The attorney for Gema Alcala, the wife of the retired commissioner Jose Manuel Villarejo, has requested this Thursday to the court that judges the couple for the macrocause Tandem to expel the popular prosecution of Podemos from the procedure, alleging that it uses this position to obtain information and make an “electoral use” of it, recalling that the National Court has already agreed to it regarding the PP in belt.
“We request the expulsion of Podemos as a popular accusation for breach of the principle of legality and article 125 of the Constitution,” said Alcalá’s lawyer, Sergio Nuño Diez de la Lastra, during the presentation of the issues prior to the trial held at the National High Court by three separate pieces of Tandem: Iron, Land and Painter.
Díez de la Lastra has argued that “the electoral use that he has given to all the facts that are recorded in the cause known as Tandem», Mentioning in this sense the so-called« patriotic police »and the one known as the« PISA report ».
Specifically, he has accused the ‘purple’ formation of having used the piece “politically” Dina, denouncing an alleged “collusion” with the prosecutors, with whom – he has argued – Podemos would have exchanged information that later would have been shared with “third parties unrelated” to the cause.
The defense attorney wanted to recall that there is already a known precedent in this regard. In 2013, the then investigating judge of the National High Court Pablo Ruz he expelled the PP as a popular accusation in the main cause in which the activities of the ‘Gürtel’ plot were being investigated.
In addition, Díez de la Lastra has anticipated a possible court decision also claiming that the bonds provided by Podemos to appear in these pieces be withheld in case they had to be used to compensate the people against whom the accusation has exercised.
