The ruling states that the Iberdrola manager obtained the invoices, took them before a notary public, and kept them after leaving the company
Former commissioner José Manuel Villarejo appears in the parliamentary commission of the KitchenDaniel DuchPool case
The former director of Corporate Functions of Iberdrola, Antonio del Olmo, has been convicted by the Commercial Court number 1 of Bilbao for obtaining and disseminating company invoices that were key in the ‘Tandem’ case. In addition to returning the documents, del Olmo must publish the conviction sentence “with at least the same dissemination” as the revelation of the stolen papers had.
In the ruling, to which Europa Press has had access, the court considers it proven that del Olmo illegally obtained the copies and provided them to the media that later made the invoices public. “Because it has not been proven or has been provided any indication that others were in a position to do so,” justifies the letter.
The ruling states that the manager acknowledged having made copies of the invoices, in addition to having deposited them before a notary public in 2004. After your retirement, in 2016, he continued in possession of the copies.
The ruling also points out that del Olmo obtained these documents without the consent of the company, which was the owner of the secret. Thus, it is explained that “it was not in his functions to keep these copies in his office, nor was he authorized to deposit them before a notary or to remove them from the offices of the company for which he worked (at least these points have not been proven), therefore that illegally obtains secret business information “.
This, the document continues, is enough to “estimate the violation” of the former employee, who kept the invoices “for your safety” and took them before a notary, but never put them in the hands of the authorities “to discover any illegal activity.”
The company sued its former employee in 2020, accusing him of preparing and spreading a false report thanks to these invoices. Later the case went to the National Court.
In an order of July 9, the head of the Court of Instruction Number 6 of the National Court, Manuel García-Castellón, decided to file the complaint against Del Olmo without going into the merits of the matter, understanding that the facts denounced had already prescribed , collects Europa Press.
