The most judicial case on television in recent times is again facing a completely unexpected obstacle in the middle of the outcome. Popularly known as ‘Operation Deluxe’, this process is paralyzed by the registration of a appeal filed by the former councilor of Ciudadanos (Cs). Carmen López Santana, who was part of Mediaset Universe before, is the one who took the lead in making a move about the possibility of being one of the victims of the leak without permission of sensitive information from the databases of the National Police.
From the city of Chicago (United States), the former leader of the orange party wants to accept his personalization and self-defense, while developing The Objective. In this case, the native of Alicante considers that he can be involved in this scheme where alleged crimes of disclosure of secrets and briberyalthough this last assumption has been dropped before after showing the non-existence of economic compensation in exchange for information.
the Madid Provincial Court is still studying the possibility of accepting this appeal, which was filed by Tuesday July 11. Its registration caused a domino effect that resulted in the paralysis of the process as planned: the judge in charge, Marcelino Sexmero, asked to prolong the investigation process. In this way, the period mentioned today is likely to be extended until the month of December despite the fact that the investigations have been exhausted.
Carmen López never appeared as an alleged victim
‘Operation Moon’, the official name of this process, was forced to extend the investigation process due to appeals filed by some of the alleged victims; However, Carmen López is not really part of this list. However, he decided to participate in this request to study if any kind of sensitive information about him was created, also saying “legal incapacity”. It should be noted that there was a time around 2016 where his name was positioned as a member of the Mediaset Universe.
On January 7 of the previous year, the fourth edition of ‘Big Brother VIP’ It started with Telecinco after a lot of data was collected in the previous batch of programs. Carmen López was one of the strongest names at the time judging by her past in the political field; in fact, it was nicknamed by Jordi González “the reprehensible councilor of Ciudadanos” during the opening day. His visit to the house of Guadalix de la Sierra was one of the most controversial despite its brevity.
It should be noted that it is expelled from the party in 2015 after being elected as councilor of Castillejo de la Cuesta (Seville). The key was when he asked the City Council to reimburse him for the expenses incurred from the flights to attend the plenary sessions every week from Chicago.
Among other things, he was affected by a serious accusation by his colleagues: some suggested that he he drank the gin which is kept in the refrigerator after a party. The one who presented the first edition of ‘Operación Triunfo’ and the one known as ‘Little Nicolás’ blamed him without ceremony. He also copied messages on social networks before the crying which he experienced when he saw a broom and a dustpan.
After a few days, he decided to leave the competition for a very important reason: He admitted that he suffered from “harassment from Carlos Lozano”. The key appears in the weekly test at that time: López felt “angry” because the presenter allegedly encouraged him to put his hands “in the shape of a pussy.” “He insisted to do it, I was like nothing because I don’t know how to stop that person,” he alleged during the regular broadcast of reality show from Mediaset España and Zeppelin TV.
76% fewer affected people in ‘Operation Deluxe’
In the last part of the so-called ‘Operation Deluxe’, the Prosecutor’s Office decreased by more than 76% of number of celebrities allegedly affected by the leaks. In this way, the relevant body reduced the number of recognizable faces that could be part of this scheme from 138 to 17. It is only possible to collect “evidence or clues” in these cases, which includes Omar Montes , Aramís Fuster, Ángel Garó, Asraf Beno, Carmen Gahora or the singer Chiquetete, among others.

About other faces, supposedly affected people still showing up as a private accusation, “the most that the police reports have proven in summary is WhatsApp conversations”. It should be noted that the agent whose initials are “AJFH” maintains a friendly relationship with Gustavo González, a collaborator of ‘Sálvame’. However, there is no record of any kind of participation in the part of the production that company or to manage the night space that produced La Fábrica de la Tele with Mediaset España before its end.
