The Attorney General of the State, Dolores Delgado, has summoned to attend this Wednesday the Fiscal Council, its advisory body, the chief prosecutor of the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor, Alejandro Luzón, and the chief prosecutor of the Technical Secretariat, his right hand, Álvaro García.
Sources from the Anticorruption Prosecutor’s Office confirmed to questions from EL PERIÓDICO that Luzón will attend the conclave, apparently to report on the progress of the Tándem-Villarejo case after the prosecutor Ignacio Stampa was removed from it.
García is the one who, according to the papers of the State Attorney General’s Office (FGE) published by EL PERIÓDICO, went to the Prosecutor’s Office of the Superior Court of Justice of Madrid (TSJM), which was conducting proceedings against Stampa on alleged revelations of the Tándem-Villarejo summary , instructions in the form of “suggestions & rdquor; to extend the investigation when on two occasions, in October 2020, two archival decrees were sent to him for considering Stampa innocent.
These instructions and communications between the FGE and the TSJM were part of the file opened at the TSJM. They were handed over to Stampa when he requested them to exercise his defense. They showed that the FGE was actually directing the proceedings behind the TSJM. The proposed file, on October 5 and 23, 2020, was denied on the grounds that further proceedings were needed.
The objective, presumably, was to keep them open because on October 27, 2020, the Fiscal Council was held, which had to assign eight places in the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office.
These proceedings had such an impact on the media that the Association of Prosecutors, to which Stampa belonged, supported the proposal of the State Attorney General’s Office not to grant him the position “due to media pressure & rdquor; existing. A pressure fed by some proceedings, now it can be verified, inflated and extended at the request of the FGE.
Judicial sources indicate that Attorney General Delgado is trying to get a statement from the Chief Anti-Corruption Prosecutor Luzón in the Fiscal Council to the effect that Stampa’s dismissal has not had negative consequences and that it now has more prosecutors in the 30 pieces that make up the plot. Tandem-Villarejo.
The appearance of García, his right hand, is a way of transferring the material responsibility to make the suggestions that it made to the TSJM to keep open the proceedings against Stampa and thus remove the splashes that have stained it.
The State Attorney General, on the other hand, has not requested the appearance of the two prosecutors who proposed the filing of the proceedings on October 5 and 23, 2020, the instructor in the Superior Court of Justice of Madrid, Lieutenant Prosecutor Carlos Ruiz de Alegría, and the Superior Prosecutor of the TSJM Jesús Caballero Klink.
They, precisely, were the recipients of the new procedures that the chief prosecutor of the Technical Secretariat, Álvaro García, proposed to them each time the filing decree was sent.
