The Civil and Criminal Chamber of the Superior Court of Justice of the Valencian Community (TSJCV), who had agreed to investigate the alleged cover-up of sexual abuse by the ex-husband of the former Vice President and former Minister of Equality Monica Oltra to a minor under guardianship, has suspended the declaration of the exporter of the Generalitat, scheduled for July 6, and has asked the Valencian Courts to certify her resignation from her status as regional deputy.

Subsequently, five more people were charged: a general director, a deputy general director, a territorial secretary, a service manager and a technician. A total of 13 investigated.
The TSJCV, after studying the case that was forwarded to it by the ordinary court, declared itself competent to instruct him upon appreciating “a series of plural clues» that «lead to suspect the possible existence of a concert» between Oltra and various officials to «protect her then-partner or protect the political career of the outlaw».
