The messages in the summary of the Tandem case demonstrate how the former head of the UCAO, Enrique García Castaño, confessed to the former Secretary of State for Security, Francisco Martínez, that he had received orders so that, “clandestinely reassemble the Catalan issue “, in veiled reference to the open investigations against the independence leaders in Catalonia. These are some whatsapps that were exchanged with Martínez in April 2018, seven months before the National Court began to investigate the Villarejo case on spying on Luis Bárcenas by the patriotic police.
In these communications, which are included in a police report to which he has had access Information, ‘El Gordo’ showed his interlocutor his anger after he was dismissed as head of the General Information Commission when he was involved in the business of Commissioner José Manuel Villarejo. He also confessed that he had met María Dolores de Cospedal and Ignacio López del Hierro after his change of destination. “I met La Cospe and her husband. They told me that the issue should have been fixed already, that they would talk to me, “El Gordo transferred to Jorge Fernández Díaz’s former number two when they were still in good tune. He even asked him about the repercussions that would have if he made public the material allegedly stolen from Bárcenas in a illegal operating.
“If I take out Bárcenas’ pendrive, what happens?”the police command asked Martínez, who did not respond. The police report includes the messages exchanged by the protagonists of this operation, which Villarejo baptized as Kitchen, and in which it is revealed how they were in continuous contact with the progress of the criminal investigation of this piece in the National Court. These are communications that Martínez kept on his mobile phone, which was seized by the Judicial Police after heto entry and registration at your home on March 13. The agents dumped the content of all these communications on a 32 GB pendrive, which date back to 2015 and which affect, among others, the former DAO of the Police, Eugenio Pino, journalists and his collaborators from the Ministry of the Interior.
“It’s all a trifle”
The first whatsapps in relation to the operation that was financed with reserved State funds date from 2015. At that time, Martínez denied the veracity of the information about the alleged theft of key documentary for the PP. “It’s all a trifle used as a weapon of war. Ni robo, ni rabo, ni Kitchen ni pollas“, then said the Secretary of State before the messages of journalists, to whom he also denied that Rosalía Iglesias, wife of the ex-treasurer of the PP, had information that could affect the party.” a bag of paper by hand written by Rosalía. What a ‘document’ … “, he said. However, in parallel, in conversations with García Castaño he asked him about the veracity of the document that Iglesias treasured as well as about the party positions that appeared in the famous manuscripts of the former manager of the Popular Party.
“Who do you mention in those notes?”; he asked, to which García Castaño said: “Everyone. Rajoy, Cospedal, Arenas … Bárcenas himself told them that he did not want trouble, “he replied and added:” The woman says that she has messages from her husband with the Minister of the Interior“, in reference to Jorge Fernández Díaz. Apparently, the environment of the former party treasurer asked the former leadership that the Judicial Police deny that he was ‘Luis the bastard’. However, this good relationship with the former head of the UCAO An expert in anti-terrorism matters went wrong after he was implicated in this operation, within the framework of his collaboration with the Justice. Before this, Martínez first showed his nervousness because the progress of the cause could affect him, and then his anger with the popular formation .
“Talk to Pablo (Married)”
“Cosidó has made me a great bitch” or “I have put myself in the eye of the hurricane”, are some of the messages he exchanged in which, in addition, he pointed out that a lifeline to avoid ending up being charged in this case would be to go on the party’s electoral lists. “I think they leave me lying (…), If I don’t go on lists they fuck me“, he snapped to what his interlocutor replied:” Speak with Pablo directly and without interference, “in reference to the leader of the Popular Party. In view of the fact that the police officers pointed to Interior addresses in their statements in court, Martínez tried request the support of senior members of the formation such as the current secretary general, Teodoro García Egea, to whom he told in a whatsapp without reply, that marked as “corrupt” for his own he had done “irreparable damage.”
Martínez reproached him that he had gotten into this “mess” out of loyalty to the party and his superior, while in another whatsapp to the former president of the Government, Mariano Rajoy, he explained that he had gone from being someone valuable for training to a “stinky”. “I think it’s not fair and i don’t deserve it (…). No one has called me and I only ask that the Party help me at this time, with whatever formula“Reads the message sent to Rajoy in March 2019 that did not receive an answer either. In the time that elapsed until his indictment, in January 2020, Martínez also tried to take advantage of his police contacts to speak with the magistrate in charge of the Tandem case, Manuel García Castellón.
“The lady who raised the leader”
“How about Manolo?“He asked Police Inspector Pedro Agudo.” You know him well, don’t you? “”Could you talk to him at one point?“He kept asking what the agent replied that he worked with him for five years and that he is a very good friend.” Damn, you have to give us a hand because prosecutors are real taliban and I think he is not even looking at the issue, “he snapped. The former secretary of state, who has always insisted that the operation on Bárcenas did not have any overtones of illegality, was also interested in the content of the statements made by other police officers in quality of witnesses when the case was still under summary secrecy. The same thing happened when he asked Agudo for the statement of Enrique Baron, former general director of the Interior in the Community of Madrid.
In this regard, he slipped the direction in which the testimony of the police command could run. “Well (I would like) discreetly know what to say... Ideally, it should say that everything was correct on the subject of reserved funds (which is true) “, said Martínez. Likewise, many messages were also sent with the former Deputy Director of the Police, Eugenio Pino, under the Government from Mariano Rajoy or with the former Head of Interior communication. “From my point of view, the culprit of everything that is happening is the lady who raised the leader. I think he should keep it in mind and help the leader, “said the journalist, referring, according to the police report, to María Dolores de Cospedal.” He is absolutely in profile. You know she has selective amnesia“, sentenced the former Secretary of State.
