Practically a year ago, specifically the day November 23, 2020, four men assaulted in the middle of the street a freight van belonging to the MRW company hired by the family’s lawyers Pujol in order to move from Madrid to Barcelona all the computers, pen drives, tablets and mobile phones of the former president of the Generalitat and his children that since 2014 were in the power of the National audience, in the framework of an investigation for alleged money laundering, as La Sexta has advanced and EL PERIÓDICO, a newspaper belonging to the same communication group as this medium, has confirmed.

The judge had agreed to the return of this material, at which point the assault took place. It all happened at 7:45 p.m. on Avenida de Entrevías in Madrid. The carrier was driving a FIAT Ducato with the labels of the MRW company loaded with merchandise in order to transfer it to a central warehouse, from which it would be sent to the offices of the Barcelona legal cabinet that defends the Pujol family, investigated for alleged money laundering and for his hidden fortune in Andorra.

The events were almost like a movie. A black SUV with tinted windows crossed in front of the van when it had stopped at a stoplight. Four hooded men armed with revolvers they smashed the windows of one of the vehicle’s windows and forcibly removed the driver, forcing him to lie face down on the ground. One of the assailants then got into the Fiat Ducato and the assailants fled with the two vehicles. Hours later, the van appeared burned in a nearby field.

As recorded in the judicial proceedings opened in a Madrid court on theft, among the stolen material there is 15 pen drives, 8 computers, various monitors, mobile phones, memory cards, tablets and DVDs seized from all members of the Pujol family in the records carried out as a result of the investigation into the hidden fortune in Andorra.

The Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office requests nine years in prison in the ‘Pujol case’ for the former president of the Generalitat Jordi Pujol Soley for the crimes of illicit association and money laundering that he understands he committed along with the rest of his family, “at least since 1991”, with “the huge amount of money” that they hid in Andorra, as a result of “favoring certain businessmen so that they were awarded the various public tenders of the Catalan public administration “.

The Public Ministry requests the highest penalty for his eldest son, Jordi Pujol Ferrusola, who adds 29 years in prison for those same crimes plus those of falsification in a commercial document, five against the Public Treasury and frustration of the execution, a crime that he also shares with his ex-wife for the apartment they sold to their daughter. His ex-wife, Mercè Gironès, faces the second highest penalty: 17 years. For Josep Pujol, the request for punishment remains in 14 years in prison for illicit association, money laundering, tax crime and falsehood. The rest of the brothers, Pere, Oleguer, Oriol, Mireia and Marta, they face eight years for the first two offenses.
