Judgment of the rubbish in Calp: insufficient sentence, permanence of the PP and disappearance of the defrauded

OPINION

PSPV-PSOE of CALP

  • The news leaves us with more years of summary than conviction, the sad idea that crime pays and the complicit silence of political actors: the penalties have been few but they confirm the crime to the most incredulous
  • It is imperative to make it reach the public, that, as with the case of the cemetery, we are facing the same Popular Party: the current mayor, Ana Sala, awards, exhibits herself in public and boasts photos with the accused, now convicted

The long-awaited sentence of Brugal arrives, not definitive, that although it condemns three councilors of the Popular Party putting an end to a stage, it should open a profound space among the Calpine electorate for reflection on why and how what happened happened. The news leaves us with more years of summary than conviction, the sad idea that crime pays and the complicit silence of political actors.

To begin with, go ahead that part of the summary was still calculated in pesetas, and that the penalties have been reduced proportionally to that “delay” or unnecessary delay. Also, that at all times the role played by the local socialist group of Calp must be valued, whose private accusation was decisive in giving continuity and consistency to the case, taking into account that the intention of the PP in all its actions was to make to fade in time.

It is imperative to let the public know that, as with the case of the cemetery, we are facing the same Popular Party, the one that governed before and after the accused and the one that, with the support of Ciudadanos, continues to do so now. From the Mayor’s Office they hid in silence with the excuse that the Calpine Brugal plot was prosecuted while at the same time everything necessary was done so that the case did not prosper. Finally, the penalties have been few, but they confirm the crime to the most incredulous.

During the period of César Sánchez (2011-2019) the convenient thing was the imputation of his predecessor and godfather so that he finally got the mayor’s office by selling the Calpinos a false image of renewal. Nothing could be further from the truth: the pact to govern in 2015 with Popular Alternative perhaps led to the election by the city council of a legal office related to the Popular Party of Valencia: thus, the position of the city council, or private accusation, during this mandate consisted in exonerating all the imputed politicians and pointing out only Ángel, sorry, Mr. Fenoll. Yes, the same council affected in its indictment exonerated all politicians of the local Popular Party. A fact that went unnoticed but that should help to understand the framework of pacts, placements and favors, which continues to this day.

Nothing changes: now, the cemetery

Nothing has changed. Once again, a city council governed by the PP closes ranks with those accused of the cemetery case without denying them a legal defense paid for by all of us and without appearing in court as an injured administration. At the same time, our mayor, the popular Ana Sala, rewards, exhibits herself in public and boasts photos with the accused, now convicted.

Research in criminal psychology easily explains this attitude. It is a confluence of psychopathy, narcissism and Machiavellianism constituting the so-called dark triad of personality. A profile that unfortunately proliferates both in politics and in organized crime. It is a pattern of behavior that, although it is not clinical, can explain a lot to us. From the patrimonialization of the public to the intentional exclusion of all those who do not belong to a certain political organization or social stratum.

It would be a difficult exercise to separate these personality traits from the protagonists, but it would be equally difficult to separate one stage of the PP from another. In Calp we have been in the hands of loquacious and charming politicians for too long, who, while establishing superficial affections, emptied the coffers to help their own interests.

A citizen response is forced in the face of penalties that are considered insufficient and, above all, in the absence of an obligation to compensate or indemnify the citizens of Calp for the money that has disappeared. If the frustration is understandable, change is inexcusable.
