenary session of the Chamber. With this measure, the Balearic Islands become the first Autonomous Community to eliminate an organization of these characteristics.

Aside from the elimination of the Office, the rule contemplates that the declarations of assets and activities of senior officials will become partially confidential and that complaints cannot be presented under the protection of anonymity. For now, it will be an entity dependent on the Ministry of the Presidency that will guard the files that are being processed.

The norm creates the Transparency Registry as an administrative body attached to the Parliament and the Board, in charge of adopting the pertinent measures in relation to the material and human resources that are necessary for proper functioning. This record, says the law, will be reserved and, in addition, any access will be recorded.

The PSIB, which has criticized the Government for becoming judge and party, has already announced that it is studying the possibility of appealing the rule to the Constitutional Court (TC) and has accused the PP of acting "out of revenge" and the president of the Government, Marga Prohens, "for not supporting the investigation of the Campos plot in which she and her relatives could be involved."

The party's deputy spokesperson, Marc Pons, has warned that the law goes beyond the elimination of the Anti-Corruption Office and that it abolishes the sanctioning regime, increasing the feeling of "total impunity." For the socialist, by eliminating sanctions "it does not matter" to falsify the registry of assets and activities.

The PP deputy Mauricio Rovira, who has defended the proposal, has criticized that the PSIB uses "cases of corruption from many years ago" to attack the PP and defend the validity of what he has called "socialist office of persecution of the opposition." . The 'popular' has assured that declarations of assets and activities will continue to be "mandatory and accessible."

The PP deputy also recalled, resorting to irony, that the Office "was not particularly brilliant" in terms of prevention in relation to the Koldo case and the purchase of masks.

"Some were not very scared when it came to following orders to skip procedures, when making purchases with companies recommended by senior officials, when it came to forgetting to complain about products of poor quality and inferior quality of what was purchased, to expedite their payment despite everything, to certify that everything was correct when it was not, to try to sneak it into the European Union and forget to return the product and let it expire, to not claim the money paid with such agility," he said.

At the beginning, the plenary refused to request, at the request of Més per Menorca, a report to the Advisory Council in relation to the custody, by the Government, through the General Inspection of Quality, Organization and Services of the CAIB, of the files currently in the hands of the Office, about 200.
