Gnova’s management has assured that they are aware of this via press today and are assessing what to do with their legal advisor, who may not have informed anyone of the contents of the appeal.
PP submitted an appeal requesting the acquittal of Luis Bersenas, but PP was not aware of that appeal. This sounds more like a creation of a quantum physics problem than a party’s actual legal position, but that’s what happened in the midst of a transfer of power by the ‘popular’. That is why the new PP leadership now withdraws the appeal, which Alberto Nez Feijo claims to have learned about this Monday “through the press”, and for which he specifically Blames the party’s lawyer.
PP’s legal adviser had demanded that the Supreme Court set aside last October’s National High Court sentence that sentenced him to ancillary civil liability for work at Gnova headquarters, paid in black. was. In that letter, the acquittal of former treasurer Luis Bersenes, sentenced in that case to two years in prison, for paying more than one million euros to the Unifica company for the improvement of PP’s national headquarters, is sought.
The Deputy Secretary-General of PP Esteban González Ponce assured in a press conference that everything is a misunderstanding, as Dern did not inform the new leaders about the process he had completed. “The national leadership learned today that an appeal by lawyers” requests the acquittal of Brasenas, he said.
“It was written in November and presented three days before the PP Congress as a precaution. We think it was part of the party’s defense, but in this case the legal strategy collides with the political strategy, so the leadership made the decision to withdraw that resource”, added the person in charge of the PP’s institutional sector.
And that the lawyer confirmed the presentation of the appeal in mid-April, when Feijo was already the chairman of the PP. But, according to Gnova’s version, he did not warn the new party leaders that he was asking for the acquittal of Brasenas as a legal tactic. Sources in Genoa say that the new management did not know of the material to date. So much, they say, that at first they thought it was not true, but then they found it to be true.
I mean, Feijo didn’t know what his lawyer was doing. Therefore, PP is going to “evaluate” other measures. That is to say: if the legal person in charge of the party ceases to act – according to the official version – on his own or not.
The truth is that Brasenas appears 76 times in an appeal signed by Jess Santos, a lawyer who works for PP from outside the organization. So the only plausible explanation for PP’s new leadership is that no one had access to the document and, therefore, no one was able to read it. At the Gnova team they confirm that the head of internal legal advice, Alberto Dern, did not report anything and that he would ultimately be responsible.
