The TS magistrate wants to put the PP deputy on the bench, who is blamed for evidence of crime for contracts signed when he was mayor of Trujillo


Congress plans to set this Thursday deadlines for the processing of the petition requested by the Supreme Court to investigate the PP deputy Alberto Casero, who is blamed for evidence of crime for contracts signed when he was mayor of Trujillo. The decisions will be taken in the Commission of the Statute of the Deputy chaired by the socialist Adriana Lastra.

The magistrate of the Supreme Court Andrés Palomo, in charge of the investigation, wants the request to proceed criminally against the PP deputy when he sees rational indications of alleged crimes of prevarication and embezzlement, for certain agreements and service contracts that he made as mayor.

Last Tuesday, the Table of the Congress admitted the petition and sent it to the Commission of the Statute of the Deputy, which has a maximum of 30 working days to submit a proposal to the Plenary of the Chamber.

The PP will take action against Casero if an oral trial is opened and the information file is kept open

The deputy from Extremadura, a close collaborator of the former secretary general of the PP Teodoro García Egea, who grabbed the front pages for his mistake that allowed the labor reform to be approved, was precisely the representative of the PP in this commission until he was relieved of the changes introduced in the Popular Group after the arrival of Alberto Núñez Feijóo in Genoa. Now the spokesperson is in the hands of Ángel Luis González.

At its meeting this Thursday, as always behind closed doors, it is intended to set dates for the procedure and to give an audience to Deputy Casero, a procedure that can be carried out in writing within the period set by the Commission itself or orally before it.

Once it completes its task, the commission will present its conclusion to the plenary session of the Chamber, which is the one that has the last word. In previous petitions, the Commission for the Statute of the Deputy has resolved this procedure in about two weeks.

Behind closed doors

That yes, the debate and voting of the supplications in the plenary session of the Congress is not public either, but takes place with the hemicycle behind closed doors and without transparency. The deputies are also not obliged to follow voting instructions since their vote is secret. Only the result is disclosed.

Within eight days, counted from the agreement of the plenary session of the Chamber on the granting or denial of the requested authorization, Batet will transfer it to the judicial authority, advising it of the obligation to communicate to the Chamber the orders and sentences that are issued and personally affect the deputy.

The request shall be deemed denied if the Chamber has not ruled within sixty calendar days, computed during the session period, from the day following receipt of the request.
