Pablo Casado has accused this Wednesday of government to conceal the threat that weighed upon him from the Committees for the defense of the republic (CDR) arrested by the Civil Guard in 2019. “My chief of staff called his to see if there was any PP politician on the CDR list and he flatly denied it” while others were put under escorts to protect them from possible terrorist actions of the pro-independence radicals, Casado has revealed.

According to sources from the PP, in September 2019, in the middle of the pre-campaign of the general elections, Pablo HispnAt that time, Casado’s chief of staff, I telephoned Ivn Redondo and asked him if there was any PP position in the CDR’s sights.

Redondo, according to the sources, consulted the matter with the Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, and, minutes later, he returned the call to Hispan. “I have already spoken with Marlaska. Relax, there is no one from the PP”, was the textual response, according to the version popular.

These calls would have occurred several days after the police operation led by the Civil Guard broke out, which took place on September 23, 2019. The leadership of the PP learned hours after the arrest of the members of what the Civil Guard considers a “terrorist organization” that the State Security Forces and Bodies had just put security on at least one high-ranking figure of Catalan civil society, a businessman.

The PP was then considering the possibility that among the intervened documentation could be positions of the formation in Catalonia or even information about their headquarters in the autonomous community. In no case did he suspect, as the investigation has just proved, that the party’s leader, Pablo Casado, was among the possible targets of his violent actions.

But in The Moncloa they categorically deny it. The sources consulted assure that they will not enter into this type of controversy that, in their opinion, is based on lies.

“It is seen that they were too busy digging up dictators who died half a century ago to deal with terrorists who want to attack now,” Casado has ugly Snchez from the gallery of the Congress, in the debate on pardons. “Apparently, from the admissible democratic syrup, we have passed to the tolerable termite agent, only if it is against the PP, of course,” he added.

Casado has waited almost two years to tell it, because it has been now when it has been known that the Civil Guard has found Internet searches carried out by the arrested CDRs related to possible targets for their attacks. Among them are Casado or the former deputy of CitizensJos Manuel Villegas.

After finishing the call with Ivn Redondo, Hispn conveyed the content of the conversation to the leader of the party after Moncloa had firmly assured him that there was no threat against the party. And the president of the PP has not revealed it until this Wednesday-

In contrast to this sequence, the Civil Guard highlights in its latest report provided in the summary, that not only Casado but other public representatives such as the former Secretary General of Citizens, Jos Manuel Villegas, are among the intervened documentation. In fact, it highlights that the possession of this data reveals the intention to “carry out an action against said persons.”

The Armed Institute also maintains that the radicals planned attacks, sabotage and the assault on the Parliament in response to the sentence of the procs. And that for this they had “laboratories and material” to produce explosives and formed a “criminal organization” that also sought to act against “people linked to political parties opposed to independence” as well as against “an agent of the Mossos d’Esquadra corps. “.
