United We Can and the independentistas blame Fernández Díaz in their conclusions about Kitchen
Unidos Podemos, ERC, EH Bildu, Junts and the CUP have registered this Monday a joint text of conclusions of the commission of inquiry into the espionage of Luis Bárcenas –The so-called Operation Kitchen– which has been developed in Congress during the last year, taking as proven the existence of a "parapolice structure" created by the Ministry of the Interior during the government of Mariano Rajoy, "operative over time under the orders of DAO Eugenio Pino, with the knowledge of the Director General of the Police, Ignacio Cosidó, the Secretary of State Francisco Martínez Vázquez and the Minister of the Interior Jorge Fernández Díaz ".
The Kitchen commission fails to collect substantial information on the case
In the text, to which elDiario.es has had access, the groups consider that under the mandate of Fernández Díaz "a so-called 'patriotic police' was built, operationally directed by Eugenio Pino, sustained over time and that carried out various actions with partisan interests (obstruction of investigations, persecution of political opponents, promotion of prospective investigations, creation of apocryphal reports) to attack political rivals, or as in the case of 'Operation Kitchen', organize a monitoring device and surveillance of the environment of Luis Bárcenas with the purpose of taking away information that he had in his hands and separating it from the judicial processes ".
The strategy to be followed by this so-called 'patriotic police', say Unidos Podemos and the pro-independence forces, "was the recruitment in July 2013 of Sergio Ríos Esgueva at the time the driver of the Bárcenas family and a trusted person of Rosalía Iglesias" . "At first, the person responsible for recruiting Sergio Ríos was the Chief Commissioner and head of the UCAO Enrique García Castaño, but failing in his purpose, it was the Commissioner on leave of absence Andrés Gómez Gordo, who already knew Sergio Ríos for having agreed with him in Castilla la Mancha, the one who convinces him to work for the 'patriotic police' ", they remarked.
For these parties, "it is noteworthy that at that time Andrés Gómez Gordo was in a situation of special services since he was Director of Documentation and Analysis of the Government of Castilla la Mancha under the orders of María Dolores de Cospedal, a position he held since the year 2011 to 2015 ". "His double work as an advisor to Cospedal and carrying out police tasks recruiting confidants and paying with Reserved Funds is a clear sign of incompatibility and therefore a crime," they indicate.
The use of reserved funds
In addition, the signatories highlight that "in exchange for the information provided by Sergio Ríos, he was paid irregularly by the Reserved Funds at the rate of 2,000 euros per month." "Sergio Ríos worked as a driver for the Bárcenas family from February 2013 to August 2014. He was recruited by the 'parapolicial' structure as has already been said in July 2013 and was being paid with Reserved Funds until September 2015. Another of the perks that were offered to Sergio Ríos for his collaboration as a confidant was that of entering the National Police Corps, "they sentenced.
According to annotations in the agendas of former commissioner Villarejo cited by these parties, "the birth of Operation Kitchen would take place on July 11, 2013." "From July 25, 2013 to February 12, 2014, a surveillance device is carried out on Rosalía Iglesias in charge of UCAO resources, under the operational responsibility of the main commissioner Enrique García Castaño, on the orders of DAO Eugenio Pino and with knowledge of the Secretary of State Francisco Martínez Vázquez and the Minister of the Interior Jorge Fernández Díaz. Throughout the month of October 2013 and, based on García Castaño's own statements in the Commission, he entered without a court order into the study of Rosalía Iglesias on Díaz Porlier street and supposedly gets relevant information, "they point out.
The conclusions also take as proven that also in October 2013 García Castaño pressured Sergio Ríos "to provide him with information on Bárcenas." "The 'cook' provides him with two iPhones without sim or battery. García Castaño makes a copy of the information on a pen drive and hands it over to Francisco Martínez Vázquez. García Castaño keeps a copy of the information. the information the commissioner acquires against Reserved Funds computer equipment for a value of 1905.82 euros ", they add.
In addition, they point out that "on October 23, 2013 Enrique Olivares, posing as a priest, breaks into Bárcenas' house and kidnaps Rosalía Iglesias, her son and a domestic help who was at that time in the house and demands that he be I turned in all the papers for Bárcenas. " "After holding them captive for a few minutes between Guillermo Bárcenas, Rosalía's son and Sergio Ríos who 'coincidentally' was in the vicinity of the home and came to Rosalía's cries for help, they manage to reduce the false priest. According to Rosalía Iglesias a few minutes later a large police device is inside his house ", they settle.
Send the conclusions to Anti-Corruption
However, Unidos Podemos and the pro-independence groups conclude that "during Fernández Díaz's term as Minister of the Interior, the personnel, means and resources of the department and the State Security Forces and Bodies were used in an illegal, illegitimate and partisan manner. Political purposes".
For this reason, "beyond the political responsibilities deemed appropriate within the pertinent organizations and based on their own considerations, the Bureau of the Commission and, on behalf of the Congress of Deputies, its president, will forward these conclusions to the Anticorruption Prosecutor's Office, the National Court, the Supreme Court, the Court of Accounts and all the judicial bodies that are determined ". "Likewise, and for the organic and disciplinary measures that are deemed appropriate to be taken into consideration, this brief of conclusions will be transferred to the Minister of the Interior, the Secretary of Security and the Director General of the Police," these parties decide in their conclusions. .
