The Police seize Francisco Martnez in his house his messages with the dome of Interior about the ‘Operation Kitchen’
Kitchen judge imputes former interior number two, Francisco Martnez, for stealing information from Luis Brcenas
A judicial commission secretly interviewed the false priest who assaulted the home ofLuis Brcenasto try to prove if he was sent by the Ministry of the Interior under the presidency ofMariano Rajoy. The judge of the National CourtManuel Garca-Castelln, who instructs the so-called ‘Operation Kitchen’, went to the Aranjuez penitentiary center about a month ago in the company of the anti-corruption prosecutors in the case,Ignacio StampaandMiguel Serrano, to have a meeting withEnrique Olivares.
The assailant is serving a final sentence of the Supreme Court of 22 years in prison for the crimes of trespassing, kidnapping, threats, illegal possession of weapons and injuries derived from this episode, which took place in October 2013 and for which there are still numerous unknowns. Investigators from the Kitchen operation try to determine if the fake priest was part of the device allegedly designed by the Interior Ministry to steal documentation related to PP box B from Brcenas.
The appointment in the Aranjuez prison was also attended, as EL MUNDO has learned, a coroner from the National Court to examine the mental state of Olivares and study if he can give a statement in the judicial procedure investigating the espionage ordered by the Government of the PP against the former national treasurer of the party. Not surprisingly, the defense of Olivares already claimed during the trial the “psychic alteration” of his client seeking to be applied as a mitigating factor. However, the psychiatric reports established that the false priest’s capacities for understanding and abstraction were adequate and that he was “capable of distinguishing normally between the lawfulness and wrongfulness of a conduct.”
The para-police device dubbed ‘Kitchen’ by the police officers themselves had, among others, the theft of documentation from Brcenas, the assault on his wife’s restoration studio in which he kept sensitive information against the party, the conduct of follow-ups without judicial order to all the members of his family and even the cloning of his mobile phones with the messages that were exchanged with the former Prime Minister.
All this to try to take from the former treasurer the arsenal he had against the PP leadership in the middle of an open war with the conservative formation. Not in vain in the hands of Brcenas were at that time, for example, the famous sms that Rajoy sent him after discovering his hidden fortune in Switzerland in which he gave his support with the famous phrase of“Luis, be strong.”
Assessing your mental state
According to sources close to the meeting to this newspaper, the visit of the judicial commission lasted for approximately two hours in which they spoke with the false priest, on the one hand, the judge and the prosecutors; and, on the other hand, the coroner who came to assess his mental state and who has the mission of deciding whether he is in a position to give a statement before the Court of Instruction number 6 of the National Court.
The event took place, in the middle of ‘Operation Kitchen’, on October 23, 2013 at 5:19 p.m. Then, Enrique Olivares broke into the Madrid home of the Brcenas family, on Calle Prncipe de Vergara dressed in a priest’s cassock and said to the ex-treasurer’s wife,Rosala Iglesias,to go on behalf of the Bishopric of Madrid to process the release of her husband, who was at that time in provisional prison. After the assailant was received by the Brcenas family’s housekeeper, he entered the building, met with Brcenas’ wife and son.William, who was in the building. Then he pretended he was going to take a pill out of his briefcase, and he pulled a revolver and flanged maniat at all three.
Olivares revealed to them that his mission was to seize the documentation that the former popular manager had on a “pendrive” and that, as he always told them, would serve to overthrow the central government. To do this, he even went to the office of Luis Brcenas, an instant that Guillermo, the well-known leader of the musical group Taburete, took advantage of, to break free, pounce on the false priest and disarm him. Then the family asked the police for help, who came to the house just a quarter of an hour later.
“You give me the information that knocks down the Government”
As reflected in the police proceedings, when the false priest took out the revolver, he pointed at Rosala Igleisas and said to Guillermo: “Lie down on the ground or shoot your mother.” Afterwards, and after handcuffing the three tenants of the house with bridles, Olivares turned to Brcenas’ son and said to him: “Now you took me to your father’s office; or do you give me the information that will bring down the Government or I kill you. ” The assailant insisted on Guillermo once again: “Either you give me the information or I give your mother a butt and I put her to sleep.” At the same time, he went to the domestic worker and said: “You are from Santo Domingo, so you know what is going to happen here.” After reducing Guillermo Brcenas to the false priest, the assistant took the firearm and ran to the street to ask for help.
One of the most striking elements of this event is that, as the aforementioned proceedings reflect, the escort and driver of the Brcenas family suddenly appeared,Sergio Ros, who despite living outside Madrid, in the town of Valdemoro, and being free, was prowling around the area and climbed in record time to the house to reduce the assailant.
It should be remembered that Ros at that time had been recruited as a confidant by the National Police and was receiving a monthly salary out of the reserved funds from the State. Currently, the driver is charged in Kitchen. The escort was justified in his police statement saying that he was taking a walk with his wife on General Daz Porlier street, just behind Brcenas’ home, and that he was notified by phone by the custodian of a farm neighboring that of the former treasurer. The Police intervened to the false priest a revolver with a drum of 5 cartridges, 10 detonation cartridges of 8 millimeters, two steel balls and a neck strap.
Investigators suspect that this episode could be part of the police operation and trace whether any of the commanders involved in the operation, such as the commissionerJos Manuel Villarejo,Olivares was commissioned to enter Brcenas’ home to steal documentation. So far, the accused police officers who have been asked about this event during the investigation have denied having any connection with it.
As EL MUNDO revealed, among the last steps carried out by the instructor and Kitchen’s prosecutors before the state of alarm was decreed for the coronavirus -which has led to the paralysis of non-essential judicial activity- was the search of the address of former Secretary of State Francisco Martnez, currently charged in this proceeding. The Judicial Police seized half a dozen messages that Martnez exchanged with the former ministerJorge Fernndez Dazand with police officers under his command addressing Kitchen’s inquiries.
