The judge of the National Court Eloy Velasco has defended that “the judges must be allowed to work, especially if they have evidence”, in reference to the criticism of the third vice president, Teresa Ribera, of the AN judge Manuel García Castellón. He said this this Monday in statements to the media after his conference ‘Limits in the investigation of sexual crimes with AI among minors’ organized by the Abat Oliba CEU University (UAO CEU) during a seminar on cybercrime. “You have to read the judicial resolutions before putting the judges into the campaign,” according to Velasco, who has equated the judges with doctors, and has asked that they be allowed to operate and to see later whether or not they have cured the cancer. On Friday, Ribera reproached the judge investigating ‘Democratic Tsunami’ (a case in which the former president of the Generalitat Carles Puigdemont is being investigated for alleged terrorism) for his “desire” to speak out in “sensitive political moments” like the current one, when processing the amnesty law, with Puigdemont as one of the beneficiaries. That same Friday, the Criminal Chamber of the AN defended García Castellón, denying that he acted with “an alleged political motivation as a judicial response to the investiture agreement between the PSOE and Junts per Catalunya parties and to the proposed amnesty law.” “.
