The PP requested the disapproval of the Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, in the Congress and the Senate. However, the insults that he accumulated in more than 2,000 days at the head of the ministry made Alberto Núñez Feijóo demand his resignation or dismissal so that he will not sit, even this Tuesday, in the Council of Ministers. After two civil guards were killed by a drug boat piloted by people with criminal records, the leader of the PP assured: “He must resign, because Sánchez, who dedicated the night to mourning the going to a film festival, there is no legit. “to stop him.”
The famous assured that they will not allow to forget what happened in Barbate and remember that there are many mistakes accumulated in Grande-Marlaska at the head of the Ministry of the Interior, so, in addition, they remember , he has already failed in a occasion, in particular, in 2023, because of his “lies” in the management of the tragedy in Melilla in June 2022, which left about twenty immigrants dead.
The PP does not plan to give up and maintain its mark on the Minister of the Interior because, they claim, he gathered many “very dark issues.”
Among them, remember the fact of the authorization of the Generalitat in 2020 to discriminate against police officers and civil guards in relation to the Mossos d’Esquadra during the pandemic vaccination process.
Also, at the request of EH Bildu, it allowed the transport of ETA prisoners to Basque prisons to be completed, the withdrawal of powers from the Civil Guard of Navarra – the Traffic Guard – and the Government gave Bildu and ERC entry into the commission of official secrets as a counterpart to the negotiations or the “inaction” in front of the tributes of the members of ETA and the refusal to prohibit them by law, as demanded by the popular, they recalled.
In addition, the victims of terrorism have not yet given their explanations regarding the alleged contacts between the Interior and the entourage of ETA to benefit the detainees.
Another front opened by Grande-Marlaska is the migration crisis that has been going on for months in the Canary Islands, something that the opposition has demanded “decisive” action.
From the PP they remember that the Minister of the Interior always has in his resume that ordered the dismissal of Colonel Diego Pérez de los Cobos who must be returned to his position as head of the Madrid Command, after the Supreme Court ordered him. to do so.
It added another blow to him by the Justice after showing that the repatriation of the minors in Ceuta was “absurd” even though Grande-Marlaska assured that they had done to preserve the interests of the minors – and many of them They were tricked in Morocco into believing that they were going to Spain to see Cristiano Ronaldo while their parents were looking for them.
Also, in 2019 he offered a “purge” of the Civil Guard of Catalonia as payment to the ERC for the investiture. The Interior wants commanders who are not in public or in the operation to get a violent position against the process, commanders who “do not bother much” among the members of the legislature of the Government, and make these dismissals.
In the middle of the election campaign in Madrid in 2021, he hid the fact that two “escorts” of Podemos led the protests against Vox in Vallecas and were arrested or that they used an alleged attack on homophobic against the opposition turned out to be false. Even the former Minister of the Interior, José Luis Corcuera, then criticized Marlaska for inciting hatred with false homophobic aggression.
Another of the open fronts is the recent chaos that took place at the airport of Madrid-Barajas and which has been criticized by the police unions on repeated occasions for the collapse and the deterioration of health that exists in the rooms to seek asylum where they are “full” on average daily. based on 150 people, most of them from African countries, especially from Morocco, or the escape of 26 immigrants from the waiting area for asylum seekers. Added to this is also the transfer of immigration jurisdiction to the Junts without specifying what it consists of and which is aimed at emptying the Civil Guard and Police of Catalonia of their functions.
Marlaska disbanded the elite anti-drug trafficking unit, OCON Sur, in 2022, despite warnings from the Civil Guard. This unit is composed of 150 seconded agents, who are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to fight this scourge. Then, the minister said it was a “restructuring” even though it was a dissolution. The demands for a place of special singularity, more resources and more troops have not been heard in all these years and now the sum of all the mistakes that the two civil guards have to deal with fight for their lives because of the lack of resources.
