The Civil Guard maintains the “spirit” and the “illusion” of being able to find new indications about the disappearance of Tomás Gimeno and his daughter Anna, and that the last two days before the transoceanic vessel leaves Tenerife Ángeles Alvariño, who found the body of the other sister, Olivia, serve to “shed more light” on the investigation.
This is how the general director of the Civil Guard, María Gámez, responded yesterday to questions from the press about how it is planned to act after the departure of the ship scheduled for tomorrow, after 19 days of tracking.
“We are confident that in these two days that we have left we can conclude the investigation” and that “they will bring more light to the investigation into the disappearance of the father and the other sister” and thus close a chapter “tremendously painful “And that shows” to what extent “vicarious violence” can harm that mother, family, friends and the hearts of all the people of this country, “Gámez lamented.
And it is that the Civil Guard maintains the “illusion” because it still has “the means” -the ship- and the “knowledge” fruit of the “intense work” of investigation of the Civil Guard, which has determined the search areas and the points more likely to find evidence.
However, Gámez has acknowledged that finding these new signs is “only a future possibility”, so, when asked what will be done after the departure of Ángeles Alvariño from Tenerife if Anna and Tomás Gimeno are not found, he replied that ” the Civil Guard does not end or consider any case closed until all the conclusive evidence is available ”.
In this sense, the agents will be “in the hands” of the gender violence judge who is handling the case, who will determine “how far to go” with the investigation, explained the general director of the Civil Guard.
In this regard, it should be remembered that as long as the death of Tomás Gimeno is not certified, his possible criminal responsibility for the death of his daughters (at least that of Olivia) will not be extinguished, and, therefore, the procedure will remain open in the judged.
Finally, Gámez has thanked the Spanish Institute of Oceanography for its collaboration after granting three extensions to dispose of the ship and the thirty people who make up the crew and who have worked “without rest for 24 hours a day” since May 30 . Likewise, he has shown “all the support and condolences” to the mother of the girls, regretting that, as the order made public indicates, it is now known that when he had the first meeting with the Civil Guard, the murder had already occurred, although then There was only evidence of a “non-delivery” of the girls to their mother by their father, and “we could not know any of the facts that unfortunately later have been brought to light.”
On the other hand, the Plenary of Congress observed a minute of silence yesterday to condemn all the deaths caused by sexist violence and, above all, the known murders in recent days.
The deputies present in the hemicycle began the first plenary session showing their solidarity with the families and relatives of the murdered persons, the last one the photojournalist Alicia Rodríguez, presumably at the hands of her partner in Marmolejo (Jaén).
The president of the Congress, Meritxell Batet, recalled the “anguish and pain” that Spaniards have shared over the deaths of sisters Olivia and Anna, at the hands of their father in Tenerife, and has stressed the need to accompany their mother in “these terrible days”, as well as the father of the four-year-old Yaiza, allegedly murdered by her mother in Barcelona.
Batet recalled that since the last time, three weeks ago, that the Plenary of Congress observed a minute of silence against sexist violence, five more women have died.
This act was promoted by the PSOE and the deputies of all the political parties have participated.
