The State Attorney has withdrawn as an accusation of separate piece 17 of Tndem, where Iberdrola’s orders to retired commissioner Jos Manuel Villarejo are investigated, due to “the lack of active legitimacy regarding the crimes” provisionally charged.
In a letter, the State attorney Rosa Mara Seoane asks the head of the Central Court of Instruction Number 6, Manuel Garca-Castelln, to “consider them as separate” from the case.
All this, that is, “without prejudice to the fact that if in the course of the investigation a damage to the State Administration was noticed, for this reason” their “legitimacy as injured parties and the appropriate offer of actions could be appreciated.”
The State Attorney makes this decision every time “after analyzing the actions and the facts that are the object of the investigation” in this piece, regarding the orders that the Iberdrola Group will have carried out to Villarejo when he was on active duty in the National Police Corps.
These facts, the letter recalls, may constitute a continuing crime of active bribery, against privacy and a continuing crime of falsification of a commercial document committed by an individual.

This piece started in October 2019 after the judge of the National Court Manuel Garca-Castelln received an Internal Affairs official document prepared from the documentation seized in the records. In it, it was already highlighted that in 2004 the electric company contracted with Cenyt -Villarejo’s company- through the director of Security, the also accused Antonio Asenjo, the Arrow project, which had the objective of overcoming the obstacles to the construction and commissioning of a combined cycle power plant in Arcos de la Frontera (Cdiz).
For this project, which lasted until 2006, the commissioner – still active – accessed traffic of calls from those investigated and the reports that reached Iberdrola were confidential.
Last July, the magistrate of the National High Court decided to suspend the statement as a defendant both by the president of the electricity company Jos Ignacio Snchez Galn and the rest of the executives pending a decision on the appeal for annulment that they presented from the company.
A month later, in August, García-Castelln rejected the aforementioned appeal for annulment, seeing no reasons to do so. However, there is still no date for Sánchez Galón’s statement before the judge.
