The escort Aline Fernanda de Siqueira Maschietto and the lawyer Cándido Conde-Pumpido Varela, the son of the president of the Constitutional Court, are about to say goodbye at the door of the lawyer's house. It's 9:52 a.m. on November 3. Throughout the early hours of the morning, the cameras installed inside Conde-Pumpido's home record the couple's movements and, at that moment, already in the daytime, both climb the ramp that gives access to the almost 500-square-meter estate located in the San Blas neighborhood of Madrid after having spent the night together.
A minute later, at 9:53 a.m., the camera records the transformation of Aline Fernanda de Siqueira: the 37-year-old Brazilian decides to re-enter the house. The camera that focuses on the courtyard accounts for the movement. Count-Pumpido, dressed in a tracksuit, ignores Aline's change of heart. He directs his steps towards the house and says "I'll fix it, don't worry. I'm going to fix it." From the doorway, Aline thanks him. At 10:08 a.m., cameras located in the bedroom and what looks like a kitchen, record an altercation. Aline bangs on a door. Count-Pumpido asks him to stop. "Aline, please stop punching. Aline, you're out of control, please." The voices of the woman who denounced Cándido Conde-Pumpido reach the bedroom. The lawyer is calmer than she is: "I'm not going to open the door," he tells her.
Crónica has been able to access the images that served the magistrate María Isabel Durantez Gil, a member of the progressive association Judges for Democracy and former director general of the Merchant Marine in the Ministry of Public Works during Zapatero's second term, to release Cándido Conde-Pumpido after being denounced for a gang rape that, According to the Brazilian complainant who offers prostitution services, it happened from 4 to 10 a.m. on November 3.
In other recordings, Aline can be seen in the bedroom dressed "in a sports shirt", as stated in the affidavit. It's 6:11. Aline goes from one place to another in the room. On the bed you can see a man's legs. Conde-Pumpido's face does not appear. At 6:21 a.m., Aline jumps and gestures to the camera. At 6:40 he laughs. Meanwhile, Aline drinks from a glass of wine while having a normal conversation with the accused.
The version he gave to the police is completely different. "While I was in the bedroom," the agents recount their words, "F. knocked on the door and while they were touching me all over my body the three of them told me that they wanted to have a party with me. They started touching my whole body, breasts and buttocks, while telling me how hot you are." An hour later, the recordings show a normal situation between the two. At 7:15 a.m. they talk. At the stroke of 9 o'clock they appear together in the kitchen, a while before Cándido Conde-Pumpido accompanied her to the door. M. gives the police the evidence that places him outside the house.
In her account of the events, Aline gives an account of the moment when she arrived at the lawyer's house on November 3. "When we arrived at the house, M. was inside," another of the friends who work for Conde-Pumpido, who did not arrive home until "later, around 4 in the morning." The first frame of the images from the security cameras to which this newspaper has had access shows, 56 minutes after midnight, Cándido Conde-Pumpido smoking a cigarette in the kitchen. Aline then appears, for the first time, dressed in a fur coat. He scolds the dog, who has left a droppings on the floor. He does not seem to have the attitude of someone who has witnessed three friends "in a festive atmosphere, consuming alcohol and drugs, and with intentions of having sexual relations; ignoring it [...] they stripped naked and began to touch each other's manhood."
Aline refers to the alleged rape in the complaint. "She ran out of the room," she told police, "at which point Candido chased her, 'grabbed me by the hair, put me in another room, threw me on another bed and then climbed up.'" Aline says Candide bit her neck and started "penetrating me very hard." The medical report signed at the Reina Sofía University Hospital describes injuries of a "minor" nature, "without evidence" of injuries to the "external genital organs".
In the statement to the police, he warned that he planned to return to Brazil on Wednesday. In addition, Aline has not appeared in court to give a statement.
