The court gives the entity a week to provide the documentation to the parties before deciding whether to suspend the hearing
The Provincial Court was forced this Monday to postpone for the third time the trial that it planned to hold against the former leadership of the College of Nursing for the alleged misappropriation of nearly 468,000 euros. The hearing against the former president of the institution, Diego Gutiérrez; and the director of Communication, Jesús Cobarro, had to be suspended because the documentation that the court requested from the entity was incomplete. In addition, as explained by Judge Juan Del Olmo, a large part of the records are illegible.
Given this situation, the president of the court asked the Association for “maximum collaboration” so that, throughout this week, they provide the defenses and the court with the necessary documentation. After that period, and depending on the steps taken by the entity, the Court will decide if it is possible to continue with the trial with the intention of finishing it before July 15 or if its suspension is necessary.
The Prosecutor’s Office claims for each of them a sentence of four years in prison, fines and the obligation to compensate the College in the amount that they allegedly appropriated. The Public Ministry considers them alleged perpetrators of a continuing crime of misappropriation. The Chamber agreed a few months ago to file the charges that also weighed on the former treasurer of the College since he is affected by a serious illness.
The two defendants must sit in the dock for the alleged looting of the institution’s funds during at least the years 2009 and 2010. The prosecutor, in his brief with provisional conclusions, ensures that the defendants “devised a way to take advantage economically for the benefit own money from the contributions of all the members who had placed their trust in the proper administration of it. The defenses, in the processing of preliminary questions, alleged the violation of the rights of the defendants given the inadmissibility of the complaint and the lack of an effective judicial investigation.
