Three judicial associations have jointly asked the government that “prevents” the approval next Monday by the Council of Europe Assembly of a report that questions the actions of the Spanish Justice in the procs.

“Putting into question the quality of democracy in Spain and the work of the Courts and their defense of fundamental rights, insinuating a complicity in the ideological persecution of its citizens, constitutes a fallacy that must be repaired, avoiding the consolidation of statements without grounds that damage the image of Justice and the perception of Spain, as a State with full guarantees, “states the document signed by the Professional Association of the Magistracy, the Judicial Association Francisco de Vitoria and the Independent Judicial Forum. He has not signed the progressive and third representing Judges and Judges for Democracy.

The report, prepared by the deputy of the Latvian parliamentarian Boris Cilevics, which according to the associations has been aligned with the thesis of those convicted in the trial of 1-O. “Statements are made that call into question the objectivity and transparency of the Judicial Power in Spain and its commitment to guarantee the freedom and fundamental rights of all citizens.”

“Diplomatic instruments”

The associations urge the Government to “deploy the diplomatic instruments in their hands to prevent the approval of the draft declaration.” In addition to the fact that there is hardly any margin because the vote is on Monday, the truth is that some statements in the report support the government’s plans to pardon the convicts and to reform the Penal Code.

The main complaint of the judges is that the sentences are considered to have been produced by mere political discrepancies. The statement recalls the excellent rating given to Spain in the most relevant rankings and that the Council of Europe’s own anti-corruption body – El Greco – highlights the independence of Spanish judges.

“Putting into question the quality of democracy in Spain and the work of the Courts and their defense of fundamental rights, insinuating a complicity in the ideological persecution of its citizens, constitutes a fallacy that must be repaired, avoiding the consolidation of statements without grounds that harm the image of Justice and the perception of Spain itself, as a State with full guarantees, “says the letter.

In addition to the Government, the document urges the parties with representation in the Assembly of the Council of Europe to ask them in the debate “to clearly state that the declaration radically departs from the reality of the functioning of judicial bodies in Spain.”

Likewise, it asks the General Council of the Judicial Power to pronounce “officially” on the report and publicly denounce “the falsehoods and inaccuracies” it contains in order to “avoid” a statement that “damages the prestige of the Judicial Power and the necessary confidence in its rectitude. functioning towards the citizens “.

Deputies of the PP and the PSOE presented, separately, objections to the report, but only one of its amendments was incorporated. The usual thing is that the Assembly approves the texts that pass the filters until the vote.
