The PSOE “respects” the Ombudsman after his report on Melilla but insists on waiting for the Prosecutor’s Office

The PSOE continues to close ranks with the Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska. This, despite the fact that the Ombudsman has once again harshly criticized the Government’s version of what happened last June at the Melilla fence. This was expressed this Monday by the Minister of Education, and spokesperson for the socialist leadership in Ferraz, Pillar Joy. The official message is to wait for the investigation by the Prosecutor’s Office, as was already highlighted last week.

“With everything that happened those weeks in the fences of Melilla we have made all the information available with transparency”, Alegría highlighted at a press conference. The socialist spokesperson has said that the party shows “the utmost respect” to the Ombudsman. And has insisted that the Government “is going to work with maximum transparency”. “We are going to wait and see what the prosecutionwhich is the one that has to be responsible in this case”, he stated.

Asked again if the PSOE supports Marlaska, Alegría referred to what was stated in recent days by the Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez. “The minister himself has given statements and all the answers. And his will to continue clarifying any issue has always been manifest”, he stressed.

PSOE leadership sources privately acknowledge the harshness of the report of the body chaired by Ángel Gabilondo. But that does not change the total and absolute support for the Minister of the Interior and the actions of the Civil Guard.

Gabilondo’s team disagrees with the explanations given by Interior about the police operation. He rejects that there was no coordination with the Moroccan forces, he believes that the use of stones and gases by the Spanish agents aggravated the situation and rules out that the hot returns were minimally legal.
