The secretary of the Socialist Group in the Courts and spokesperson for the PSOE in the Investigation Commission of the wind farms, the Arroyo building and the Portillo polygon, Patricia Gómez, said today after learning that the Anticorruption Prosecutor’s Office has requested the opening of an oral trial, that his party was right “when six years ago it denounced the largest corruption scheme that has occurred in this Community.”
“Everything indicates that when talking about corruption it always ends up in the same place, in the PP of Castilla y León. And Mañueco was always there”, declared today the socialist parliamentarian Patricia Gómez after hearing the indictment of the Anticorruption Prosecutor’s Office that raises the set of penalties requested for those indicted for the so-called ‘wind plot’ to 138 years in prison .
“The PSOE was right when six years ago it denounced the largest corruption plot that has occurred in this Community. We were not wrong in pointing to the PP of Castilla y León,” said the socialist representative, who considers “necessary to reflect on the enormous amount of money that has had to be diverted from the public coffers, money from the Castilians and Leonese, to benefit only a few “.
“If we add the total fines, they add up to 848 million euros. Let’s make this reflection, how much money has had to be diverted from the public coffers for the fine to be of such magnitude,” he lamented.
Likewise, the socialist representative has stressed that the defendants on this occasion are again the same as those of the corruption plot of Perla Negra and Portillo, “those who were then high positions of the Ministry of Economy led by Tomás Villanueva”. whose death, Gómez recalls, occurred without any of the courts, neither that of the wind plot now, nor that of the Black Pearl then, having said that he was innocent or that he had nothing to do with this matter, so , only due to his death and only to that, he has been left without any type of criminal responsibility.
Along these lines, Gómez reiterates that the PSCyL did the right thing when it denounced those events and that “reality denies the PP spokesman in the Cortes, Raúl de la Hoz, who said that they were inventions of the socialists and after highlighting that who today is Carlos Fernández Carriedo, in charge of the coffers of this CCAA, at that time was Minister of the Environment and that Mañueco was always there.
During the entire period in which this plot unfolded, Mañueco was an advisor to the Presidency, of Justice and, also, president of the National Committee of Rights and Guarantees, Gómez recalls.
“When a party has Sarkozy as a reference, it is normal that Mañueco has been the president of the National Committee of Rights and Guarantees of the PP, of a corrupt PP, as indicated by the Supreme Court , who has said that he benefited from Box B of the PP “, has sentenced the socialist.
