Puigdemont sympathizes with Sánchez and Robles but reproaches them for passivity

The announcement that the mobile phones of the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, and the Minister of Defense were spied on by the Pegasus program, have unleashed a cataract of reactions.

The most striking has been that of the former president of the Generalitat de Catalunya, Carles Puigdemont, who expressed his solidarity on Monday with Sánchez and Robles, as “victims” of espionage, although He has reproached them “for not having done anything” until complaints came from the independence movement.

“The violation of the privacy of Pedro Sánchez and Minister Robles is a very serious crime that threatens democracy. My solidarity with them, as victims, and my highest demand towards them, as those responsible for not having done anything until the outbreak of CatalanGate” Puigdemont has stated on Twitter.

According to the former president, “Moncloa has had to wait until there was an infection with Pegasus in the cell phones of the Prime Minister and the Minister of Defense to consider that it is an extremely serious matter and to investigate it.”

At the press conference, the Minister of the Presidency, Félix Bolaños has preferred not to speculate or make “guesses” about the origin or motives of the espionage suffered by the President of the Government and the Minister of Defense or if it is related to the independence process in Catalonia.

Alberto Nuñez Feijoo, president of the PP, has said that this, the puncture to Sánchez and Robles’ mobiles, is “the first explanation” offered by the Government on the Pegasus case. Then he has shown the “support” of the PP to the Government to reinforce the security of the State institutionsbut at the same time he has criticized that “the independentistas are in the Commission of official secrets”.

A little more critical has been the PP of Madrid. The spokesman for the Government of the Community of Madrid, the Minister of Health Enrique Ruiz-Escuderohas stated about the leak in The Ana Rosa Program: “The news seems extremely serious to me, that the phones of members of the Government of Spain can be spied on is serious. It really is everything that surrounds this Government, it gives a feeling of lack of control around you and above all, not only because of the internal image, at the international level we have a NATO summit and I don’t know if it is the best image at the security level”.

Pablo Iglesias: “The situation in Robles is unsustainable”

Pablo Iglesias, former leader of Podemos and former Vice President of the Government, has also referred to the matter. In Rac1, Iglesias has focused on the Minister of Defense, Margarita Robles, of whom he has said that her situation is “unsustainable.”

Another who has spoken has been the spokesman for En Comú Podem, Jaume Asens, also via Twitter.

The president of the Parliament, Laura Borràs, expressed her suspicions on Monday about the possibility that the Government of Pedro Sánchez is making a “maneuver” to go “from executioners to victims” of political espionage.

“Sánchez and Robles say they are spied on. Now it is a very serious issue. When it only affected the independence movement, the minister justified it. Is it evidence that you do not have to clean the sewers in case you can use them? Or a maneuver to go from executioners to victims? Bye CatalanGate? It doesn’t work,” Borrà said on Twitter.

The deputy of EH Bildu Oskar Matute has considered it necessary, after knowing the espionage to the Government, to clarify, “so that there is no hint of doubt”, that “This cannot be part of the sewers of the State, with an autonomous operation independent of the Executive that governs the Spanish State”.

This is how Matute spoke on the “online” radio station La Cafetera, where he said he wanted to be cautious about the espionage suffered by the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, and the Defense Minister, Margarita Robles.
