Covid noted the process: del "we manage like a motherfucker" al "there are corpses in trucks"

The coronavirus defeated the independence leaders and forced them to put their plans in quarantine. The punctures phone calls ordered by Judge Joaquín Aguirre in the volhov case believe that the leaders of the process They tried to use the pandemic to put it at the service of separatism, but they crashed with reality.

The independentistas tried to demonstrate that the Generalitat is capable of managing the pandemic better than the rest of Spain, in order to seduce the most skeptical Catalans who had not yet joined the process.

However, the reality was very different and the one who described it most crudely was David Madí, former press officer and adviser to Artur Mas.

In a telephone conversation intervened by court order in 2020, after the first weeks of confinement, Madí reveals that the then number 2 of the Department of the Interior, Brauli Duart, had recognized that the management of the pandemic is “absolute chaos“because the experts of the Generalitat”they have no fucking idea“.

According to this conversation, the Departments of Health and Justice of the Generalitat admitted that “they would not be able to cope with the avalanche of deaths.” To the point that in Igualada (Barcelona) “the corpses had to be deposited in refrigerated trucks. A lot of people are dying and the incinerators will not be able to cope,” Minister Miquel Buch’s number 2 was honest.

“It’s to hang them”

David Madí indicated to the former PSC position Ignasi Carnicer that “it is better that the doctors take charge of the management of the pandemic, because the Administration is a drama. They are explaining to me what happens through the residences and it is to hang them all. When this is over, accounts must be passed because it has cost many lives.”

The Secretary General of the then Vice President Pere Aragonés, Albert Castellanos, was also concerned about this issue, who expressed to Xavier Vendrell his fear that the poor management of the health crisis in nursing homes would come to light, where the pandemic claimed thousands of lives. .

These statements show to what extent some independence leaders were far from reality, who claimed turn the pandemic into an opportunity.

First of all, to do business (as David Madí himself did). And secondly, to show the most skeptical Catalans and the rest of the world that the Generalitat is capable of managing the health crisis better than the rest of Spain. They failed in this second purpose.

take advantage of the pandemic

The former Terra Lliure terrorist and former Minister of the Interior Xavier Vendrell had a plan for the independence movement to emerge “reinforced” from the Covid crisis, which he exposed to the then Vice President Pere Aragonés, his Secretary General Albert Castellanos and Marta Rovira (fugitive from the Justice in Switzerland).

“At this stage we can’t say, because the numbers are not with us“, Vendrell explained to Albert Castellanos, in a conversation intervened by court order in 2020, “but we have to ensure that within four months the figures, in this case economic, and if they could be the health ones as well, allow us to say: we have managed like a motherfucker and we have come out much better than the rest of the State“.

The former leader of the ERC Xavier Vendrell and the current spokesman for the party in Congress, Gabriel Rufián.

Vendrell also proposed to number 2 of Pere Aragonés an idea to take advantage of the fact that millions of Catalans had accumulated their savings, during the almost four months of confinement in the spring of 2020, in which they could barely leave the house to spend.

figures of failure

Xavier Vendrell wanted the Generalitat to take the opportunity to issue a kind of patriotic bonds, “on paper or through the Blockchain system”, which citizens could then exchange for services such as local tourism, restaurants or culture, to reactivate consumption.

But the independentistas (Vendrell is one of the brains of the process and Tsunami Democràtic, according to the judge) were never able to consummate these plans. Catalonia registered that year 2020 significantly worse results than those of the Community of Madrid, both in the health and economic fields.

Catalonia closed 2020 with a per capita income of 27,812 euros (compared to 32,048 euros in Madrid), a per capita debt of 10,362 euros (double the 5,122 in Madrid) and a mortality rate of 10.2% (compared to 9.8% in Madrid). All this while keeping the flight of companies and international investments initiated after the illegal referendum of 1-O.

Even today, despite applying much more restrictive measures (such as the Covid passport, the closure of nightlife or the curfew in the most affected municipalities), Catalonia maintains a 14-day cumulative rate of 3,771 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, higher the national average (3,192) and much higher than the figure for Madrid (2,408). The dream of surprising the world with the good management of the pandemic is over.

“Hosts to the PSOE and Podemos”

The telephone interventions show how the procés deflated during the first year of the pandemic. On July 28, 2020, Xavier Vendrell exploded with indignation at the return of the 1-O prisoners to prison after the Supreme Court ruling:

“¡It is time to give hosts to the PSOE and we can, this is savagery, they are sons of bitches!”, Vendrell raged in conversation with the head of ERC communication, Sergi Sol.

“Let Tardà come out right now,” he added, “and tell the socialist comrades that they stop being socialist comrades and become socialist bastards. If they don’t do anything to get my comrade Oriol Junqueras out of the bag… Shit on God, the joke’s worth it”.

Before hanging up the phone, Vendrell showed himself “hurt by the son of a bitch bearded“, he pointed out in reference to the fugitive from Justice Carles Puigdemont.

Business with the Covid tests

Despite the fears expressed above, David Madí took advantage of the pandemic to do business. Thanks to his political contacts, he was able to get the Generalitat to award him a contract to carry out tests in prisons.

In their reports sent to the judge, the Civil Guard records that Artur Mas’s adviser he circumvented the confinement to go play golf in Manresa (May 19, 2020) and, two days later, to meet with his lawyer and a businessman at the PGA Catalunya Resort Golf in Gerona. Those attending this meeting “in case they stopped them at a police checkpoint and discovered that they were carrying golf clubs“, Notes the Civil Guard.

Xavier Vendrell wasted no time either. The summary of the case Volhov it shows that he used his contacts with the ERC management to do multiple deals, not always with success.

He managed to get the Cabrera de Mar City Council to reclassify the Villa Bugatti estate (whose value thus went from 5 to 10 million euros), got the Generalitat to irregularly award him a contract of more than 400,000 euros to carry out laboratory analyzes and used the ERC spokesman in Congress, Gabriel Rufián, to try to obtain a millionaire contract at an airport in Bolivia, as reported by EL ESPAÑOL.

They circumvented the confinement

Vendrell also used his influence on the then Minister of the Interior, Miquel Buch, to circumvent the restrictions due to the Covid pandemic established by the Generalitat itself. To present his Villa Bugatti project, he organized a party with 440 guests in June 2020, when gatherings of more than 10 people were not allowed.

Despite acknowledging that the contagions were still soaring in Catalonia, the number of the Department of the Interior, Brauli Duart, guaranteed him that the Mossos would only carry out controls on the access road to cover appearances: “It’s all scenery“, he warned.
