VALENCIA, July 20 (EUROPA PRESS) –
Former Vice President, ex-Speaker and former Minister for Equality and Politics Mónica Oltra will plead guilty on September 19 to the alleged cover-up of her ex-husband’s sexual abuse of a minor under guardianship.
As reported by the Supreme Court of the Valencian Community (TSJCV), Oltra is due to testify at 9:30 a.m. as part of the trial against her and 13 other people investigated for the management of the abuse case, facts for which she became ex-husband too condemned in his time.
The summons comes after the case has returned to the 15th Investigative Court of Valencia, the body that initiated the investigation.
During investigations last April, the judge discovered evidence of a “rational, serious and well-founded” offense against the then-registered Oltra, which required her to disqualify herself in favor of the TSJCV, which is responsible for investigating these proceedings.
The court, after examining the matter, decided to indict Oltra and ordered her to testify for the month of July, as it saw “a number of plural circumstantial evidence” leading to the assumption that there may have been a concert between the former Vice President and given to various officials “to protect your partner at the time or to protect the outlaw’s political career”.
Days later, however, the former vice president decided to resign from all public office, thereby losing her esteem. In this way the case has returned to the original court.
Specifically, this case is about the alleged cover-up of the sexual abuse that a 14-year-old minor suffered in an emergency shelter by Oltra’s ex-husband between 2016 and 2017. The governess was sentenced to five years imprisonment in a resolution ratified by the TSJCV.
After the sentencing, the minor, who was handcuffed to the governor’s trial, denounced the situation she found herself in while the case was being processed and a new judicial inquiry was opened by the court.
