The Government contemplates with perplexity the war unleashed in the PP as a result of the alleged investigation of Isabel Díaz Ayuso commissioned through a Madrid City Council company for a contract granted to a friend. And he takes the opportunity to attack the leader of the main opposition party. “If this corruption was known by Génova and Mr. Casado, why didn't he report it?”, the Minister of the Presidency, Félix Bolaños, has asked.
The award of 1.5 million to a friend of Ayuso unleashes a war in the PP between accusations of espionage
"It's the usual PP", he replied to himself after assuring that "being in the opposition should have helped the PP to regenerate itself, but it continues with the same practices as always: espionage, illegal commissions and covering up corruption" , said Bolaños, recalling other episodes of battles within the PP.
"It is sad news," lamented Bolaños, who has assured that "Casado's PP is the usual PP." The Minister of Finance, María Jesús Montero, has subsequently said it is "inadmissible": "I hope they give the necessary explanations so as not to produce doubts or uncertainty." The minister has pointed out that if there are suspicions of any irregularity, it should be put in the hands of Justice. The Madrid PSOE has already announced that it will file a complaint with the public ministry and has raised an investigation commission in the Madrid Assembly, in addition to demanding the appearance of Ayuso.
"This is very serious news that shows that the PP of Casado continues with the same corrupt practices as the PP of Rajoy and Aznar. It is time for the PP of Casado to give explanations," said the PSOE spokesman, Felipe Sicilia, who also wants the mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez Almeida, to account for whether he has made "a Kitchen II" after recalling that "Kitchen I was to spy on Bárcenas and destroy evidence" and Ayuso to explain " that suspicious contract that affects his brother".
According to El Mundo and El Confidencial, people close to the national PP tried to find out if Díaz Ayuso's brother had taken a commission in exchange for a 1.5 million euro contract awarded by hand to a friend. The mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez Almeida, has assured that he investigated the alleged espionage assignment to Ayuso from a municipal company and found no evidence.
The leadership of the PP investigates that contract that revealed elDiario.es from October and demanded explanations from Ayuso herself, as published this Thursday by El País. The Madrid president limited herself to answering that if they had any suspicions they should ask her brother, Tomás Díaz Ayuso. In the PP they suspect that there are "irregularities" around that concession.
