The leader of Cs asks the president of the Government to support the orange law against corruption with ‘measures that cost as little as prohibiting pardons to corrupt politicians or protecting den
“Corruption must always be fought, not only when it is in front of it, but also when it is next to it. What will you do if Iglesias is charged? Are you going to keep him? ”, The president of Ciudadanos (Cs), Inés Arrimadas, questioned the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez. After asking this question, the leader of the liberal formation has given the chief executive two options: "continue to target only corruption on one side or commit to taking measures" that Cs proposes. "Think well about the answer because the citizens are equally outraged by corruption on one side and the other," said Arrimadas.
The president of Cs, in the control session to the Government that has been held in Congress, has regretted that Sánchez does not support the orange law against corruption with “measures that cost as little as prohibiting pardons to corrupt politicians or protecting whistleblowers for corruption, which is an obligation that Europe requires of us in a directive ”. "We can approve simple measures that do not cost a single euro to the taxpayer and that truly prevent corruption from occurring wherever it comes from," said the leader of the liberal party.
"We have promoted many investigation commissions: against the three percent in Catalonia, against the irregular financing of the PP, against the ERE and training courses in Andalusia … and now we are also going to support, of course, that of the 'kitchen' o that of the irregular financing of Podemos that you block, ”said Arrimadas.
Regarding the renewal of the General Council of the Judicial Power (CGPJ), the president of Cs has insisted on the law that has already registered the formation “to depoliticize the appointment of the members of the governing body of the judges so that the judges are the ones who elect the judges ”. "You fight a lot in public, but then we know that the judges who end up investigating corruption are shared in private," said Arrimadas, referring to the agreements between PSOE and PP.
