SEVILLA, 9 Ene. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The First Section of the Court of Seville has transferred to the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office and the PP, the forensic report prepared by the Institute of Legal Medicine (IML) on the serious illness that occurred by the former socialist president of the Junta de Andalucía José Antonio Griñán, sentenced to six years and two days in prison for embezzlement in the financing mechanism of fraudulent employment regulation files (ERE), demanding the suspension of his imprisonment.
In an order issued this Monday, disseminated by the Communication Office of the TSJA and collected by Europa Press, the First Section of the Hearing transfers said forensic report to the Prosecutor's Office and the PP, enabling a period of "three days" to that such parties rule on the request of the former Andalusian president to suspend his imprisonment for said serious illness, specifically prostate cancer.
All this, after at 11:59 p.m. on January 2, the ten-day period authorized by the First Section of the Seville Court for voluntary entry into Griñán prison expired, the former Minister of Finance Carmen Martínez Aguayo, the former Minister of Innovation Francisco Vallejo, the former Minister of Employment and Technological Development José Antonio Viera, the former Minister of Employment Antonio Fernández, the former director of the IDEA agency Miguel Ángel Serrano and the former Vice Minister of Innovation Jesús María Rodríguez Román.
All of them were sentenced to different prison terms for embezzlement in the aforementioned mechanism or "specific procedure" for financing fraudulent EREs and arbitrary subsidies to companies, together with the former Director General of Labor and Social Security Juan Márquez and the former Deputy Minister of Employment Agustín Barbera.
However, after the Supreme Court reduced Juan Márquez's prison sentence from seven years and one day in prison to three years, when appreciating the analogous mitigation of repairing the damage, the First Section of the Court agreed to suspend one year his imprisonment pending the result of the partial pardon petition requested by his defense to the Ministry of Justice.
In the case of Agustín Barberá, although the First Section of the Court dismissed his appeal in the sentence execution phase, it did agree to suspend his imprisonment until the suspension of execution of the sentence requested by the court is processed. his defense based on article 80.4 of the Penal Code, regarding the case in which the prisoner is afflicted with a very serious illness with incurable conditions, pending a report by the forensic doctor.
After that, the court required Griñán, the former Minister of Finance Carmen Martínez Aguayo, the former Minister of Innovation Francisco Vallejo, the former Minister of Employment and Technological Development José Antonio Viera, the former Minister of Employment Antonio Fernández, the former director of the IDEA agency Miguel Ángel Serrano and the former Vice Minister of Innovation Jesús María Rodríguez Román, so that within a period of ten days ending this past Monday, January 2, they "voluntarily enter" prison.
However, the defense of José Antonio Griñán then alleged that he had recently been diagnosed with a serious illness, requesting again the suspension of the term of imprisonment with respect to this defendant, in accordance with that reason.
In view of this, and once the medical documentation provided by Griñán's representation had been seen, the First Section of the Hearing ordered that a coroner from the Institute of Legal Medicine examine the documentation and make an examination of Griñán if necessary, so that he could issue a report "assessing whether admission to a prison could have an impact on the development of the disease or on the prescribed treatment".
Meanwhile, former councilors Antonio Fernandez, Francisco Vallejo, Carmen Martinez Aguayo and Jose Antonio Viera, former IDEA director Miguel Angel Serrano and former deputy councilor Jesus Maria Rodriguez Roman have already entered prison.
