The chief prosecutor of the Inspection, Maria Antonia Sáinz Gaite, has opened the procedure by delegation of the fiscal lieutenant Juan Ignacio Campos, as EL PERIÓDICO has been able to confirm in judicial sources familiar with the decision. According to these sources, the formula used by which Lieutenant Prosecutor Campos delegates to the Chief Prosecutor of the Inspection is due to the fact that the news that appeared refers to the actions of the FGE, Dolores Delgado.

“The previous information is opened by the Inspection by delegation of the State Prosecutor General, but as in this case the claim and the news refer to the Attorney General Dolores Delgado, to avoid a possible conflict of interest, she is not going to intervene, “explained the source.

Disciplinary record?
