The Prosecutor’s Office maintains the request for five years in prison for Luis Bárcenas in the trial that has been held since last February in the National Court for the uses that the Popular Party made of the money that its B box. The anti-corruption prosecutor Antonio Romeral has raised to finalize the main conclusions of his provisional indictment and maintains the aforementioned jail request for the former manager and treasurer of the conservative party.
As he explained to the Chamber, the prosecutor modifies his conclusions by introducing an extenuating circumstance for the repair of the damage for Unifica, the architecture company that made the reforms of the PP headquarters, for having made the payment of the civil liability that the Prosecutor’s Office foresaw. “We thus appreciate mitigating the impact it has on the penalty,” explained the prosecutor Romeral. In addition, it has indicated that, as a result of the evidence practiced, it has suppressed some of the facts as constituting a crime, although it has advanced that these modifications do not affect the criminal responsibility of the defendants.
