BARCELONA, Nov. 9 (EUROPA PRESS) -
The member of the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) José María Macías said this Thursday that the rule of law "must be considered abolished" after the approval of the future amnesty law that is part of the investiture agreement of the socialist candidate for the reelection as President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez.
In an interview on La2 and Ràdio 4 reported by Europa Press, he stated that the purpose of the amnesty is to constitute a government and that any law with that justification would never be constitutionally acceptable: "Managing for the sake of commanding is not a legitimate justification."
He has maintained that the opinion of the interim president of the CGPJ (who on Tuesday said that he had voted blank for the institutional declaration against the amnesty for assuming a political position) is not "greater or better" than the hyperqualified majority, in his opinion, of the plenary session. .
He has also predicted "a situation of impasse" if the courts go to the Constitutional Court (TC) or the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), so the amnesty will not have immediate application.
Macías has defended that his position is not "hasty" nor is the request from the European Commissioner for Justice, Didier Reynders, to find out more information about the scope of the law, since it is not good news that crimes are left without the corresponding punishment. , in his words.
