MADRID, May 6. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The spokesman for Ciudadanos and deputy secretary general, Edmundo Bal, announced this Friday that they are going to file a complaint with the Public Prosecutor’s Office to investigate the revelations of deputies after the appearance of the director of the National Intelligence Center (CNI), Paz Esteban, in the Official Secrets Commission that was held in Congress. He has also conveyed that they are going to ask the Congressional Bureau to sanction the ERC spokesman, Gabriel Rufián, for his statements by depriving him of some of the rights he has as a deputy.
This has been transferred in an interview on Antena 3, collected by Europa Press, when asked about whether they are going to ask the ERC parliamentary spokesman in the Lower House for making the content of the Reserved Expenses Commission public.
“I think they are frivolizing a bit in this regard. They are saying that they are talking about things that had already been talked about in the media or that things have been said that everyone has the right to know,” said the leader of the ‘orange’ formation.
Bal explained that he is reviewing the complaint that they are going to present to the Prosecutor’s Office in which they transfer the facts, they indicate “what is the legislation that establishes the secret nature of this information and adds Rufián’s statements”, he slipped, while pointed out that they will also inform “other publications”.
Likewise, Bal has defended the actions of the Defense Minister, Margarita Robles, Paz Esteban and the CNI agents who “cannot go out to defend themselves” and “are authentic heroes who fight for national security”. In addition, she has pointed out that the first error that is “inciding is that the CNI investigates crimes.”
“It is not like that, the CNI does not investigate crimes, the CNI is responsible for obtaining information to maintain national security,” he added. Thus, Bal has explained that the national security objectives are found in a secret document that is presented to the magistrate of the Supreme Court appointed for five years.
