The PSOE-PP pact on the Court of Accounts separates the directors who carried the ‘procés’

  • Marshal of Ghent and those who made up the Chamber of Justice will no longer be part of the supervisory body

  • The extensive renewal of its directors leaves only two considered progressive in nature untouched

The Court of Accounts was rarely news, and its renewal was less often, especially when it coincided with that of other constitutional bodies, such as the Constitutional Court. But the causes and procedures related to the illegal 1-O referendum change everything. So much that the focus was on expiration of the mandate of the current directors of the supervisory body before it even occurred. In the list of the names agreed by the PP and the PSOE to replace them only two councilors remain and none has had any relationship with the ‘procés’.

Among those who will leave the Court of Auditors when the effective renewal takes place, scheduled for in about three weeks, is the ex-minister of the PP Margarita Mariscal de Gante, which was the one who, in turn, had been charged with the prosecution of the piece whose instruction is about to conclude, the one relating to the allegedly irregular expenditure made by the Generalitat for the disclosure abroad of the 1-O, in which a settlement was set provisional 5.4 million euros that the former presidents had to contribute Artur Mas and Carles Puigdemont, the former vice president Oriol Junqueras and other 31 exalted positions of the Generalitat.

So far the instructional phase has been in charge of the instructor delegate Hope Garcia, which is part of the workers of the Court of Accounts who are not elected by the parties, so it will continue in the supervisory body. His work in any case is nearing completion, because it only remains to verify that the guarantees provided by ERC and by the defendants themselves, replacing those of the Catalan Institute of Finance (ICF), for which the Government created the Complementary Risk Fund, are enough to consider the fixed amount contributed.

Nor in the resources

In addition to Marshal of Ghent, they will not remain in the Court of Auditors either Jose Manuel Suarez Robledano, current president of the Prosecution Section, nor Felipe Garcia, ni Maria Antonia Lozano, which until the renewal will continue to be in charge of resolving the appeals that are presented against the decision of the examining delegate to reject the guarantees of the Government, although it seems difficult to give them time to do so considering that some have been presented this Friday . Sources from the Court of Accounts tell EL PERIÓDICO that work will continue with total normality until the new directors take office and assume the corresponding procedures.

The brand-new distribution of councilors benefits the PSOE against the PP as it occurred in a ratio of seven to five in favor of the ruling party. The two counselors who repeat, Enriqueta Chicano and Dolores Genaro, were also appointed at the proposal of the PSOE in 2012. And Podemos has been attributed the designation of Luis Antonio Ortiz de Mendívil, who was a lawyer for a former party manager in the Neurona case, in which several pieces related to his alleged irregular financing are being investigated.
