MADRID, 21 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Minister of Justice, Pilar Llop, has assured that the file has not yet been opened to process the petition presented by the family of the former president of the Junta de Andalucía José Antonio Griñán in order to grant a measure of grace to the former socialist leader , sentenced to six years in prison for prevarication and embezzlement.
This is how the head of Justice responded to the PP deputy Carlos Rojas, who asked the Government during the control session in Congress if the Executive is going to pardon the former Andalusian presidents Manuel Chaves and José Antonio Griñán after knowing the sentence of the ERA case.
"You ask me to rule in advance on a case that we have not even opened the file for," said the minister, later accusing the 'popular' leader of carrying out a "strategy" to "get populist juice" from the sentence issued on September 14 by the Supreme Court which, as he recalled, "has two dissenting votes".
"Do you think that this minister is going to pronounce without having collected the reports?" He added, referring to the texts that the Public Prosecutor's Office and the High Court must provide.
Within the framework of his speech, Llop stressed that the Government of Pedro Sánchez "is not the Government of the Kitchen", in reference to the procedure followed in the National High Court to investigate the alleged vigilante espionage of former PP treasurer Luis Bárcenas .
"Take a mirror. Mirror, magic mirror, which party has been convicted of corruption. Let's see what it tells you. Apply the story," the minister snapped.
During the debate, the deputy has insisted - as the general coordinator of the PP did yesterday in the Senate - that the Socialists "have not apologized" for the management of Chaves and Griñán of the ERE.
In line, he stressed that "if the Government pardons the former presidents of the PSOE, it will be damaging confidence in justice and breaking its word not to pardon for corruption." "The PSOE cannot pardon the PSOE, it was in the ethical code of the PSOE", he added.
