The Supreme Court admits Griñán's annulment incident, which does not suspend or paralyze his entry into prison


The Supreme Court has admitted for processing the motion for annulment presented by the defense of the former president of the Junta de Andalucía José Antonio Griñán against the sentence that ratified his sentence of six years and two days in prison for prevarication and embezzlement in the case of the ERE fraudulent and arbitrary aid to companies.

Legal sources have specified to Europa Press that the admission to process "does not suspend or paralyze" the execution that orders the entry into prison of the socialist leader. Already on November 15, in an ordering procedure to which this agency has had access, the court warned that nullity incidents do not suspend the execution of the sentence.

The same sources have assured that the magistrates of the High Court have transferred the Griñán incident to the Prosecutor's Office and the rest of the parties in the procedure -the State Attorney's Office and the popular accusation exercised by the PP- so that they can pronounce on the regard. The magistrates will listen to the accusations before deciding on the request of the former Andalusian president.

Last week, Griñán asked the First Section of the Seville Court to extend the 10-day period set for his voluntary imprisonment by "three months". According to his defense, it is necessary to "avoid compliance (of the prison sentence) that could be unsuccessful, improper, unnecessary, or inappropriate."

The socialist leader's lawyer insisted that if he were granted a partial pardon or if the nullity question for which the reduction of the sentence to two years is considered, "the imprisonment that is ordered would be unsuccessful, improper or unfair".

The request of the former president of the Board took place two days after the Seville Court denied his request for suspension of sentence and gave him 10 days to voluntarily enter prison.

The Supreme Court magistrates will study the motion for annulment presented by Griñán after concluding in his sentence that the socialist leader had "knowledge of the illegality" of the system implemented, pointing out his "passivity" in the face of the "waste and arbitrariness" with which they were granted the AIDS.

The court considered that Griñán "had a central role in the elaboration and approval of the budgetary norms as a consequence of the powers assigned to their positions." "It is reasonable to presume a high level of knowledge of these rules as well as of the problems that could arise in the preparation of budgetary instruments," the sentence added.

In the resolution, however, a particular opinion formulated by two of the five members of the court was issued, regarding the classifications applied to Griñan and other convicts.
