Laura Borras asked her friend to provide a list of contracts the day after his arrest.

The official under investigation in the finger contracts case with the Institució de les Lletres Catalanes (ILC) has completed his change of defense strategy by delivering a final throw against the main defendant, current parliamentary speaker Laura Borras. This Wednesday, a civil servant asked the judge to open a case, arguing that he had never been involved in the award of two contracts to Borras’ friend Isaias H., so there could be no question of “criminal conspiracy” with the two defendants.

In his memo, the official’s defense, carried out by lawyer Juan Carlos Zayas, contextualizes the audio recordings that Borras sent to the judge and which were published by last week. The first of these, on December 19, 2017, in which Borras “urgently” requests all ILC contracts with his friend, occurred just a day after the arrest of Isaias H. by the Mossos squad in the same case.

“The request came the day after Isaias H. was detained by the police, which must have been the motive for Ms Borras’ request for information,” the defense says, emphasizing that on that day Borras was still director of the ILC, which is why he names the request “Not at all out of the ordinary.” “The request was made by his superior,” insists the defense of Roger E., who argues that the voice message “cannot constitute compromising evidence against him” because it was “a topical and innocuous request that does not allow for criminal liability.” connivance” with Borras and Isaias H.

The letter also talks about Borr’s visit to the ILC in early 2018, when the Junts leader was no longer in charge of the cultural institution, and the “strange offer” made by the deputy. According to the official, Borras introduced to the ILC staff “some people who were going to take over the tasks of maintaining the website” that Isaias H. had previously performed “without any evidence of a formal contract.” To this proposal by Borras, the official responded by “expressing a reservation and disagreement with the unusual proposal”, which, according to the defense, “is completely contrary to some degree of conformity or agreement with the intentions” of the leader of the juntas. .

In addition to all the materials presented against Borras, the official’s defense argues that his behavior in the ILC case cannot be criminal. Reason: This official was not responsible for the hiring of the ILC, therefore “he had no right of guarantor and control over the timeliness and legal suitability of the contracts concluded and concluded by Ms. Borras.” Roger E., defending his lawyer, had “neither the knowledge nor the function of legal advice or control over employment documents.”

Revelations by civil servant Roger E.P. trying to get rid of the reason for ILC contracts with fingers are missiles against Borras’ line of defense. First, the official provided three audio recordings in which she asked him to notify her if the Mossos went to the headquarters of the ILC. He was also interested, when he was no longer in charge of a government agency, in an unpaid bill to his friend Isaias H.

Roger EP did not stay on the tapes and submitted to the judge three reports of the Generalitat interfering with finger contracts in the ILC in 2013, 2014 and 2015, accusing Borras of the first of them and three chains. emails between the then director and various officials regarding reports.

The intervention reminded Borras that the primary contracts “cannot be divided” in order to reduce their amount and not exceed the €18,000 limit that requires a public tender. And he recommended “more careful planning” of contracting the various services of the ILC to carry out “aggregate contracts”, taking into account the risk of non-compliance with contract splitting provisions.

The conclusions of the interventionist were based on the fact that Isaias H. and the cooperative Xarxa Integral received a total of 63,000 euros in 2013 in the form of five selected contracts. This represents 34% of ILC’s small contracts this year and 21% of files. This scale “exceeds the maximum number of small contracts,” the interventionist warned in June 2014.

Borras took the interventionist’s recommendations with displeasure. Just an hour after receiving the preliminary report of the invasion, the leader of the juntas emailed officials. “I received this report with surprise to see that the contracts that we came to explain to you and that we needed to complete for the digital implementation of this new stage of ILC are subject to control,” Borras said.

The forensic and Mossos d’Esquadra investigation allege that the Xarxa Integral co-op was only a front for the money to also end up in the accounts of Isaias X. Borras, a friend who submitted budgets attributed to other people or co-ops associated with him to the ILC. , so that in all cases he was awarded the project, according to the mechanics of fraud described by the judge. A total of 18 suspicious contracts amount to 330,442.65 euros.
