Federico Trillo don't know nothing and never knew anything about the sentenced illegal financing of the PP, or on payments in b to various leaders of that education is reflected in the so-called papers of Barcenas. That was the leitmotiv of the essential appearance this Tuesday at the Congress of what was considered as the architect and the workman, during years of defense and maneuvering court made by the PP to counteract the damages of the case Gürtel.
The former minister and former president of the Cortes, Federico Trillo, 30 years in politics at the highest level from the bowels of the people's Alliance to the dome of the PP, qualified Tuesday before the commission on the funding spot of the PP in the Congress to the charges made in his time, when it exploded in 2009, the case Gürtel against the former minister, the socialist Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba as the author of what then attempted to disqualify as an assembly against that party. Trillo opted on Tuesday for pointing out best as the promoters of that operation to the current minister of Justice, Dolores Delgado, the exjuez Baltasar Garzón and the excomisario retired Jose Manuel Villarejo, and to the heads of the UDEF, the office of anti-corruption of the National Police.MORE INFORMATION the judge in The ‘case Barcenas’ calls to Inside information about an alleged “theft” to the extesorero of the PP, The b-box of the PP, closer to the trial The deputy of the PP, Beatriz Escudero Ruffian: “I do Not guiñes the eye, asshole”
Federico Trillo confessed that before jump in 2009, the case Gürtel the then president of the PP, Mariano Rajoy, given the task of talking to the PSOE of José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero to close the pact against terrorism, and that is why he struck up a close, intense, successful and smooth relationship with Rubalcaba. The leader of the popular indicated that they always suspected that behind that case "there were other things," but against what we did then, that it was aim against Rubalcaba as Interior minister, on Tuesday confessed that it was "complicated" and that now in the light of the discussions and recordings known of Villarejo believes that the drivers were involved in a controversial hunt in Jaén in 2009, and among which were the then minister of Justice, Mariano Fernández Bermejo, the exjuez Baltasar Garzón, the exfiscal and now minister of Justice, Dolores Delgado, and police officers.
The deputy ERC, Gabriel Ruffian, tried it again, as it has done with other attendees, cause Trillo requesting if ashamed of something done in the past and tildándole of "negligent" for having been considered for decades as an "Attila" of the PP and want to go now as someone outside of everything related to your financing.Trillo replied: "do You truly believe that, if there was a box it was like the piggy of the Mission that they were at the doors of the party?". And it was there when he advanced who has never had a good opinion of police officers at the front of the UDEF that inquired about this case.
"I have Not charged any amount for my services, or to PP for any concept that has not had its things to be clear and its transparency with the Treasury". Was the statement to which Trillo repeated at various times during his appearance two and a half hours before the commission of inquiry to Hilbet questions of different spokespersons. Several of these deputies will read and detailed the numerous occasions on which your name and your first name and last name are contained in the so-called papers of Barcenas as a receiver of money opaque, and not accounted for officially. Trillo denied any truth to these powers, or "assumptions", like the crossed-out, although it does accept that in certain moments of his long political career, the RFP provided "plug-ins" economic for their work, and even paid minutes for their legal advice, but stating that is always perfectly declared to the public Treasury.
The president of Congress was allowed to cuestinar the judgment of may 2018 of the National Audience on the funding spot of the PP to the point that it is not firm, because it is under appeal, because only points against that party to title lucrative and, above all, because neither before nor during the investigation of the case Gürtel nor at the trial, no judge has pointed to him as affected, investigated, or accused. And that fact helped him then to rebut any personal involvement when questioned other members about his role as legal coordinator of the PP at that time almost at the same time that the then secretary general, Dolores de Cospedal, held meetings with the excomisario Villarejo related to Gürtel. Trillo said that he never knew Villarejo, and denied that Cospedal will inform you of anything about it.
The seasoned politician he showed his knowledge of the paperwork and the bureaucracy of parliament, after passing in the Congress for 22 years as a deputy nursery for Alicante and four even as president of the chamber, to evade the questions more complicated and delay their responses to long exposures on smaller aspects of his career or about the dates and the name of your countless charges. His demeanor was polite at all times, without losing the forms, but do not provide data or relevant contributions.
Trillo, who was also chief of cabinet of Manuel Fraga, was grabbed that was only a year really in a position organic within the PP, as responsible for the area of freedoms and Justice between 1989 and 1990, to escape any financial responsibility or on the accounts of the party in his 30-year career. The former mp, however, was at the forefront of the coordination of the actions of the parliamentary groups and even more relevant was the one in charge of taking the response strategy in the case Naseiro (other extesorero of the PP affected by a scandal) or the case Gürtel, providing even the name of the lawyer Miguel Bajo, which he defended in the first instance to Luis Barcenas.
In the papers of Barcenas are several payments in pesetas and euros to Federico and Federico Trillo, between the year 2000 and the year 2006, but he refused to have anything to do with that, nor to know why the extesorero that both helped when he jumped the case was able to have so much interest in damaging him to the point so directly. Trillo turned to reply: "I'm surprised these references because I didn't have any type of financial responsibility in the PP, nor do I know your accounts or financial affairs". The former president of the Congress clung as well to the same type of interventions that have been had before the commission, former chairmen of the PP or the five exsecretarios general that have already appeared. And even allowed some derision when he advised the young deputies present in the room: "When it is delivered to the policy, with exclusive dedication, is not to account".
also, former minister and former president balearic Jaume Matas also appeared on the morning of Tuesday before the same committee, but in this case by video link from the prison of the madrid town of Aranjuez where from the past month of June, complies with the sentence of three years and eight months of imprisonment imposed by the Supreme Court in the case Nóos. The former president of the balearic islands accumulates until six convictions for various corruption cases. In 2015 already served nine months in prison of Segovia for an offence of traffic of influence by a piece of the case 'Palma Arena'. The former minister of José María Aznar still has a pending trial in which the Prosecutor's office claim for him, four and a half months in prison and 16 years of disqualification for the alleged manipulation of a public tender to award the construction works of the hospital of son Espases in Palma.
