The Madrid Court reopens the investigation into the alleged ‘box B’ of Podemos

The Madrid Court has reopened the investigation into the alleged ‘box B’ of Podemos, considering that there are indications of the commission of a crime in the administration of the party’s so-called ‘solidarity fund’, a kind of fund to which its leaders make donations of their salaries to allocate them to social projects. Specifically, the transfer of 30,000 euros from that box to the 404 Popular Communication Association is under suspicion.

The judges of section 30 hold that it is “reasonable to think” that there is a “disguised subjective link” between that association and Podemos that could have been used to “obviate” the limitations of the party financing law and operate “outside the inspection activity of the Court of Accounts ”. All this, says the order to which elDiario.es has had access, “for the benefit of some, to the detriment of the rest of the members of Podemos and of the social purposes to which the funds should be dedicated.”

The Madrid Court has admitted two appeals from Vox and Prolege – people as a popular accusation – against the order of October 20, 2020, by which this line of investigation was provisionally dismissed within the ‘Neurona case’. Then, the instructor Juan José Escalonilla concluded that there was no unfair administration in the so-called ‘solidarity fund’ and estimated that “no indication exists” that this association —registered in the National Registry of Associations— does not develop the activity for which it was constituted, nor that said amounts received from Podemos, which may come from the Solidarity Fund, are not so except to carry out said activity.
