Gamarra sees "unpresentable that Griñán is going to be pardoned": "The pardon is being used politically"

He emphasizes that it would be a "political pardon", as happened with the prisoners of the 'procés' and makes Sánchez ugly that they have not apologized for the ERE


The general secretary of the PP, Cuca Gamarra, has assured this Thursday that it is "unpresentable that the former socialist president José Antonio Griñán is going to be pardoned" despite the Supreme Court's condemnation of the ERE case. After warning that it would be a "political pardon", as happened with those convicted of the 'procés', she has indicated that sentence must be fulfilled and has reproached Pedro Sánchez and the PSOE for not having apologized for this matter.

In an interview on RNE, which Europa Press has picked up, Gamarra has stressed that this is the "greatest conviction for corruption" in the history of Spanish democracy, in which he concludes that for "40 years a patronage network was generated by diverting more than 600 million for the benefit of a party to perpetuate itself in power".

"That money is from honest Andalusians who have paid their taxes and, however, others in an organized way made that money be focused on the PSOE ruling for 40 years in Andalusia. It is very serious, very serious," he has abounded.

The leader of the PP has criticized that the Andalusians have not heard so far not a single word of "apologies and forgiveness" from the PSOE. She, in her understanding, is the first thing that the general secretary of the Socialist Party, who is Pedro Sánchez, should have done.

The 'number two' of the PP has affirmed that it is not "up to what this country deserves" that at this moment there is talk of pardoning socialist leaders of that "plot" such as Griñán. "These pardons should not be produced. It is unpresentable that a pardon is going to be given and that the pardon is being used politically," she said, when asked if her party will appeal it if it occurs.

In this sense, he pointed out that the head of the Executive has also used the "political pardon with those convicted in the context of the procés" and also did so with women who "had been convicted for how they had behaved in relation to their children".

"Now we are talking about a pardon in relation to a case of corruption of this magnitude, telling the Spaniards that if you commit crimes of corruption, do not worry that when your party governs, it will pardon you", he stated, adding that this approach is "unpresentable" and the PP "absolutely censors" it.

As for whether he believes that Sánchez is really going to pardon Griñán, he has indicated that "he is putting stones in the way and it is the same path that he traced for the pardons of those who had been convicted of having questioned the constitutional order" , referring to the referendum of October 1, 2017 in Catalonia. "He is taking the same steps", he added.

According to Gamarra, if this pardon occurs, it would be showing that Justice "is not the same for everyone." "It would be a political pardon. We would be talking about the PSOE, in its capacity as Prime Minister, pardoning those who have been presidents of the PSOE," he emphasized.

As for whether he believes that Griñán should go to jail now, Gamarra has stressed that the sentence must be carried out and added that it will be up to the court to determine how it is enforced. Given the fact that there are two private votes in the sentence that indicate that the presumption of innocence is not respected, he has warned that it is "extremely dangerous" if the sentences in which there have been private votes begin to be questioned. "It is very dangerous to enter that area because in the end it is not to abide by the sentences," he added.

When asked if this pardon would complicate the dialogue between the PSOE and the PP to renew the governing body of the judges, she pointed out that one issue has nothing to do with the other. "We do not link them", she has finished her.
