Seville (EFE).- José Antonio Casanueva, grandfather of Marta del Castillo, the young Sevillian murdered in January 2009, has assured that the actions of the judges who have handled the case are “killing while alive” a family that this Friday He has remembered her along with her neighbors and that she continues to demand justice more than a decade later.
In an act held a few days after the 14th anniversary of the crime this Monday, Marta del Castillo’s grandfather wanted to present his thoughts “with the clarity he deserves” about a case in which he assures that there could be “a black hand” that can extend beyond the courts.
In them, his last request to investigate the mobile phones not only of the victim and his murderer, Miguel Carcaño, but also those of his brother, Francisco Javier Delgado, and his girlfriend, María García Mendaro, have recently been denied; of his friend Samuel Benítez and of the young Francisco Javier García, which has meant a new judicial setback for a piece that, according to the Public Ministry, “will remain open until the discovery of the body.”
Justice for Marta del Castillo
He has also regretted another file, the second, of the actions taken against Francisco Javier Delgado, brother of Miguel Carcaño, after the accusations in which he was attributed to being the main and true author of the crime.
Crime of which only Miguel Carcaño was found guilty, sentenced to twenty years in prison for murder, since the rest of the defendants ended up acquitted for lack of evidence.
In the statement, read by his friend José Luis Reina, the grandfather has asked the prosecutor’s office and judges for justice, who are “consenting that the truth is not known” so that it can be clarified where his granddaughter’s body is.
The repetition of a trial has also been requested in which, according to the grandfather, there has been a certain “obscurantism or neglect of functions” that have hindered the resolution of the case and the appearance of his granddaughter, who could not be said goodbye or her wife, “who left five years ago without being able to bring a bouquet of flowers.”
Casanueva, who at the age of 86 “does not care about everything” and thinks he is living “the last pages of his life calendar”, has assured that he will not stop his fight until God takes him and will focus again on January 24 in the Murillo Gardens in Seville.
There he will remember the fourteen years since the murder of his granddaughter and will continue to ask for justice that “is not unfair, since those who apply it are unfair” and they are “killing while they live” a family that will continue to fight to clarify the facts.
