Telephones, computers, folders, documents, invoices and any other effect. The judge has ordered the Congress of Deputies to empty the office of former socialist deputy Juan Bernardo Fuentes Curbelo, Tito Berni, and all the effects are delivered to the experts in telematic crimes of the National Police. Including, if necessary, “modifying the access codes to them if they appear in them facts related to the crimes investigated.”
The owner of the Court of Instruction number 4 of Santa Cruz de Tenerife In this way, he agrees to the request of the investigators, since «the criminal evidence (against Curbelo Sources) overcome the barrier of mere conjecture and enter fully into the field of rational evidence of criminality of a crime of corruption, bribery, influence peddling, falsehood and belonging to an organized group».
The judge maintains that it is a measure “exceptional” but also “proportional”, and it is the most suitable and unique at this time to find out the identities and movements of those investigated to know the existence of other participants in the plot of the Tito Berni.
In addition, argues the magistrate, Fuentes Curbelo lacks the parliamentary immunity that the Congress of Deputies enjoys having renounced the minutes four days before his arrest.
Consequently, the judge claims the president of Congress, Meritxell Batetthat it provide “authorization and collaboration” so that the Technical Secretariat of the Congress is in charge of emptying the office of the Tito Berni and transfer all its effects to the National Police. The car of the head of the investigation follows the trail of the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor who opposed the search of the office of the Tito Berni and proposed that all their devices be seized instead with the permission of the General Secretariat of Congress.
In her order, the magistrate continues to place the socialist deputy Fuentes Curbelo as the leader of the political branch of the criminal bribery organization. His request for the delivery of all the effects of Tito Berni It is not wrong, since prior to this request it asked the Congress of Deputies for information on the effects that could exist in the office of the former deputy. Congress responded that in the office of Fuentes Curbelo there is still documentation, a computer and personal effects.
