Few times a judicial resolution combines accusations and defenses, having diametrically opposed interests. The order in which the judge of the National Court Manuel García-Castellón He concluded the instruction of the Kitchen case, related to the espionage to which the ex-treasurer of the PP Luis Bárcenas was subjected to intervene the compromising information for the party that he guarded, he has the dubious honor of having achieved it. In one way or another, all of them advocate in their appeals before the Criminal Chamber of the National Court, to which this newspaper has had access, that the investigation be extended to the one who clearly presents himself as the main beneficiary of the illegal para-police device : the Popular Party.

The magistrate placed the “vertex” of the Kitchen in the then Minister of the Interior, Jorge Fernández Díaz, and proposed to try him along with 10 other people, such as his number two, who was his Secretary of State for Security, Francisco Martinez. Instead he raised the accusation that weighed on the former secretary general of the PP Maria Dolores de Cospedal and her husband, the businessman Ignacio López del Hierro, extreme that they ask that it be revoked by all the accusations, that they see sufficient indications against them to put them on the bench.

Anti-corruption, which asks that the person who was director general of the Police be charged Ignacio Cosidó and the telephones that the main defendant in the case, José Manuel Villarejo, said to have used to inform the former president of the Government Mariano Rajoy, affirms in his appeal that the judge “artificially wants to delimit” the case “to the scope of the ministry” as if “a cordon or a non-existent red line had been established” to leave the PP and its leaders on the sidelines.

The accusation that Podemos exercises goes further and in its appeal, which it calls “extravagant “,” irrational “and” surprising “the closure of the investigation when there are still procedures to be carried out, it goes back to “the GAL” to affirm that “it might seem that the investigating judge wants to confine this type of illegal actions to the Interior, in which the police apparatus is used to carry out actions with a clear component politics, which does not seem admissible in an already more established rule of law such as ours and on a cause in which evidence and indications are carried out that directly point to other political leaders, in this case more linked to the apparatus of the PP “.

The PSOE maintains that “justice cannot investigate everything, but between that, and stingily stick to the years 2013 to 2015 and only to the activity deployed from the Interior, there is a world. “He adds that this instruction” is the mirror of how the administration of justice works in the eyes of the citizens when confronting the powerful, “who are left out.

For their part, the defenses also expand on this point, although they have been accused and not others. Fernández Díaz, for example, points out that it was not he who benefited from the theft of documents from Bárcenas.
