ANDL ESPAÑOL has contacted Ginés to find out his version of the Central Operations Unit (UCO) investigation. In the first call, the rather nervous agricultural businessman denied his own identity, assuring the journalist that “he is the wrong person”, but in the second call has attacked the media, as well as the immigrants who have come to their land for years and to other farms in the town to carry out the olive campaign: one of the engines of the Villacarrillo economy.
Gines: Man, if it’s my friend the journalist. Tell me tell me.
Journalist: Are you calmer?
Gines: I am relaxed. I have peace of mind what does he give me not having done anything because you are messing all this up. You have practically sixty seconds to ask me what you want. I’m not going to waste time with a rat, a scoundrel rat like you journalists are.
You have no shame: Okay? Because what you are doing with my family and what you are doing with me: you have no shame, you are sold, some sold to all the filth that comes from outside, you don’t care about yours, because, fuck you or not, I’m one of yours, and you’re one of mine.
What you are doing there for selling a few lines of the press is not being ashamed at all. Why don’t you wait until it is seen if that is the house of horrors and then you pronounce yourselves? Why do you have to make this sangria? Why sell a little? But don’t be ashamed. Tell me. Answers. You don’t know how to answer? Gives you no shame?
Journalist: I’m listening to you with all the education in the world. I have not insulted him. The only thing I’m trying to do is find out your version of the Civil Guard investigation.
Gines: Hang up.
The UCO has confirmed to this newspaper that screening of the garage and the house of Ginés will end this Thursday. ANDhe Court of Instruction number 1 of Villacarrillo shall appreciate if the sweep for Search rests biologicals of the two Africans extends to the land with oliveares What does Gines have? in the estates of El Molinillo and La Moratilla.
for now, andhe agricultural entrepreneur attend inspections as investigated. and unsometimes plus, Gines has resorted to the lawyer Leopoldo Rubiales: the same one who defended him in 2016 when he was acquitted of the forced disappearance of Malian Tidiany Coulibaly. On that occasion, Gines He faced sentences of 16 to 24 years after what the canine unit of the Civil Guard trace the farm of La Moratilla.

For its part, Elton, the dog specialist in detecting corpses and who located the body of Diana Querit stoppedeither Y framework one of the olive trees The body of the Malian was not found and there was no crime of enforced disappearance: heto Provincial Court of Jaén only condemned Ginés for crimes against the workers by labor exploitation, against the Administration of Justice, and for electric power fraud.
The prison sentences imposed on the businessman totaled two and a half years and the fines 11,400 euros. Its Ta judgment put an end to one of the darkest episodes of history dand Villacarrillo because ofdinners of africans mobilized on the streets denouncing the murder of your compatriot Tidiany. Nine years later, the neighbors revivedin thatthe nightmare with the investigation of the Civil Guard about the whereabouts of Senegalese Ibrahim. Some believe in the innocence of Ginés and others suspect that he is behind the disappearance of the two African day laborers.
The town is divided with the son of ‘Los Correas’: an agricultural entrepreneur who, before earning a living in the fields, also worked putting tapas in the family bar ‘Vivir sin dormido’. The residents of Villacarrillo consulted by this newspaper define Ginés as “a normal guy”, “sensible”, “coherent”, “educated”, “meticulous” and “a bit lonely”.
The businessman routine is reduced to taking care of their farms, “going for a walk”, “playing tennis”, “going for walks with their two children and their wife, an employee in a notary’s office” or “having a drink with other farmers, be it a beer or a coffee”. But the UCO believes that there is something else behind Ginés: that thin guy with glasses, with a seasoned character like his mother.
A spokesman for the Central Operating Unit crosses out of “identical” the case of the disappearance of the Senegalese Ibrahima Diouf in 2021, with respect to that of the malian Tidiany Coulibaly in 2013. The reason is because the trail of heyou two african temp it got lost after maintaining alleged disagreements over working conditions with his foreman: Ginés VL

His last word when we talked was: ‘my boss is coming to charge’. Chen coppergrabthe I would buy a bus ticket and he would call me back to tell me he was on his way.sa call from the bus never came. “That day he I called twice and the telephone Already i had it off“, as Mussa continues. “The last person Ibrahim spoke to was his boss.” insist. “She had to pay him money, but she didn’t tell me how much.”

– Musa: He told me that I was working too much and not getting paid a dime. She spent nine hours in the olive for 45 euros. She wanted to come with me to work in Huelva. It was the first time that she worked in Villacarrillo, she had been working there for less than two months. He told me that he did not feel well, he worked a lot, he could not rest, he had no money, and he did not like it because he only worked, ate and slept.
