In ‘El Balance’ by Federico Quevedo on Capital Radio, the interviews continue. This time it is the Autonomous Coordinator and spokesperson for Ciudadanos in the Balearic Islands, Patricia Guasp, who gives her opinion on current affairs.
She talks about a piece of news that comes from the European Parliament and surprised the Spanish government, which has not yet made a statement. According to what became known on Monday, the Parliament has asked the Second Vice-President of the Government, Pablo Iglesias, for explanations about the sexual abuse of minors under the tutelage of the Balearic Government.
The spokesperson for Ciudadanos, Patricia Guasp, denounces the “13 months of inaction, silence and omission from the Consell de Mallorca and the Government of the Islands”.
Brussels has also asked the Ministry of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, and the president of the Balearic government, Francina Armengol, for explanations. However, as Guasp explains, neither the Consell nor the Balearic government has taken action on the matter, despite her party’s insistence.
As Guasp explains in the interview, Ciudadanos was the first political group to register a parliamentary initiative to open a commission of enquiry into the issue. However, this initiative has been rejected by the three parties present in the Balearic Government and the Consell (Partido Socialista, Podemos and Mes Per Mallorca). The coordinator also points out that these abuses could have been going on for at least five years “without anyone doing anything”.
Through ‘El Balance’, a programme hosted by Federico Quevedo on Capital Radio, Influence Spain is able to expand its network of contacts within the national, regional and municipal spectrum.
