The president of the PP, Pablo Casado, has warned the Government that will ask the Prosecutor’s Office to investigate his management during the first wave of coronavirus if it does not thrive in Congress one commission of inquiry in this regard that the PP is going to promote shortly. Commission that will promote as a result of the revelation of the second vice president, Yolanda Diaz, that unsuccessfully alerted the Executive in March 2020 of the seriousness of the situation.
Casado has announced that the parliamentary spokesperson of the Popular Group, Cuca Gamarra, will shortly register in the Chamber the request for an investigation commission, but given the possible rejection of the parties of the left to investigate this question, he has warned:
“But, We will request that the Public Prosecutor’s Office open proceedings ex officio against public officials who have been able to hide information and delay the measures, which could cause the death and contagion of thousands of Spanish citizens ”, Casado told the media.
Married has recalled that “The vice president has revealed that the importance of these infections was known” at the end of February 2020 and the beginning of March “and yet the government hid them so as not to end those demonstrations planned for the March 8″, Women’s Day, has been added.
This Thursday, the PP has already requested the appearance in the Congress of Díaz and the Minister of the Presidency, Felix Bolaños, for this matter.
Specifically, in an interview on Radiocable, the vice president assured that on February 15 of last year she summoned her team from the Ministry of Labor to think about measures against the coronavirus, since it was already seen that the pandemic “was hitting Italy strongly” and that could also happen in Spain. In addition, he explained that on March 4 his Ministry presented a prevention guide against COVID-19 that at that time generated a “huge controversy” in the Government and some, in allusion to the CEOE, called him “alarmist.”
The leader of the PP has insisted that it is necessary to “clarify” these questions through a parliamentary commission of inquiry, given that the State Attorney General’s Office “has paralyzed all the complaints that have been presented by health workers, patient associations and relatives of the more than 120,000 deceased “. “Justice must be done“, has settled.
The PP criticizes that Díaz did not resign in March 2020
The “popular” leaders have continued to harshly criticize the Government after the revelation of Yolanda Díaz.
“Has been an acknowledgment by the government itself of lies and negligence (…) for this Government the political propaganda of 8M was more important that the prevention and management of the pandemic ”, the PP spokesman, José Luis Martínez Almeida, has asserted before the journalists.
“Now we know that Díaz privately warned of the consequences that it was going to have, on March 4, when the feminist demonstrations of March 8 were called. And the vice president decided not to resign in the face of the lie that the Government was trying to impose de Sánchez, which today has caused tens of thousands of deaths that are not even admitted by the Government of the nation ”, has reproached the deputy secretary of Territorial Policy of the party, Antonio González Terol.
And the vice president of Congress, Ana Pastor, has also criticized in RTVE: “Yesterday, when the vice president of the Government acknowledged that they treated him, that the Government knew about it but in spite of this they did not take measures, It seems very serious to us”.
