The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has once again left the door open to reform the crime of embezzlement. “We are going to wait for the parliamentary process”, he repeated this Thursday twice in the Congress of Deputies.
If in recent weeks Moncloa has cooled the possibilities of also making changes in this crime, now the president’s words indicate the exact opposite.
In the prelude to the parliamentary debate to repeal sedition, Sánchez has been asked up to two times if there is a real intention to reduce the penalties for embezzlement. The president, far from denying it, has indicated that this matter will be decided during the “parliamentary process.”
On the bill to reform the Penal Code that will be voted on this Thursday in the Lower House, Sánchez recalled that he expressed his “will to Europeanize and standardize this reform of the Penal Code to the standards of European democracies.”
