In October 1981, the magistrates of the newly created Constitutional Court accepted a complaint signed by Antonio Tejero, who had tried to seize Congress at gunpoint a few months earlier. In its letter, the Civil Guard called for the magistrate to be removed because he described the coup attempt as a “colossal attack on the constitution” and it represented “clear hostility” towards him. DayIn its first year, the Constitutional Court stated that challenges and requests to remove magistrates should be based on “concrete facts” and not simple accusations. After more than three decades, the probate court still does not have its own law governing restraint, and the success of a challenge depends largely on the decision of the aggrieved person.
