Compromís does not see Oltra in danger if she is investigated and points to the Prosecutor's Office: "We are all impressionable"

The general secretary of Més and co-spokesperson of Compromís, Àgueda Micó, has pointed out that the vice president of the Generalitat Valenciana and minister of Equality and Inclusive Policies, Mónica Oltra, has "all the support" of the formation and has opted to reach "until the end of the matter" despite "the pressure" and "although there are judicial accusations", while defending that his party "is not going to be based on conjecture, even if they come from the Prosecutor's Office." “We are all impressionable,” she has expressed.

This was stated by Micó this Saturday in Valencia, in statements to the media before intervening in the National Council of Més-Compromís, and asked by the prosecutor's office for the case of the alleged cover-up of abuse of a minor by a educator - Oltra's ex-husband.

The Public Ministry sees a plan by the vice president to hide and discredit the abuses.

The leader of Més Compromís has considered that the Oltra affair "is more a persecution than a real event" and has pointed out that in the coalition they are "used to political and judicial persecution", given that the vice president "is not the first position who suffers them”.

In this sense, he has defended that "neither the right nor the extreme right can put and remove charges" from Compromís and has expressed his support for Oltra. "We will go to the end and Compromís will come out the winner of this issue", he added.

Asked about the report from the Public Ministry, Micó has slipped that it could be influenced, as there is "a political and judicial environment that has marked certain positions." And in her opinion, "what the Prosecutor's Office does is add or take baggage from what is in the media, politically and socially."

"All of society is influenced and we feed each other," he said, while pointing out to the Prosecutor's Office that it must "be based on the events that have occurred and not on conjecture and prejudice." Thus, he has expressed his wish that "these facts be judged and we will see what the reality of what has happened is and the enormous work that is being done in that Ministry and that has never gone against any person who is in a center of minors".

For this reason, he has urged the Prosecutor's Office to "judge the facts, if any, that constitute a crime, and those are the ones that have to mark the actions that Compromís has to take in this regard." "We are not going to base ourselves on conjecture even if they come from the Prosecutor's Office," he assured.

In any case, Micó has claimed that Oltra "has the ability to defend herself", to explain "what has really happened in the Ministry" and that the facts are judged "taking into account the reality and the day-to-day work that does» the Department of Equality and Inclusive Policies.

The general secretary of Més Compromís has assured that in the coalition they are "used to working under pressure", has guaranteed that "we will continue to do so even if there are judicial accusations" and has insisted that the red line "is the same that we have followed with all public offices”. "We think and we are certain that they have suffered persecution and have done a good job," she added.

Micó has given the example of other legal cases that have affected Compromís charges and has defended that "until now all the criminal complaints of the right and the extreme right that have been tried, many of them reaching an oral trial, have ended up demonstrating the innocence of our charges, and this - that of Oltra - is one more». "We cannot allow the political persecution of the extreme right to mark the political and strategic line of Compromís," he stressed.

For Micó, «what the right and the extreme right want, not only in this case, is that they file complaints against us and try to make it clear that the people of the Botànic are the same as the PP, because they have been governing for many years with cases of political corruption and prevarication, and they want to give that image.

Faced with this, he has defended that "the people" and the electorate of Compromís are "very clear who each of us is" and that the people who govern the Generalitat Valenciana at this time "do things with great transparency." "They try to find a space to take us to a situation that is not real," she criticized.

Finally, asked about the position Oltra would be in if she is finally investigated in order to be a Compromís candidate in the 2023 elections, Àgueda Micó stressed that the current vice president "has earned the right to be whatever she wants to be" and He has remarked that in the coalition there is "a primary process to choose the candidates." "Mónica has to choose what her path is and we will give her support," she added.
