The new head of the Mossos d’Esquadra has dismissed the anti-corruption chief of the body, in what is understood as a warning both for the new holder of the position and for the rest of the former heads of the mossos in the Josep Lluis Trapero era. Toni Rodríguez, until now the person in charge of investigating the corruption of Catalan political leaders, has ended up in a police station in a city in the province of Barcelona that does not reach 80,000 inhabitants. Under Rodríguez’s command, Interior Minister Miquel Buch was investigated for the alleged illegal use of public funds to escort Puigdemont, who had fled in Belgium. He received so much political pressure that he had to ask the judge for protection. Listen to Aimar Bretos’ explanation about the apparent ‘purge’ within the Catalan police.
