Justice gives Judge Salvador Alba ten days to enter prison

The Superior Court of Justice of the Canary Islands (TSJC) decreed this Wednesday the execution of the sentence that in September 2019 sentenced Judge Salvador Alba Mesa to six and a half years in prison and 18 years of disqualification, among other penalties, for conspiring against the magistrate Victoria Rosell, current delegate of the Government against Gender Violence. The decision comes after the Supreme Court ratified that sentence in all its extremes on November 25.

As a first measure to execute this sentence, the Civil and Criminal Chamber has decided to require the convicted person to voluntarily enter prison within a period of ten days, “under the warning of remembering his search and capture” in case of disobedience. He also urges him to deposit the amount of 12,150 euros in a bank account of the TSJC, corresponding to the fine to which he has also been sentenced, and that his insurance company, Allianz, enter another 85,000 of bail that was decreed in the criminal proceedings , so that 60,000 of that amount are paid to Judge Victoria Rosell as compensation, as established in the judgment of that court ratified 50 days ago by the Supreme Court.

In the same way, the return of the bonds of 3,000 euros deposited by Podemos and Carlos Sosa to exercise popular action in the cause that now ends is decreed in the same order.

Despite being condemned firmly and that the sentence contains a sentence of 18 years of disqualification as a judge with the loss of the attached honors, Salvador Alba is still officially a judge to this day. The General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) plans to agree this Thursday to open a file for his expulsion, giving the interested party a hearing procedure and listening to the Prosecutor’s Office. In reality, Alba’s expulsion proceedings had been suspended when the opening of oral proceedings was decreed in 2018 and it was also decided to suspend him from his functions as judge. However, during all the time that has elapsed since then, he has been receiving a basic salary of around 1,800 euros net per month, in accordance with the regulations of the judicial career. When the CGPJ decides on their expulsion – if it decides – they must return all that money to the Ministry of Justice, which is the one that pays the payroll of judges, magistrates and lawyers of the Administration of Justice.
