The new spokeswoman of the PSOE, Esther Peña, asked to “proceed to the end” of the investigations about the call ‘Operation Catalonia’ and that responsibilities are “clear.” However, he did not clarify if his party would request the appearance of the former president of the government, Mariano Rajoy, in the investigative commission of Congress.
In the TVE interview, Peña was asked about the latest journalistic investigation, which suggests that Rajoy’s Executive allegedly used the police to investigate outside the law of pro-independence parties and organize campaigns against ‘process’ Precisely this Monday, the Prosecutor’s Office of Catalonia agreed to investigate the alleged police investigations directed against the former main prosecutor of this community, Martín Rodríguez Sol, based on information published about so-called Operation Catalonia’.
“It seems to be true The PP is asking one of the worst questions a democracy can ask: who uses the public resources of each to encourage enemies, produce false evidence, and create a completely suffocating situation,” he criticized.
“If those responsible for the PP at that time need to show up, let them do it.”
He assured that, once the parliamentary commission is established on the matter, the PSOE wants to “go to the end” and “debug responsibilities.” “And if those responsible for the PP at the time need to reflect public opinion, we will do it.”
To the open question of whether the Socialists would request Rajoy’s appearance, he limited himself to answering: “It’s up to us to make sure that whoever goes there gives explanations.”
However, Peña wants to send a message of “trust” to the citizens. “Since the PSOE is in charge, there has never been a situation of this bad character, nor have the resources of the state been used for partisan purposes.”
Peña, deputy for Burgos, was appointed the new socialist spokesperson this Sunday by the Federal Committee of the party, which approved the changes in the leadership of the Socialist Party.
