“A call to the third room of the Supreme court, a political interference in the judiciary and an attack against the division of powers. ” Citizens, Edmundo Bal, could not be more forceful yesterday when interpreting the words of the Minister of Justice, Pilar Llop, who considers “quite unlikely” that the Supreme Court estimate resources of several parties, including Cs, and annul the pardons of the procs.

The head of Justice said in an interview with El Pas that she does not know what the Contentious-Administrative Chamber of the Supreme Court is going to do but said that “it is quite unlikely that this will happen from a legal point of view.”

For Edmundo Bal, that is “try to influence” the Supreme to issue a judgment rejecting the contentious-administrative appeals filed against the politicians convicted by the trial of the procs.

The deputy secretary general of Cs made a recommendation to the minister: “Do not exhaust yourself with these statements, the Supreme Court will judge you with authentic independence, as the judiciary always does, which is the containment dam against separatism.” Therefore, the person in charge of Cs assured trust that the appeals are not dismissed “And these people go back to jail, where they will never leave again.”

It was not the only criticism received by the head of Justice.

The secretary of Justice and Interior of the PP, Enrique Lpez, affirmed that the Government of Pedro Snchez “must think about the independence of the judges and not about political emergencies.” He also referred to the requests made by Pilar Llop yesterday in Asturias for the PP to have “high sights” to renew the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) and “avoid so many dysfunctions in the ordinary work of the courts and tribunals that negatively impact the citizen.”

López: “What the socialist government and the Minister of Justice have to do is read what Europe is asking for: the renewal of the CGPJ, but, at the same time, that we work on an imminent reform that allows members of the Judiciary to be directly elected by the judges. The Government has to abandon that obsession against the Judiciary. “

The concerns of the political opposition about the government’s pressure on the judiciary coincide with those of many jurists, including the former State Attorney General Consuelo Madrigal, which on Sunday said in EL MUNDO: “That the executive branch wants to control the judiciary is evident, that it has been undermined for some time in its independence is also a fact. What is unparalleled is such a statement.” Madrigal was referring to Pilar Llop’s first public appearance, an address without concession to questions, in which she openly questioned the sentence that declared some aspects of the State of Alarm decree unconstitutional.
