The judge accuses the Minister of Health of Catalonia of late vaccination of police and security guards.

Date: August 20, 2022 Time: 04:31:25

A judge in Barcelona is investigating the current Minister of Health of the Generalitat, Carmen Cabezas, and three other Catalan health officials for discriminating against police and civilian guards in last year’s COVID-19 vaccinations. The case arose as a result of complaints from the Union of the National Police, the Corps of Police Justice (JUPOL) and the Association of Civil Guards, Civil Justice (JUCIL).

The Supreme Court of Catalonia (TSJC) confirmed what was put forward by El Mundo, namely that the judge is investigating Cabezas for evasion and a crime against workers’ rights – the deputy general director for health promotion at the time of the facts – and three other health positions in the Catalan administration, including Adria Comella, current manager of the Sant Pau Hospital and director of the Catalan Health Service during the vaccination process. An announcement date has not yet been set.

Discrimination in the vaccination of police officers and security guards has already been settled in the arbitration-administrative court, but now the case has been transferred to the criminal court. The judge concluded that the Generalitat’s vaccination plan was “discriminatory” against members of the National Police and the Civil Guard of Catalonia. The Catalan Supreme Court had already ordered the government in April, shortly after the controversy broke out, to vaccinate these agents “without delay”, an order that the Ministry of Health complied with despite deeming the judgment “ludicrous”.

The judges concluded that the Generalitat “was inactive with regard to its obligation to provide medical assistance to the Civil Guard and the national police in its work to supply vaccines against COVID-19.” This inaction at the start of the vaccination process for key populations in March 2021 “resulted in an unreasonable and discriminatory difference in the treatment of these national authorities in relation to the regional and local police and emergency authorities, with which they were supplied with vaccines faster and more efficiently”, the judges noted.

The controversial ruling called on the Generalitat to “continue” this vaccination activity “on equal terms” and ordered the Catalan administration to pay the costs of the process, up to a maximum of 4,000 euros.
