  • Pandemic: judicial data doubles the official number of deaths from Covid-19 in Castilla y León and Castilla-La Mancha
  • Collapse: The Government carries out the decree against the collapse of justice due to the coronavirus with the votes against the PP, Vox and Citizens

The president of the Superior Court of Justice of Castilla y León, José Luis Concepción Rodríguez, believes that "the Government is using the paralysis of the country for different purposes to save the population from the coronavirus."

In addition, the judge has assured that "the state of alarm allows to limit some right but not to suspend them, and the Spanish we have suspended some fundamental rights such as freedom of movement", which makes him doubt about whether we are in a state of alarm or exception. In an interview on Onda Cero , the magistrate has insisted that these statements constitute only a merely "legal" reflection.

The Burgos-based TSJ offered data for the first time on Tuesday for the deaths, corresponding to the past months of March and April. Limited to accounting for the data confirmed with Covid-19 as a cause of death, the number rises 18% over that of the ministry (which in turn adds the data provided by the CCAA). But counting the "suspicious" cases, this increase reaches 107%: instead of 1,770 deaths, they would have been 3,672.

"More than twice as many deaths"

"The official figures are more than doubling" and "Spaniards have the right to know, at least, the truth," Concepción argued this Thursday when asked about this issue.

The magistrate maintains that "it does not seem correct that the streets have become crowded and that businesses and courts cannot function 100%." "The briefs are flooding the judicial organs and a major collapse is going to take place" in the courts when normalcy resumes after the state of alarm.

In this regard, he stressed that "the Government must adopt all legal measures to try to stop this epidemic, but it must also put in place the means to immediately reactivate the economy of this country." "They must combine both risks," added the togado.
