The government ignores the ombudsman’s report and defends the police action on the Melilla fence.

The Melilla fence massacre in which dozens were killed last June has become a new problem for the government after the BBC released unpublished images suggesting Spain was responsible and the People’s Ombudsman questioned the legality of the police action. However, the executive authorities ignore the report prepared by the institution headed by Angel Gabilondo and insist that the state security forces and authorities acted in accordance with the law at the Melilla border with Morocco.

“Respect and confidence in the investigation and confidence that the state security forces and authorities act with criteria of proportionality and in accordance with the law,” explained the spokeswoman, Isabel Rodríguez, at a press conference of the Council of Ministers a few days after the transfer of Pedro Sánchez. His full support for Interior Minister Fernando Grande-Marlasque, who is cornered by coalition partners who are calling for a commission of inquiry.

Moncloa rules out a new parliamentary investigation apart from the one launched by the ombudsman and the prosecutor’s office, and points to the explanations that Marlasca will give this Tuesday in a closed-door committee on expenses. Nevertheless, he insists that he has been “transparent” in this matter. “It would be good to understand the difficult realities of managing our border,” Rodriguez said of the visit by a delegation from the House Interior Committee to the scene of the tragedy. “Confidence on behalf of the government to our state security forces and authorities who are operating in a very difficult scenario,” the minister added.

The three ministers who appeared this Tuesday took advantage of Isabel Diaz Ayuso, due to the state of health of Madrid. “The autonomous communities have funding that allows them to deal with the development of their powers,” began the head of the treasury, María Jesus Montero, who recalled that “on average” they will see a 24% increase in their resources next year. “A double-digit increase in non-financial costs is being considered compared to the previous year,” explained Montero, citing Madrid and Andalusia as examples. “Issues related to the coverage of health places can be for other reasons, but not financing,” he answered a question about strikes in the health sector that began in Madrid, Cantabria, Salamanca or Navarre.

The health minister, Carolina Darias, opened fire directly against the Ayuso government, showing a graph with data. “Madrid is the antithesis of what the rest of the societies are doing,” said Darias, who noted that family and community spaces have increased by 36% across the country, while in Madrid it has decreased by 25%. “Does anyone understand that being one of the most deficient Madrid not only does not follow in the footsteps of the entire health system, but also opposes it?” asked the minister, who also said that 37 places were left without a direct offer. in the region. “This is data. When there’s conflict, what you have to do is build bridges, not pour gasoline,” he added, before calling for “respect for health professionals.”

The speaker took a shot at Alberto Nunez Feijo. Asked about the words of the Madrid president, who accused Sanchez of being “in the prison of the opposition”, Rodríguez said that he tries to “not attend to what he is doing”. “This is very serious for the daily life of the people of Madrid, for their health,” he said in his wake before charges against Feijo: “In the opinion of the government, it is serious that someone who represents the main opposition party, he was already used to talking bad about us from Spain to Spain, but he still “He has taken one step, he not only speaks badly about Spain, but also calls Spanish democracy into question,” he said. Travel to Latin America. “Spain does not deserve a party or a main opposition party that does not believe that this country is a democracy,” he added.

In any case, the government believes that Feijo is being forced by the president of Madrid: “The alarming thing is that it is clearly because it simply seems that he is being dragged by Ms. Ayuso, who is taking him to the most extreme positions. Anti-democratic right.

The collapse of the justice renewal talks confirms the advantage Ayuso has over Feiyo and the government intends to use it as a trick. This was done by the speaker in response to the question whether the government intends to appoint relevant magistrates to the Constitutional Court and reminded that this situation was created due to the PP blockade. “The government is going to fulfill its constitutional obligation and we understand the situation left in the General Council of the Judiciary which led to the resignation of its president and we understand that they, like us, will fulfill their obligations.” Mandate with the appointment of magistrates”. Moncloa hopes the governing body of judges will implement the law in two months, although he has already warned he will appoint two magistrates to comply with it if the CGPJ does not step up.
