Madrid (EFE).- Dignity and Justice (DyJ) has demanded that “the liquidation of sentences of “all” the candidates for the elections by EH Bildu be collected and analyzed, after “the error suffered” with Sara Majarenas, exetarra. whose situation of ineligibility was not confirmed at first by the Public Ministry.
The San Sebastián Zone Electoral Board excluded Majarenas from the Bildu list for the elections in Astigarraga (Gipuzkoa) this Thursday after denouncing the victims’ association that this former member of ETA’s Levante commando did not comply until April 6, 2028 with the sentence of absolute disqualification that was imposed, according to the liquidation of the sentence calculated on Wednesday by the Executory Service of the National Court.
Faced with this circumstance, which the National Court Prosecutor’s Office ignored when it filed a first complaint by DyJ last week, the association has now sent a third complaint letter to the General Prosecutor’s Office, in addition to two other previous ones in which He advocated the illegalization of Bildu for including 44 candidates convicted of terrorism in these elections and that he later expanded with data that this practice had been common since 2015.
Dignity and Justice insists on the review of candidacies
In this new letter, to which EFE has had access, Dignidad y Justicia insists to the General Prosecutor’s Office that for the review of these 44 candidacies not to resort to “criminal history sheets” -as the National Court did- but to the liquidations of the sentence, “prior request to the Common Service of Executions of the National Court”.
In this sense, the association regrets the behavior of the Prosecutor’s Office “despite the request” that was made from the beginning “to be extremely zealous and cautious when it comes to verifying whether these candidates had fulfilled their absolute and special disqualifications”, since In these complaints “we already revealed the existing precedents in relation to the execution of disqualification sentences” and the lack of reliability in this sense of the criminal records.
In his new complaint, he also insists that the participation, “repeatedly and seriously”, of candidates convicted of terrorism in the electoral processes called since 2011, the year in which ETA announced the cessation of its terrorist activity, represents a clear violation of article 9.3 of the Party Law”.
A violation of the Law by EH Bildu, he adds, through “the legitimization of those convicted of such execrable terrorist crimes as representatives of the citizens, including them on their lists” to “undermine democratic principles, from within the institutions themselves.”
To try to prove this repetition of the presentation of “contaminated lists”, Dignity and Justice provides a list of the 89 candidates convicted of terrorism that Bildu has incorporated into his lists in the electoral processes called from 2011 until the elections next Sunday, December 28. May.
It should be remembered that in relation to another similar complaint from the association of civil guards JUCIL, the State Attorney General’s Office refused to urge the banning of EH Bildu, considering that it is “a democratic political formation”.
