Interior Ministry Defies Justice, Returns to Reward Commissioner Convicted of Torture

Date: October 2, 2022 Time: 20:04:35

The Home Office is defying justice by awarding a pension medal to a dozen retired former commissioners whose confessions were revoked in 2021 given the lack of motivation in the files and shortcomings in the prosecution process, which is why several police unions disputed the previous call.

Despite this court decision, the National Police, which is dependent on the Ministry of the Interior, again included in the order of police merit for the silver medal of the commissioners Eloy Quiroz, Francisco Javier Miguelañez, Francisco López Canedo, Hector Moreno, Francisco. Rodriguez, Jose Maria Moreno Moreno and Manuel Paez. This medal, the maximum professional award they can receive, entails a lifetime pension increase equivalent to 15% of base salary.

As this newspaper has already reported, Hector Moreno was previously tried for torture and illegal detention. The events took place in 1982 in the Malasaña district of Madrid, when several agents detained passers-by “for no reason” and then beat them and threatened them. The agents also falsified the police report. The police officer was later pardoned by Aznar’s government.

By a ruling dated May 10, the Central Administrative Court No. 11 of the National High Court reversed the procedure by which these commissioners were included to receive the silver medal.

It should be remembered that they all ended their professional careers in the National Police when they were 65 years old and that they have now been selected for this award due to the end of their career without meeting the necessary requirements for recognition of this type. .

Union reaction

The court took into account the demands submitted by the police unions CEP, JUPOL and UFP and annulled “because they were not in accordance with the law” the bonuses, which included life pensions, published in orders of the Ministry of the Interior, received in turn in the Emergency General Order of the National Police of September 16, 2021 .

Police unions have now confirmed their criticism. The CEP advocated the importance of “ending the practice of awarding medals that is not objective, transparent and fair.” After the National High Court’s ruling, he stressed that the judge emphasized the relevance of trade union organizations in the process leading up to these awards, which should in no way “offend the thousands of colleagues who are risking their lives.” daily, and they don’t come home with extra pay.”

CEP assures that these medals “cast a shadow on the hundreds of laudable and risky interventions carried out by active members of the National Police, who risk their lives on the streets throughout Spain.” Once again, the union adds, “they have not been recognized by internal affairs, which maintain as a reference provision in this area a 58-year-old law approved during the dictatorship and never updated by successive governments to democratize it and impose it on such principles. like transparency and objectivity.

In its previous decision, the National Court condemned the lack of clarity in the award procedure, in particular, Francisco Javier Miguelañez, who also led the investigation against Commissioner José Manuel Villarejo, Francisco Rodriguez López, Hector Moreno and José María Moreno. Dark. A few months ago, the same thing happened due to the lack of an “individual offer” with other managers: Eloy Quiros, Manuel Paez and Francisco López Canedo.

The judge realized that the merit requirements for receiving silver medals set out in section 5 of the 1964 Act governing the grounds for awarding a gold or silver cross in such cases as death or grievous bodily injury, as well as services of transcendent importance or which imply merit of an extraordinary nature.
