The PP calls on politicians in the Suárez government to give their opinion in the Senate on the new memory law



The PP requested the appearance before the Constitutional Commission in the Senate of “relevant” figures of the transition, such as former Ministers Rodolfo Martín Villa or Rafael Arias Salgado, to give their opinion on the Law of Democratic Memory passed in Congress, and that will be debated in the House of Lords around the turn of the summer.

In particular, they request the presence of Rodolfo Martín Villa; Rafael Arias Salgado, Marcelino Oreja Aguirre; Soledad Becerril Bustamante; Juan Antonio Ortega and Diaz-Ambrona; and Carmela García-Moreno Teixeira, several of them members of Adolfo Suárez’s government.

According to Commission spokeswoman and PP General Secretary in the House of Lords Amelia Salanueva, the Democratic Memory Bill contains “significant flaws and vices that disqualify it as a truly democratic law.” “This is not only an insult to the victims of ETA terrorism, but also ‘an insult to all Spaniards,'” he says.


In his opinion, the agreement that the PSOE reached with Bildu in Congress means that the bill was drafted by “representatives of the murderers, kidnappers and extortionists who have done so much damage to Spanish society by attacking life, liberty and democracy to have”.

In a statement collected by Europa Press, the PP claims that the bill represents “a frontal attack” on the constitutional regime and an attempt to “delegitimize” the transition and pact between Spaniards.

Salanueva has explained that the rule “casts suspicion” over the whole process that brought democracy to Spain and the system of freedoms and welfare and “calls into question the legitimacy and democratic nature of the transition and the Spanish Constitution itself “, she said.

Finally, it also asks if “perhaps Felipe González’s socialist executive was an illegitimate government and heir to Francoism” since the law recognizes victims until 1983. “When there were already regional, general municipal elections and the attempted coup.” etat of 23-F when democracy is fully consolidated in Spain”, he has developed.
