SUBJECT OF THE DAY
Shielding. The Spanish congress has been forced to close because Vox leader Javier Ortega Smith has become infected with the coronavirus. The far right has, temporarily, succeeded in one of its goals, to outplay the chamber that represents the popular will of the Spaniards. The metaphor is unavoidable: Since no health cordon was made against the far right, Vox is now threatening to infect all Spanish parties. But Vox is not the only virus that degrades Spanish democracy; There is another, the monarchy, which takes advantage of legal shielding that prevents it from being controlled by democratic and judicial mechanisms. The monarchy cannot be investigated by Spanish courts even if there is suspicion or evidence of a crime. This is stated in article 56 of the Spanish constitution, which guarantees the 'inviolability' of the king and states that he is not subject to any liability.
Under this protective shield, impunity is possible and this has been shown by the case of the fortune hidden in Switzerland by King Emeritus Juan Carlos I, who came from commissions for the construction of the TGV in Mecca and kindly donated by the theocracy. Saudi A fortune valued at one hundred million euros that has largely been used to buy the silence of her lovers. It seems that the CNI has also been involved in this 'silence', according to some reports, which implies the Spanish state apparatus in the 'protection of the monarch'. If so, there are also political responsibilities.
For all of this, a number of parties had requested a congressional inquiry commission. The chamber table has rejected it with the votes of the PSOE, the PP and the Vox. A curious and disturbing tripartite, especially with regard to the government of Pedro Sánchez, which once again demonstrates that the interest of the state goes beyond any democratic ideology or scruple. Unfortunately, the vote came as no surprise. The monarchy is, since the transition, the black hole of Spanish democracy. It served to whitewash the transition from Francoism to democracy without rupture, then closed the 23-F scandal, and has finally been the institutional spearhead against the independence process and the guarantee of repression against its leaders to save. the unity of Spain. The judicial armor has been used to cover all kinds of sentimental and financial scandals, but it could not prevent any such from happening, such as in the Nóos case, which was liquidated by sacrificing Iñaki Urdangarin as a scapegoat and salvaging with forceps. infanta Cristina. The constitutional shielding allows opaque operations such as that of Switzerland, which has been widely circulated by the European press, while the Spanish has silenced it. However, the Swiss prosecution is investigating it.
The coronavirus crisis has gone well in covering the scandal, but voting is another crack in the government between the PSOE and Podem, which experiences one crisis a week, as seen with the sex freedom law. Pablo Iglesias's people will not break the government on this issue, because they already applauded Felipe VI at the constituent session of the congress, and with the request of the research commission, which they already knew would not prosper, they cleared themselves of that shameful scene. of 'republican monarchism' which Iglesias theorized. The vote also buries the dream of some pro-independence parties to have a common front with the Spanish left to overthrow the monarchy. The majority Spanish left is monarchic of the transition since and is part of the 78 regime exactly as the right. But at least Independentism will already be able to calmly reject the argument that it cannot be voted against this progressive government because it is to play Vox. The first that has no problem voting with the far right to save the monarchy is the PSOE. The stupid argument was used to coerce the vote of pro-independence parties at the Sanchez investiture, and some will have the bar to use it again when the state budget is voted on. With the permission of the coronavirus.
The High Court rejects Cotino's attempt to blame the Vatican. The defense of Juan Cotino has received a significant setback in court for his visit Benedict XVI in Valencia in 2006.
