He shares a box with Piqué and Puyol

The Spanish national team has reached the semi-finals of the European Championship this Friday after an epic victory in extra time against Germany. At the Stuttgart stadium, the fans have experienced moments of tension with the tackle that injured Pedri and also of joy with Mikel Merino’s goal in the last minute. In the stands, there were exceptional spectators: Gerard Piqué (with his son Milan), Carles Puyol and the President of the Government, Pedro Sanchezwho congratulated La Roja: “It was a match for the history books” and another spectacular victory. The whole of Spain has suffered and enjoyed with you until the very last minute. On to the semi-finals!

The leader of Moncloa has forgotten the judicial problems of Begoña Gomez alongside his German counterpart, the socialist Olaf Scholzwith whom he has shared conversations, laughs and even selfies. He seemed happy and relaxed after his wife’s statement was postponed on Friday morning due to an extension of the lawsuit against the ‘first lady’ that had not been communicated to her defense.

On July 19, Pedro Sánchez’s wife will have to return to the Plaza Castilla Courts to testify (if nothing prevents it this time) before Judge Peinado. The security deployment, much criticized this Friday, will be identical: Begoña arrived in a car with tinted windows that entered through the back door to avoid being captured by the journalists who were waiting and who were prohibited from approaching the door. The security barriers placed the media on the other side of the street, an unprecedented distance that has never been seen with other defendants of public relevance. Inside, several witnesses saw Begoña take an elevator accompanied by four other people and tried to take some photos with their phones, but the agents prevented them.

Begoña is accused of alleged influence peddling and private corruption in business, a complaint filed by the Manos Limpias group and which the Provincial Court of Madrid accepted for processing. It investigates Begoña Gómez’s relationship with the Globalia holding company, owner of an airline rescued by the Government; and with the businessman Juan Carlos Barrabés, in whose favour she signed two letters of recommendation for his candidacy for contracts awarded by a public entity. The European Prosecutor’s Office joined the case on 10 June, as the community body has evidence that Some of the events could have affected European funds.
