The PSOE mocked the spokesperson of the PP Congress, Miguel Tellado because he described as a “smokescreen” the reports published by elDiario.es, which prove not only the existence of the so-called Operation Catalunya but that the government of Mariano Rajoy was ordered to have a parapolice unit to produce evidence against Catalan politicians. “This is the PP’s Watergate,” he declared.
Spanish courts refused to investigate Operation Catalunya and stopped Andorra’s trial
This was shown by the spokesperson of the PSOE in Congress, Patxi López, in statements to the media in the corridors of the Senate, where this Thursday is the plenary session for the works of the Lower House. He considered Tellado’s words “bordering on the ignorant” and “absolutely irresponsible.”
This Thursday, Tellado stated that the PSOE resorted to ‘Operation Catalonia’ to cover the agreements it reached with the pro-independence parties to continue Pedro Sánchez as president of the government. a “smokescreen” of the “PSOE media network.”
López responded by discrediting these words: “We know the use and abuse of the State Security Forces and Bodies to attack the enemy, to obstruct justice, to hide one’s shame, and to call it their smokescreen,” he complained.
In his opinion, this is not a smokescreen but “the PP’s Watergate, a direct attack on the democratic system itself,” as he emphasized, because it means using the state illegally for its benefit, “damaging the separation of powers,” and trying to “condition” judicial decisions from the executive.
In addition, he appealed directly to the president of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, saying that “he cannot be silent” on this matter. “One day you have to stop attacking Pedro Sánchez and tell us what a popular party thinks without limits,” he launched.
