Former adviser to Podemos this Monday before the judge for the theft of her mobile

The judge in the Villarejo case, Manuel García Castellón, takes this Monday a face-to-face statement to the former adviser to Podemos, Dina Bousselham, within the framework of the piece that investigates the theft of her mobile phone in 2016 to extract the data from her card and that were found in the possession of the ex-commissioner.

As legal sources have informed Efe, the judge has decided to maintain his appearance as an injured party - the second for this case - after Bousselham, on the one hand, and Villarejo's lawyer, Antonio José García Cabrera, on the other, asked for the suspension. of the statement, legal sources have informed Efe.

Both claimed the court to be able to access a copy of the mobile data intervened in Villarejo before the appearance, to which García Castellón refused in a car, to which Efe has had access, arguing that the delivery of copies is "a risk inadmissible to which the legitimate interests of the injured parties would be exposed. "

However, it gave them the possibility of "appearing in the secretary of this court in order to proceed to the examination of the dumping of the computer effects brought to the proceedings," and, as reported by Vozpopulí, Bousselham chose to go last Thursday to the National Court to consult those contents.

Villarejo's lawyer also alleged to request the suspension of this appearance "the difficulties of displacement due to the state of alarm and for health and protection reasons."

Given this circumstance, the magistrate has allowed the lawyers represented in this piece of the Tandem case, number 10, to follow the appearance through a videoconference system, according to the aforementioned sources.

With this new summons, the judge intends to clarify the details regarding the theft of the cell phone of the former adviser to Podemos, who announced a few days ago that he was leaving the party to run a digital newspaper called La Última Hora.

The phone, as she herself related in her first statement, was stolen from her in a commercial establishment where she was with her partner, who was later also called to testify.

The removal of the mobile occurred in the months prior to the negotiations to form a government in 2016 and it is investigated whether it is related to an alleged political espionage against the Iglesias party or whether it was only, as Villarejo stated, an act of revenge or spite .

After the robbery occurred, the material extracted from the cell phone of the former adviser to Podemos arrived at the Interviú newsroom in an anonymous envelope.

That is why ex-director of Interviú Alberto Pozas was called to testify, who explained that after reviewing it, they considered that these data were not publishable.

He confirmed that he was the one who gave Villarejo the "pendrive" with the copy of the phone data that was found in the registry of the former commissioner's house because he requested it, while the president of the Zeta Group -editor of Interviú- , Antonio Asensio, decided to give the mobile card to Pablo Iglesias.

In this way, part of the version that Villarejo himself gave in this regard was confirmed, revealing that it was Pozas who gave him that "pendrive", a finding that led to the journalist's accusation for alleged revelation of secrets and that led him to resign from his post as director general of National Information for Moncloa.

With the content of the USB stick, according to Villarejo's own version, the ex-commissioner prepared a report that he elevated to his superiors and in which he indicated that the content of the device lacked "police interest", so he filed it, as he did with all his works.

However, Podemos maintains that this robbery is part of an operation to discredit the party and in which the so-called Pisa report on the alleged Iranian and Venezuelan financing of the purple formation would be framed. A police report that appeared to have been produced by the UDEF, but had no signature or seal, and was rejected in all courts.

As stated in one of his writings, the representation of Vice President Pablo Iglesias, also represented as a victim in this piece, Villarejo's discovery of Dina's mobile data, "and its use by the Okdiario media" appears to be "framed in a presumed order of the Government of the PP to damage the electoral results of Podemos".
