MADRID, 6 Mar. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Minister of Justice, Pilar Llop, has assured this Monday that both the Government and the PSOE have "zero tolerance" with corruption, something that she believes was demonstrated with the expulsion of the socialist deputy Juan Bernardo Fuentes Curbelo, alias 'Tito Berni' --one of the presumed leaders of the "Mediator case"--, while he has demanded the "same forcefulness" from the rest of the political forces.
"Regarding the 'Meditor case', from the Government and from the socialist party, zero tolerance towards corruption", Llop said in statements to the press in the framework of the Justice and Equality Days that his Ministry has organized on the occasion of the International Women's Day, March 8.
Llop has argued that this "has been demonstrated in this case because at sixteen hours the person who was involved in this matter, who had an office in the Congress of Deputies, was expelled from the party and was required to hand over the minutes" .
"In this case, what is required is that all political forces, all without exception, have the same yardstick and act with the same forcefulness, that they have the same level of tolerance for corruption, that is, zero tolerance. ", he indicated.
He has also alluded to the recent whistleblower protection law, a transposition of the European directive known as the 'whistleblower' directive, as an example of the "commitment" of the Government and the PSOE to "the fight and fight against corruption".
