MADRID, May 10. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The spokesman for the Socialist Group in Congress, Héctor Gómez, denied this Tuesday that the dismissal of the director of the (CNI), Paz Esteban, could be interpreted as a “cession” to pro-independence formations that were spied on with the ‘Pegasus’ program to continue to provide parliamentary support to the coalition Executive.
“There is no type of transfer,” Gómez commented at a press conference in response to the PP, Vox and Ciudadanos who see Esteban’s dismissal as an attempt by President Pedro Sánchez to please his parliamentary partners.
In addition, he has insisted that the PSOE does not value the possibility of giving free rein to an investigative commission in Congress such as the one demanded not only by the parties that have been spied on by ‘Pegasus’ according to the platform ‘The Citizen Lab’ but also United We Can, the minority partner of the Executive.
It has guaranteed that the Government will continue to address this issue from “legality” and “transparency”, recalling that Sánchez himself is going to appear the week of May 25 to talk about this particular.
