KOPI, Madrid – The indulgence shown by Spanish justice, through its small arrangements with the precious goods of the leader of the Polisario separatists, the so-called Brahim Ghali, betrays a real reversal of values and constitutes a denial of justice, purely and simply, underline MM. Mohamed Aujjar, Khalihenna Ould Errachid and Ahmed Herzenni in an article published on Sunday by the Spanish newspaper “La Razon”.
Even though the victims have devoted all their energies and resources to bringing the illegal and reprehensible acts of which they have been subjected to justice, the Spanish justice does not use the means at its disposal to ensure, as it should, respect for the legality of which it is the guardian, indicate the authors of this column entitled Ghaligate, or the making-of of a denial of justice.
What is deeply disturbing in the telenovela which scrolls before our eyes amazed by the gap between a Spanish justice that we respect and its behavior that we condemn, it is not only the ease with which the so-called Brahim Ghali is spared and his victims ignored , but also and above all the self-sabotage to which the judicial system lends itself, which seems to weaken its own file, observes the forum, specifying that the hearing of the so-called Ghali by videoconference does not go to the against the position of the Spanish Constitutional Court, which insists on “the personal and direct examination of the persons appearing, which implies the temporal and spatial coincidence of the person making the declaration, and of the one before whom this one declares”.
Even though he is accused not of one but of two rapes, arbitrary detention, torture, terrorism and crimes against humanity, by Spanish nationals and associations and families of victims, the so-called Ghali is barely “invited” to appear before the judge “if his state of health allows it”, deplore MM. Aujjar, Ould Errachid and Herzenni, adding that, in order not to disturb his peace in the slightest, it is by videoconference that he will be able to make his statement to the judge, from the comfort of his VIP suite at Logroño hospital, where he arrived from Algeria in a private jet and under good escort.
It does not take much skepticism to seriously doubt that a simple videoconference could give rise to the initiation of a trial in the case of the so-called Ghali, they note, adding that it is window dressing, to hide that what is being prepared is not the bringing to justice of the so-called Ghali, but quite the opposite: his judicial money laundering and his legal exfiltration.
For the authors of the forum, it is one thing to claim the independence of justice, and another to demonstrate its impartiality, noting that, by its gravity, its scale, its symbolism and its victims, the case of the so-called Brahim Ghali is the opportunity that will no longer appear before the Spanish courts to prove its independence and impartiality.
Everything suggests, in any case, that the so-called Ghali is surrounded by such benevolence that the judge does not even dare to summon him in person, and is content to send him an invitation – almost an “announcement” – for a videoconference interview! Any litigant in his place would be imprisoned at that moment, with a security device commensurate with the means of escape at his disposal, they insist.
What greater proof of collusion than to leave the accused the leisure to comply, at his ease, with the imperative to which justice is entitled and able to compel him, underlines the forum.
What are the victims saying? Have we even thought about it? They must certainly think that it is indeed the world upside down: when they finally enjoy the palpable prospect of seeing their executioner explain himself to justice, it is this same justice that prevents them from obtaining their right, they denounce.
When indulgence becomes permissiveness and when to tolerate amounts to not judging, we are witnessing an extra-judicial murder of the rights and sufferings of the victims, deplore the authors of the tribune, specifying that the victims will not even find there. meaning to console themselves.
He calls him Ghali, they believe, would return to the hiding he had taken refuge in since he had to leave Spain to escape his criminal responsibilities 13 years ago. Except today, he would regain his criminal hiding by the path of a legal underground that tries to take place by believing itself out of sight.
But, in fact, you only look at her; this so prudish justice. The arrangements granted to the so-called Ghali will only hold. (PERSISMA/Red)
