• Council of Ministers Pedro Sánchez obviates the Amnesty Law and will investigate crimes of the Franco regime

  • Analysis: Memory Law, the penultimate definitive victory of the PSOE against the Franco regime, by Rafa Latorre

The secretary general of Vox in the Congress of Deputies, Macarena Olona, ​​announced this Thursday that her formation will appeal the

Memory Law

, whose preliminary draft the Council of Ministers approved this Tuesday, considering that it violates "fundamental rights" such as "freedom of expression, of association and ideological ".

In an interview on esRadio, collected by Europa Press, Olona has criticized that the Executive intends to "win with a law what they lost on the battlefield."

"They intend to rewrite the history that my ancestors closed with bleeding wounds with great dignity and sacrifice," he pointed out.

According to Olona, ​​and "due to the information" known, the Memory Law also violates "the exclusive jurisdiction guaranteed by

article 117

of the


", which establishes that "in order for victims to be recognized, an offender must be published."

In this line, the Vox leader has explained that the appeal will be presented once the Memory Law is approved in the Congress of Deputies.

In her opinion, it is a "further advance of ideological sectarianism whose paradigm is extreme left communism" that "is in power because of the ignominy" of the PSOE.

Thus, Olona has criticized that this law is intended to "declare the nullity of the sentences imposed by the dictatorship" and that it wants to "implement a special prosecutor's office in the

Supreme Court

, which will not act as a prosecutor but as a historian."

"And it will not be objective, but at the service of the government that wants to repeal

the Amnesty Law

and undermine the legitimacy of the Constitution," he added.

The spokeswoman for the party chaired by Santiago Abascal has also argued that "the desecration of the grave of General" Francisco Franco "was the excuse" of the Government.

"To overthrow the monarchy and the cross is the next objective," he continued, to later recall that, "in 2018, Podemos asked to tear down the cross of the Valley of the Fallen."
