  • The revelations of the summary The Civil Guard hunted down Ábalos as an "intermediary" in the plot just a month ago

  • 'Koldo Case' The investigation affirms that Koldo maintained "influence" with at least five charges of Óscar Puente

The PP demands an explanation about the meeting of Pedro Sánchez's wife, Begoña Gómez, with

Víctor Aldama

, one of the two main businessmen in the

Koldo case


And he does not rule out summoning her to the investigative commission that he has registered in the Senate.

But first he wants the President of the Government to appear.

Asked, in a press conference in Congress, about the possibility of summoning Gómez in the Upper House, Cuca Gamarra left the door open: "We will go to the end and there are many instruments that can be used."

"And today what we are waiting for are the explanations from the President of the Government," she added, both for this and for


's revelations about the case summary.

This Thursday,

El Confidencial

has revealed that the commissioner of the Ministry of Transport, Víctor de Aldama, and the CEO of



Javier Hidalgo

, met with Begoña Gómez in 2020 - in full operation of the mask sales plot - to search its support for businesses such as an app to buy medicines at home and a plan to convert abandoned towns into real estate complexes.

For Gamarra, the intervention of the president's wife in "meetings with commission agents and businessmen who have been favored by the Government's action" must be clarified.

"At the pace at which the headlines are going, the president can only last a short time without giving explanations," he ironically said.

"There is more and more data that points to it and points it out," he added, after elevating Koldo's plot to a "PSOE case."

So, is the PP going to accelerate Sánchez's appearance in the Senate?

Gamarra did not want to clarify it, because he prefers that the president give explanations motu proprio: "He should not appear because anyone demands it, but rather at his own will. He cannot hide for long," he said, before remembering that if he does not clarify it In a few days, he will have to do it in the control session with the Executive next Wednesday.

Sánchez "has not at any time denied that he knew" about the plot, said the general secretary of the PP and


number two .

"Sánchez knew it and Sánchez covered it up. He must clarify his participation in the plot," she insisted.

Asked about the information from EL MUNDO about how Koldo García boasted of having a meeting in Genoa on January 10 at 10:15 a.m., which the Civil Guard has not been able to "confirm" despite following him for 24 hours, Gamarra has pulled back: " On the 10th at 10 a.m. a plenary session was taking place in the Senate. You could see it with your own eyes. Tellado and the rest of the popular leadership were there. And I can assure you that we don't have twins."

"It seems indecent to me," he concluded, "that the PSOE is dedicating itself to asking for explanations for something that did not happen," but rather that "it appears in a summary after they were aware that they were being investigated" and that they were listening to their conversations.
