Judge Manuel García-Castellón of the National Court has been the subject of controversy due to his constant judicial movements to obstruct the amnesty law. In this article, we will explore the judge’s actions and his impact on the Spanish judicial system.
A bottomless pit of judicial movements
García-Castellón has become a judge who never ceases to surprise with his actions. He always finds new ways to avoid getting caught by lawmakers and continues his fight against the amnesty law. A recent example of this is the Tsunami case, where the judge began to investigate Carles Puigdemont while the investiture of Pedro Sánchez was being negotiated. In addition, he accepted as an accusation two injured agents in Urquinaona in October 2019. These movements demonstrate his determination and the challenge of stopping him.
The silence that surrounds your attitude
The silence surrounding García-Castellón’s actions is striking. Neither the Council of the Judiciary, nor the judicial associations, nor the media have questioned his attitude. Although the vice president of Ecological Transition, Teresa Ribera, accused García-Castellón of lawfare and criticized the judiciary, he has not received much support from the Spanish government. This silence in the face of the judge’s abuses is unprecedented and raises questions about the judicial system and its ability to guarantee impartiality.
The context of the events
It is important to take into account the context in which these events take place. The events under investigation occurred more than four years ago, in the fall of 2023. During all this time, a prolonged investigation has been carried out in which President Puigdemont has not been involved. However, García-Castellón insists on keeping the judicial persecution alive and linking these events with terrorism. These actions raise questions about the judge’s objectivity and his motivations.
In short, Judge García-Castellón has proven to be an obstacle in the fight for the amnesty law. His constant judicial moves and provocative attitude raise questions about the impartiality of the Spanish judicial system. It is necessary to reflect on the silence that surrounds his actions and on the context in which the events unfold. The fight for justice and fairness continues, and it is everyone’s responsibility to ensure that the rights of all citizens are respected.
