Finally, the
Minister of Health, Blas Trujillowill attend tomorrow, Wednesday,
Parliament to explain the details of
case Masks "assisted" by
Director of the Canary Islands Health Service (SCS), Conrado Domínguez.

The agenda of the
health commission was modified up to three times, after the
opposition criticized the attempt
Socialist Group to "control" this meeting.

After knowing the complaint of the
Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office against Domínguez himself and other directors of the SCS for
administrative prevarication and influence peddlingthe
President of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torresannounced that the Government was taking a step forward and would give explanations in the Autonomous Chamber.

In principle, the person in charge of doing it would be the Minister of Health. Later, it was noted that he would be accompanied by Domínguez himself.


However, in the order of the day published 48 hours before the session,
two appearances: the first, that of the counselor
at own request, as the president had announced. The second,
proposed by the Socialist Groupfrom the director of the SCS.

It was at this point that the "discontent" of the opposition arose when they pointed out that the president of the commission,
Inaki Lavandera (PSOE)would have closed with
Can the cancellation of Trujillo's appearance "so as not to expose the counselor" and that only the director of the Canary Islands Health Service give the explanations.

This decision provoked the "discomfort" and "great anger" of the opposition to understand that the Socialist Group used a "strategy to control the commission."


The conflict occurs because, according to the
Chamber Rulesin an appearance
at own requestthe Government speaks first and then the different groups in the Chamber
"for the same length of time".

However, if it is to
one-party proposalthe proponent is in charge of opening and closing the intervention shifts and therefore
longer than the rest.

In the end, yesterday evening an agreement was reached and
the forecast was that only Conrado Domínguez would appear that, although it was proposed by the PSOE, it would do so as if it were at its own request, which allowed all groups to have the same time.

But it wasn't the last decision either.
At the last minute, there was a new consensus so that the explanations are offered by the counselor Blas Trujillo on behalf of the Government "assisted" by Conrado Domínguez.


After the
Anticorruption prosecutor, Javier Ródenas, will present the
complaint against those responsible for the Canarian Health Service, the opposition parliamentary groups have demanded that the Government
"explanations" at the highest level and demand that the Government's priority be
recover the four million that were paid to
RR7 for the purchase of a million masks in full confinement that never reached their destination.

The President of the Government, Ángel Víctor Torres, has pointed out that he has already appeared twice in Parliament to clarify this matter and has reiterated that the will of his Cabinet has been none other than
“respond to the general interest”.

For his part, Conrado Domínguez has also stated in this regard that he has always acted
“Based on current legislation” and that the body he directs maintains full collaboration with the Justice.
