Vox has presented in the National Court an accusation letter against Pablo Iglesias in which he requests a total of 13 years in prison and a fine for four crimes for the Vice President of the Government.
The brief is presented despite the fact that Iglesias is not even charged since his situation is in the hands of the Supreme Court, after Judge Manuel García Castellón sent the High Court the evidence that in his opinion supports the accusation of the gauge.
In this rationale, the judge pointed to the possible commission of the crimes of discovery and disclosure of secrets, computer damage and false report.
The Supreme Court has requested the opinion of the Prosecutor's Office on the opening of a case against Iglesias.

In addition, he retained the card of his adviser (a variant of the disclosure of secrets) that he received from the accused journalists and damaged it before returning it (computer damage).
In addition, Vox asks that the part of the case that was not referred to the Supreme Court and that reaches the retired commissioner
Jose Manuel Villarejo
