The ex-commissioner José Manuel Villarejo said Monday that there was a "lack of political will to investigate the intellectual authorship of the attacks" of 11-M in a statement in which he says he has asked to testify on this matter before the judge of the Hearing National Manuel García Castellón.
José Manuel Villarejo is in provisional detention investigated for alleged various crimes, among which are bribery, money laundering, criminal organization, discovery and disclosure of secrets and extortion.
"I have asked to appear voluntarily before the judge to give a statement about what I knew and reported in my police capacity in relation to the attacks of March 11, 2004 in Madrid, and in light of the fact that it can help clarify, finally, the true responsibility and authorship of that monstrosity, "he says in his statement.
Villarejo states that his mission as a police officer in information work and undercover agent was to inform his superiors of the information he was collecting so that if they considered it he would reach the judicial authority.
"I have to confess in relation to the 11-M that if there are lines of investigation that were ignored or abandoned and have remained in hiding for 15 years, it could only be due to neglect, recklessness, irresponsibility and, in some cases, it shows a concealing attitude and, in any case, lack of political will to investigate the intellectual authorship of the attack, "he adds.
Villarejo explains that he is at the disposal of the judge so that all the pertinent verifications with objective data are carried out on his actions under suspicion.
"With this, the citizens are going to situate in a different dimension, and I do not doubt that in many surprising cases, certain political, economic, social and other events are certainly sad or not very presentable in the recent history of Spain," he concludes.
