Nobody has referred to as me and I solely ask that the Party assist me at this second, with no matter system (if it can’t be the Congress, let it’s the Senate, the Madrid Assembly, and so forth.) I feel that I’ve solely been loyal and I’ve labored at monumental price employees.

The message shouldn’t be from “compadreo”, like those who have been exchanged with the president of the National Court, José Ramón Navarro, however Martínez didn’t hesitate to ask the president of the Government for assist to incorporate him in a 2019 electoral record, “in to the very best of your capability” and along with your “thanks” upfront.

“With the same old affection, loyalty and admiration, I ship you a hug and I stay at your disposal,” concludes Martínez, who indicators as Paco. However, he didn’t get a response from Mariano Rajoy, at the very least by means of which means or from that cellphone.

Chasing Teodoro García Egea

The cellphone of the previous Secretary of State for Security is filled with messages to completely different deputies of the Popular Party, together with the then Secretary General of the PP, Teodoro García Egea.

He displays better confidence than with Rajoy, and in addition a a lot greater stage of insistence. His first conversations, from 2017, cope with issues of the Popular Parliamentary Group, the place they’re colleagues. But already on the finish of 2018, the Kitchen case entered the scene. One of them is concerning the episode of the false priest who entered the Bárcenas’ home and tied up and gagged the lady and the household assistant. Until then, it had been investigated as an impartial matter, nevertheless it started to be associated to Interior. In a December 2018 dialog, Martínez gave Teodoro García Egea keys to reply questions concerning the matter:

“I do not know if tonight they’ll ask you concerning the fanciful story of the false priest who assaulted the Bárcenas home. It is clear that you just can’t enter into that however, simply in case it helps you, I’m sending you the next”, is the headline of the dialog, which continues with the doable solutions that the then common secretary of the PP may give:

“The details to which such info refers have been prosecuted by the Provincial Court of Madrid in a Judgment of April 21, 2014. In stated Judgment the details confirmed within the trial are collected and the one defendant for such details is sentenced to a sentence in jail for 22 years. The confirmed details have completely nothing to do with the revealed info they usually allude to the convicted individual as an individual who “suffers from a persona dysfunction with paranoid, narcissistic and delinquent traits.” the Provincial Court of Madrid was confirmed by the Supreme Court in a Judgment of October 22, 2014, which is already a remaining judgment that imposes a remaining sentence.” “There are, due to this fact, no different details than these declared confirmed within the Judgment confirmed by the Supreme Court. It is res judicata.” “Any different conjectures don’t deserve any remark.”

Teodoro García Egea’s response was “Thank you, chief”, though the reality is that the episode of the false priest has ended up being included within the Kitchen case and is a kind of that cornered Martínez and his former boss.

After this change of messages, there isn’t any additional contact till February 2019, when Martínez begins to be seen off the electoral lists.

On February 21, he asks for a dialog: “Do you’ve 5 minutes for me at present?”, he writes in a primary message. Shortly after he tells him that if García Egea needs, they’ll speak “all through the plenary session” however the WhatsApp message stays unanswered that approach, though it does appear that they spoke later, as a result of within the subsequent contact, the nonetheless Secretary of State He talks about what he instructed him in Congress.

On March 17, in a “congratulations” message for an act, Martínez wrote to him in a involved tone. The cause, his political future:

“Nothing is farther from my intention than to be annoying with” what about mine? with out having spoken to you earlier than. You know that I’ve been extraordinarily loyal and have had a troublesome duty at a troublesome time.”

There is not any reply that approach both. The following message is from Martínez once more, on March 25, 2019, the day he simply came upon, by means of the press, that he is not going to be on any record. His tone appears bitter:

“I’ve already learn the press. The reality is that I believed that I’d know your resolution in one other approach.”

That identical day, García Egea replies that they’ll see one another if they need, however from the sequence of messages it appears that evidently they by no means see one another. Martínez finally ends up writing concerning the injury suffered and assuring that he’s concerned “on this mess” for being loyal to the celebration of Jorge Fernández Díaz, and Mariano Rajoy:

As I instructed you, I can perceive it, however being left stranded and marked as corrupt by my very own does irreparable injury to me. There are choices that we might have talked about. I’m understanding, loyal and dedicated. That’s exactly why I acquired myself into this mess. For that and for NOTHING else. Out of loyalty to the celebration, to Jorge Fernández and to Rajoy. The identical one that will have the President and also you.

The final communication is March 30. The quantity two of the Interior writes to him once more to use, however it’s clear that with out hope:

I have already got little hope of talking with you or with somebody from the present administration group. You know that I’m glad with occurring the candidacy of the MADRID Assembly and when the storm passes, if you don’t rely on me, I’ll return to my occupation with out downside. I feel I’ve the best to not be marked and singled out, deserted by the celebration. I ALWAYS picked up the cellphone for EVERYONE, I ALWAYS returned all calls and I ALWAYS defended EVERYONE within the Sixth, within the SER, within the La 1 debates, and so forth. I used to be exactly within the SER when the information of the President’s grasp’s diploma got here out in El País and it was additionally I who spoke with the Rector of ICADE concerning the situation of the President’s validation, and so forth, and so forth.

“I feel I ask for little or no,” Francisco Martínez closes, earlier than sending him a “damage” hug.

The journey started within the desert, which might develop into extra suffocating on January 23, 2020, together with his accusation, and which now leaves him dealing with a trial during which he’s at stake for 15 years in jail for spying on Luis Bárcenas.
