The Court of Instruction Number 15 of Madrid, in charge of the investigations of the ‘Plus Ultra case’, has asked the Prosecutor, the State Attorney, Vox and those investigated in the procedure to rule on the proposal of the PP of “agree to the constitution of a movable mortgage on the aircraft or aircraft that the airline may have as assets”.
In a ruling of August 18, advanced by Vozppuli and to which Europa Press has had access, the magistrate Antonio Serrano-Arnal – on guard duty in the absence of Judge Esperanza Collazos – has sent the parties to present their allegations within 10 days.
The Popular Party, which exercises popular accusation in the case, presented a written document to the court on August 11 to request, as a precautionary measure, thate agree to a movable mortgage on Plus Ultra aircraft in order to avoid property damage to the State. Due to this, the judge has considered it pertinent to consult the rest of the parties in the procedure.
The resolution takes place after on August 9, the acting magistrate on duty, Jaime Serret, will agree unlock the payment of 34 million euros that correspond to the second tranche of the rescue to Plus Ultra. The decision was appealed by Vox, which also serves as a popular accusation.
The judge considered that the suspension of the delivery of the participative loan could “suppose the risk of definitive insolvency” of the airline, which would force it to stop operating and create “a loss to the passengers who have paid in advance.”
On that occasion, the court assured that although “no damage has yet been produced to the Administration”, the “hypothesis of having delivered these loans to a companies in crisis without any possibility” of repaying the amounts acquired is being investigated.
He also pointed out that for now “there are no objective indications” of the crime of fraud in obtaining public aid or bribery or influence peddling, “except for the allegations of popular accusations.”
