“He is a fugitive from Parliament who should have stayed to oppose, but he ran away since the appraisal was repealed in the Canary Islands,” he says.
Santiago Perezsenator for the Community and councilor for Territory Planning in the City Council of La Laguna, considers that
Fernando Clavijo He is a fugitive from the Parliament of the Canary Islands who should have stayed at the head of the opposition, which is the place where the voters put him.
tried a match to remain president, despite losing the elections, but he did not succeed and left because this group of leaders of
Canarian Coalition (CC) is used to exercising power. And when they lose it they look like plucked chicks politically, intellectually and socially speaking," she noted.
Pérez remembers that Clavijo
he ran away since the appraisal for the deputies to the Parliament of the Canary Islands and the members of the Canarian Government was repealed, and he went to the Senate to use the Chamber that says it must be closed, to get appraisal.
Finding out -he adds- «means choosing the court that is going to investigate you, even judge you; to flee from the judge predetermined by the Law, from the natural judge, to break the principle of equality before the law, which is fundamental in our constitutional order, to choose a court. The
supreme courtwhich everyone knows is historically more politically influential, even because of the way some of its magistrates are appointed».
«As Clavijo believes that appraisal is a privilege s
e has allowed to say that he is going to resign. But appraisal is not a right of parliamentarians, it is a prerogative of the Chamber, so
he cannot continue being a senator and renounce the appraisalwhich is what he sought as a privilege, desperately fleeing from the Parliament of the Canary Islands and from the natural judge predetermined by the Law».
«Getting appraised is fleeing from the judge predetermined by Law, from the natural judge, breaking the principle of equality before the law to choose the court»
That Chamber, which he says is useless and must be closed, “has served him for at least three things: choosing the court, getting paid and not attending very important votes. And when he does, he usually votes alongside PP and Vox, the quintessential representation of State centralism, I'm not saying authoritarianism, of State centralism.
Things are brewing in a very shady space and the public has a right to know."
Santiago Pérez remembers that he was forced to take the
Case Repairs to the courts in compliance with a legal duty, after having warned him for more than a year in six different municipal plenary sessions. Faced with the demand that it was necessary to put an end to those practices
there was only disdain, contempt and continuity of criminal practices.
Some practices that
Clavijo was not invented by his mentor, Ana Oramas. What happens is that when we learned of the origin of these practices, the Oramas period was already prescribed from the point of view of criminal law.
They got used to "the abuse of power -he continues saying-, to the misuse of power in a subject as delicate as public procurement,
whose rules are not a whim of the legislatorbut are designed to guarantee the good management of taxpayers' money, the selection of the best offers, freedom of competition and the principle of equality of all companies.
Corruption and cleanliness of the democratic game
Experience teaches us that corruption enters the building of public institutions through two preferential routes: public contracting and urban planning. "And when I made these complaints, I also did so to
defend the fairness of the democratic game. Because sometimes I have had the feeling that CC had an inexhaustible electoral financing fund. It was overwhelming. And I always wondered where that money comes from.
Experience -he comments- «forces one to ask: when the Administration authorizes a company without public tender to continue with the management of municipal services once the contract has ended, what is it in exchange for? Because you are doing him the favor of continuing with a line of business that
provides benefits. If not, they would simply refuse to continue running those services."
«The criminal practices of the Reparos Case were not invented by Clavijo but by his mentor, Ana Oramas, but when we learned about the period of Oramas it was prescribed from the point of view of criminal law»
"Conceptually, it is in exchange for electoral financing, in exchange for benefits for public officials who do those favors or in exchange for the fact that in many of those companies
the people appointed by the municipal government are hired, a practice in which Clavijo is accredited, is an accomplished specialist. And when you fill the templates of companies with hundreds of workers, many of them without great qualifications, you may be placing the cousins, brothers, children and other relatives of many characters in the municipality who work hard in the campaigns in favor of Coalición Canaria . Because they believe, or so they are led to believe, that if the Government changes all their relatives and close friends, or even themselves, they will lose the job that was obtained for them.
