The president of the PPdeG, Alfonso Rueda, and that of the Diputación de Ourense, José Manuel Baltar, are going to attend two electoral acts together this Tuesday after the controversy over the second fine to the provincial baron for speeding on the same day. It is rare for the parties to specify in the calls for campaign activities that the editors of the media are not called, but only those who take photographs and take videos, but this is what happens with today’s rallies. This is the way to prevent journalists from asking questions in the midst of the scandal over the excesses behind the wheel of the Baltar, which is facing a trial to determine if it committed a crime against road safety for going 215 kilometers per hour on a highway, in addition of a ticket for driving at 173 that same day, less than an hour before.
Baltar was hunted at 173 kilometers per hour the same day that the Civil Guard stopped him for going 215
Information about this prior infringement, advanced by Cadena SER, has a consequence that goes beyond the fine itself: it means that this vehicle took 54 minutes to cover the 143 kilometers that separate the first point at which it was detected at a speed higher than the permitted speed (in Allariz, Ourense, when it was going at 173 kilometers per hour at 5:44 p.m.) and the place where the Civil Guard stopped him for driving at 215, in Asturianos (Zamora) at 6:38 p.m. This implies that, on average, he had to drive at almost 160 kilometers per hour and questions the justification that Baltar gave when he apologized for the first known speeding. Then he said that it had been an “oversight” in a “long line without references.”
With these data published, the president of the Xunta and the PPdeG, Alfonso Rueda, avoided speaking on Monday. He limited himself to pointing out that he did not know the details and assuring that he would speak with Baltar. However, the events called this Tuesday in which the press could obtain information about that conversation directly from those involved are closed to questions. The first of these is a meeting shortly after noon with the candidate for mayor of Xinzo de Limia, Antonio Fernández, in a public park. At 2:00 p.m. Rueda and Baltar will be together again, in this case at a meal with the candidate in Toén. In two acts that are organized to promote closeness with the candidates, the PP indicates that only the graphic media are called upon to cover them.
The meeting that Rueda plans to attend late in the afternoon, in A Coruña, is open to the media. As for his agenda as president of the Xunta, he also does not plan to admit questions at an institutional reception for a women’s handball team. In the afternoon he will be in a tribute to the victims of an explosion that occurred five years ago in a parish in Tui (Pontevedra).
