El excomisario José Villarejo.

Cadena SER has had access to new recordings of former commissioner José Manuel Villarejo that reveal the close relationship he had with the then head of the UDEF, José Luis Olivera, and the alleged economic relationship between the two that the National Court is investigating. In fact, Villarejo even offers Olivera his share to buy a car, but the head of the UDEF asks him to keep saving it for him.

This is an excerpt from the recording of a meal, which took place at the beginning of 2010, between Villarejo and Olivera In which a former agent participates, a collaborator of the alleged leader of the Tandem case, who puts on the table of those who were high-ranking police officers the interest he has in two ongoing investigations: the Gürtel case and the Pretoria case, which is the one that captures all the attention of Villarejo. Both court cases were being investigated, at that time, by former judge Baltasar Garzón.

Villarejo bets, in front of the then head of the UDEF, to “dismantle” the investigation that affected the old Convergence “charging a result, but with a small provision of funds”. The strategy is to talk to Garzón, target prosecutors and use the media.

The National Court and the Anticorruption Prosecutor’s Office are investigating whether the Villarejo plot paid Olivera, head of the UDEF between 2006 and 2012, in exchange for promoting, stopping or withdrawing the investigation of those investigated who will pay for their services to the former commissioner’s companies.

Anti-corruption argued in a report last July that there are “serious indicative elements about the possible existence of economic agreements between the criminal organization around the Cenyt Group “, whose head is former commissioner José Manuel Villarejo, and José Luis Olivera, former head of Udef and CITCO, now retired.

By virtue of these agreements, Olivera would have protected Villarejo’s illicit actions, “in some cases by providing him with information on secret police operations, and in others, such as in Kitchen, allowing their planning and execution despite knowing their illicit nature.”

Pretoria case (exploded view)

The Pretoria Case, the urban corruption scheme that operated for almost a decade in the metropolitan area of ​​Barcelona, ​​ended with 11 convicted at the National High Court. Former PSC deputy Luis Andrés García received the highest prison sentence: seven years in prison that the Supreme Court later lowered to four years.

Bartomeu Muñoz, former mayor of Santa Coloma, was sentenced to five years and eight months in prison. Jordi Pujol’s collaborators in the years of the CIU governments, Lluis Prenafeta and Macià Alavedra confessed, agreed and were sentenced to less than two years.

According to the ruling, the defendants wove between 2002 and 2009 a whole network of corruption in the metropolitan area of ​​the province of Barcelona to participate in different urban operations and, instead of favoring the public interest, enrich themselves: “They sought to obtain high returns economic for promoters and private investors, providing significant benefits and commissions “.
