Definitive folder to the investigation on the Podemos solidarity fund

The Provincial Court of Madrid has rejected the appeal of the former senator of Podemos, Celia Cánovas, to which the ultra-right formation Vox joined, against the closure of the investigation decreed by the investigating judge regarding the existence of a solidarity fund in training policy, which according to the initial complaint for a crime of unfair administration, served to defray the expenses of the party leaders.

The court, chaired by magistrate Carlos Martín Meizoso and also made up of Ignacio José Fernández Soto and Alberto Molinari López-Recuero, has issued an order of which the latter has been in charge of drafting it, rejecting the appeal and gives definitive closure to this piece of the Neurona case because there is no recourse against it.

The magistrates, according to the instructor of court number 42 and the Prosecutor’s Office, understand that no crime could be committed because entity 404, which received the funds, allocated them to the purpose of the same, which were none other than organizational aspects and acquisition of various material, or transportation and lodging expenses, made by the workers of the company, never by political representatives of the formation like Rafael Mayoral, against the complaints made.

The court, after detailing the total expenses incurred, the concepts and the people who incurred in them, to the cent, concludes that “there is no evidence of the existence of distraction of the funds received by the Podemos party directed to their leaders.”

He adds that “there is no rule that prohibits donation to entity 404”, nor “none of its members holds an organic position or directive role in the party”, so the formation of managing the entity cannot be accused. Neither loyally nor unfairly.
