He says that the decision of the TS on the Arandina case shows that the sentences are being reduced and criticizes that he refuses to change his legal "botch"
MADRID, 29 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The leader of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, has charged harshly this Tuesday against the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, after the "assault" on the Constitutional Court and has assured that "now it is clear why they refused to depoliticize the Judiciary". He has also alluded to the pronouncement of the Supreme Court on the application of the "only yes is yes" law in the framework of the "Arandina case" and has criticized the Executive for refusing to change its legal "botch".
"I don't know how this government will go down in history, but I do know that it will be remembered as the worst in democracy just by reviewing some of its actions," Feijóo declared, in a message on his official Twitter account, which has collected by Europa Press, alluding to the phrase that Pedro Sánchez pronounced this Monday assuring that he will go down in history for "having exhumed the dictator".
In the first place, Feijóo has referred to the decision of the Council of Ministers approving the appointments of the former Minister of Justice Juan Carlos Campo and the former director general of the Ministry of the Presidency Laura Díez, without waiting for the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) designate the other two who complete the third of four magistrates pending renewal.
According to the head of the opposition, it is "a new assault on the institutions", by "placing" in the Constitutional Court "a minister and an adviser". "Now it is clear why they refused to depoliticize the Judiciary and blocked an agreement," he stated, alluding to the negotiation to renew the Judiciary.
Secondly, Feijóo has referred to the pronouncement of the Supreme Court on the application of the 'law of only yes is yes' in the framework of the 'Arandina case', establishing that the sentence may be reduced for those convicted of sexual crimes due to the entry into force of the new standard, although it has insisted on the need to analyze it on a case-by-case basis.
"La Arandina's is yet another sentence that means that sexual offenders do not receive the penalty they would have if the Law of only yes is yes was not in force," said the head of the opposition, who has criticized Sánchez for continuing " refusing to amend his legal "bottleneck" when "there are already dozens who have seen their sentences reduced."
In addition, in the same message the president of the PP has mentioned the tragedy in Melilla on June 24, assuring that "a new video is announced for this afternoon that shows that the Minister of the Interior lied to the Spanish people and to Congress, and that what happened in Melilla was far from being "well resolved", as Sánchez said".
It is expected that this Wednesday the headline will appear before the Interior Commission of Congress. Last Friday, the parliamentary groups saw the viewing of the videos behind closed doors and the PP once again demanded the resignation of Marlaska.
