The GPP spokesman denounces that the Department of National Security alerted, at least 10 times before March 8, several members of the Government about the high risk of the pandemic
- Remember that President Sánchez, the four vice presidents and the Minister of Health received the alerts
- He reproaches Calvo for hiding from parliamentary control and not going to the full Senate
- He affirms that the Joint Investigative Commission Congress-Senate on the pandemic presented by the socialists is "incomplete"
The spokesman for the Popular Parliamentary Group, Javier Maroto, has described as "a scandal of the first magnitude" that the Government of Sánchez remained "without doing anything, despite the fact that the Department of National Security alerted, at least 10 times before March 8 , to several members of the Government about the high risk that the coronavirus pandemic had for the Spanish ”. “We have definitive evidence that the Department of National Security alerted several members of the Government about the high risk that the coronavirus pandemic had for the Spanish. Meanwhile, the Government remained absent from decisions and did nothing, "the PP spokesman denounced. Maroto has pointed out that "this matter is a first division scandal and any country with a decent government would have raised the resignation of half of its members," while highlighting that President Sánchez, the four vice presidents and the Minister of Health received the alerts from National Security.
ABSENCE OF CARMEN CALVO
In addition, regarding the absence of the first vice president of the Government, Carmen Calvo, from the control session that is held this afternoon in the Upper House, Maroto has reproached her for hiding from parliamentary control. "I am not surprised that Mrs. Calvo has found some matter to hide and not come to the Plenary in view of the published information," he asserted. Thus, the popular spokesman has explained that his Group has requested to know "the reason for his absence, since the only thing that appears on his public agenda today is a meeting at twelve in the morning." In relation to the Congress-Senate Joint Investigation Commission on the pandemic presented by the socialists, the PP spokesman has stressed that it is "incomplete" because they do not want an investigation into what happened before 8-M and they intend to hide evidence. "If the Government, in addition to making proposals for the future, is not capable of telling the Spanish the truth about what happened, it would be an incomplete Commission," he pointed out. For this reason, it has announced that the Popular Group "is going to amend by addition "This Commission:" Of course we must seek measures for the future, but it is a sine qua non condition to clarify what happened before March 8, because it was the essential key to the brutal number of infections in our country.
