Carromer time

This was the only resignation in the city council of Madrid, when the President of the Community accused the leadership of the PP of organizing espionage against it from there. His departure was never explained, and now all eyes are on him. But the former general coordinator of the mayor’s office of Madrid, Angel Carromero, has not yet notified the chairman of the commission of inquiry into the alleged espionage if he is going to testify next Monday, May 9. will be the last session held by this body. Carromero maintains tension, and his silence causes great nervousness in the entourage of Mayor José Luis Martinez-Almeida and the adviser himself, who wants to ensure that he puts the finishing touch to the commission of inquiry with his version. events. No one expects him to bring anything new, but this is a way to make sure everything is under control now that Pablo Casado has died politically, Ayuso has lost all interest in events that he considered very serious and which started the biggest internal conflict . crisis in the People’s Party.

Almeida did not even specify the time of his appearance, waiting for Carromero to confirm whether he would be present or not. The PP will support the fact that the mayor will be the last to testify at the afternoon session. In the meantime, opposition groups are preparing their questionnaires for both to try to determine the political responsibility that may exist in this matter. Because although the espionage has not been carried out, given the internal controls that exist to contract EMVS and EMT for these purposes, the suspicion is that steps were taken to try to gain access to the banking or fiscal documents of Isabel Diaz Ayuso’s brother, in order to prove that they received a commission for a contract awarded by the Community to continue.

Ayuso spoke directly from the first second about espionage, which, after many weeks, no one could prove. It remains unknown who ordered the tracing of secret documents shedding light on the accusations of Tomas Diaz Ayuso: more than 300,000 euros through the company of a friend who sold 1.5 million euros worth of masks to the Madrid government.

And on top of that, another question hits: why did Carromero resign if, as the mayor said, “he had nothing to do with the case? These are two big problems that remain unanswered. And this is what the municipal representatives are asking the former general coordinator of the mayor’s office to clarify who, along with Almeida, is the person who knows the whole ins and outs of this case best of all.

There is information published by the ABC newspaper, which states that the man was allegedly sent by Carromero – “a tall, swarthy young man of about 30, who identified himself as Javier Munoz” – to meet in late March at the Wellington Hotel in Madrid with the owner of the Mira detective agency, Julio Gutjes to probe him for these banking and tax documents, which are confidential.

The name matches that of an adviser in User to Councilor Loreto Sordo, who appeared on the committee last week and denied having anything to do with the matter. From Mor Madrid, they suspect that “impersonation” may have taken place, and point out that the person who may have actually tried to hire the detective was José Cruz Mata, a close friend of Carromero and also adviser to Loreto Sordo, but in Moncloa- Arawak region. However, this Friday, during a speech to the commission of inquiry, Cruz Mata said that he did not know Julio Gutjes and had never tried to hire any detective. This is one of the episodes that the bands want to try to clear up for Carromero.

Resignation in “postponed”

Carromero, who served as director general of the Madrid City Council, one of the posts closest to the mayor, announced his “imminent” resignation on February 17, just the day he was listed as one of the main figures in various reports. in alleged spying on the President of the Community of Madrid from the Municipal Housing and Land Company (EMVS).

His step back, which was touted as a voluntary resignation in order to “be able to defend himself” and “not damage the City Council’s image,” raised some eyebrows, given that the mayor had shown up early the previous morning and said he had spoken to his councilor “during the day.” ” the day before “on various occasions”, after the first news was reported, and Carromero denied the facts. “He categorically denied that he had taken any action to obtain information about Ayuso or his relatives,” said Almeida, who handed down the verdict: “After investigations were carried out, we came to the conclusion that The detective denies the meeting, that the worker denies the meeting, that there is no contract, and that it is impossible to produce any order or any payment in public money from the city council to obtain information of this kind.

However, in the next line, he warned that “there is no place for any abnormal behavior or behavior that is not exemplary in any position in the Madrid City Council” and that “in the event of indications that there is a person holding a position in Cibeles, who has exercised control to obtain this information, it will be terminated immediately ”, whether it be Carromero or any other person.

Carromero fell after Almeida’s meeting with the media director, who warned the mayor that he had compromising evidence. It was later revealed that the person who actually wrote the resignation letter and scanned his signature was Vicente Javier Segura Fayos, a member of the mayor’s office. To make the document official, this adviser took a document from Carromero’s office signed by him and scanned the signature. The maneuver was made in order not to appear at an extraordinary meeting of the Commission on Security and Emergency Situations, which the opposition demanded to convene. The NP then stated that she was not called in a timely manner and, in addition, Carromero was no longer head of the city council. So Almeida’s adviser left without giving the slightest explanation.

A few days later, Carromero also resigned his posts in the PP in Madrid, where he was chairman of the electoral commission and the district of Chamartin, and resigned as a member of the party. Carromero was called to testify at the first meeting of the commission of inquiry, but stated that he could not attend and requested that the date be changed. Since then, nothing has been heard from him, until last week he asked to find a place for him on May 9th. This is the last day of the commission, and it is on this day that Almeida will speak. Why hasn’t he shown any signs of life yet? Few people know this, because Carromero, since he left the town hall, hardly speaks to his former colleagues. Relations with the mayor deteriorated.

Other disputes

Last April, the ABC newspaper published information that he had joined the Marquis de Oliva Foundation, chaired by Alejandro Suárez Sánchez-Ocaña, which aims to “promote and encourage the figure of a private investor, also known as a “business angel”, and this kind endangered, entrepreneur in Spain”, as stated on the website of this institution.

The figure of Carromero has been involved in more than one controversy. In 2012, the former president of New Generations of PP was convicted and imprisoned for the reckless murder of Cuban opponents Oswaldo Paya and Harold Cepero in a car accident in Cuba. Esperanza Aguirre, ex-president of the Community of Madrid, sought his extradition to Spain, where he continued to serve his sentence until 2013.

Some time later, his closeness to Pablo Casado helped him rise to positions in the PP. In 2019, just a month before the general election, the party rehabilitated him and appointed him deputy secretary of the electoral commission in Madrid. In addition, Almeida signed him to assist him in the administration at the head of the consistory. Literally three years later, his figure faded again. Next Monday it will be known what role the plumber of the mayor of Madrid played in the case of alleged spying on the regional president. The stakes are crossed on whether he will go or not.
