The resources of Griñán and others condemned by the ERE begin their journey in the Constitutional


The appeals presented by the former president of the Junta de Andalucía José Antonio Griñán and others convicted of the 'ERE case' have begun their journey in the Constitutional Court (TC), which in its plenary session next week will accumulate them to the first to arrive to the court of guarantees, the one formulated by the former Andalusian counselor and former minister Magdalena Álvarez.

According to the agenda, the two Chambers of the TC will study the connection of the resources presented by Griñán and six other convicted persons: the former general directors of Labor Juan Márquez; of Budgets Antonio Lozano; from IFA-IDEA Miguel Ángel Serrano; and former directors Carmen Martínez, Antonio Fernández and Francisco Vallejo.

This procedure implies that, as they are appeals formulated against the same sentence, their connection to the first one that was presented against said sentence, which in this case was the one signed by Álvarez's defense, will be analyzed. The Constitutional Court has already connected the appeal of the former Andalusian president Manuel Chaves to that of the former minister, so the same decision can be expected, explain the legal sources consulted by Europa Press.

Specifically, that of Griñán has fallen to the Second Chamber, headed by the vice president of the TC, Inmaculada Montalbán, and with a progressive majority of four magistrates compared to two.

The sources emphasize that it is a mere internal procedure prior to the Constitutional Court deciding whether or not this battery of resources are admitted for processing.

Griñán's defense already announced last July that it would request the TC to protect him against the ruling of the Seville Court, and the subsequent refusals of the Supreme Court to revoke it, which sentenced him to 6 years and one day in prison for crimes of prevarication and embezzlement. Finally, he formalized an appeal last April.

Meanwhile, the Court of Seville has requested a new forensic report to determine if the pharmacological and rehabilitation treatment that Griñán has left for the prostate cancer he suffers from "is compatible with going to prison." Last January, the judicial headquarters suspended the imprisonment of the former Andalusian president so that he could complete his radiotherapy treatment, which -according to new documentation provided by the defense- has already concluded.
