Grande-Marlaska has assured in the Senate that the new sanctioning regime against the tributes to prisoners and leaders of ETA is “really advanced”, although awaiting the evaluation of the European Commission regarding the crime of exaltation within the directive 2017 / 541 on terrorism.
“We do not have a single draft or a proposal,” Amelia Salanueva pointed out, referring to the reform of Law 29/2011 for the Comprehensive Recognition and Protection of the Victims of Terrorism to promote the fines against the tributes, due to the limited success of criminal proceedings against acts of exaltation and humiliation of the victims.
The PP has reproached him for not calling for the commission of hate crimes before each tribute to ETA prisoners, as will happen on September 18 with one of Henri Parot, responsible for 39 murders, as well as when a PP militant suffers an attack in the Basque Country or after altercations in front of the Higher Police Headquarters in Vía Laietana in the last Diada.
“He is not in a hurry because he cannot use it politically,” he argued, adding that “he lied” and this “is already bloody.” In this sense, Salanueva recalled the rapprochement of prisoners after ending the dispersal without demanding collaboration from the Justice, affirming that Grande-Malaska is a “scorched minister” who has no other option but to resign.
Grande-Marlaska has resorted to Covite data to maintain that with the PP Government there were more acts of tributes to ETA prisoners, noting that in 2017 there were 48 compared to 20 in 2019 and 19 in 2021. It has also made him ugly. to the “popular” who “confront victims” between hate crimes. “The important thing is to have a State that defends us all,” he pointed out.
The Interior Minister has indicated that the Government “works for the victims” and that any act of this type is “constitutive of an offense to the most dignified group”, referring to the victims of terrorism, and also to “democratic values” .
In his speech, Grande-Marlaska has compared his management at the head of the Ministry with that of the PP governments to argue that under his direction “operations like the Kitchen are not organized.”
In the same session of the Senate Plenary, UPN has defended an interpellation in which it has demanded that Grande-Marlaska “do what has to be done”, but that it be done quickly to avoid these tributes to prisoners and leaders of ETA , due to the offense it entails for the victims.
