Scandal in Spain: contents of the official chat channel of the Spanish judges are known

Prof. Dr. Axel Schönberger

Sep 19, 2018 — 

The «Consejo Oficial del Poder Judicial» is a Spanish constitutional body responsible for the Spanish courts. In particular, it should guarantee the independence of Spanish judges.

As revealed on September 19, 2018, Spanish judges maligned catalan politicians on an official e-mail channel of this institution last year and wrote hateful e-mails about the leaders of the Catalan independence movement. The Spanish judges refer to the Catalan politicians as «viruses», «whoresons», «extremists» and «Nazis». All Spanish judges — including those who will judge the political prisoners — have access to this official e-mail channel on the server The Spanish judges exchange opinions, information and documents on this channel.

Two Catalan daily newspapers have published excerpts (in Spanish) from judges' e-mail correspondence since September 2017 until the refusal to extradite Catalan President Carles Puigdemont. It is a dirty scandal that is another huge stain on the Spanish judiciary, which is increasingly threatening to become a system of injustice. Various e-mails are extremely obnoxious and go under the belt. Judicial unbiasedness and impartial judgment in Spain? Empty words when it comes to the judges who participated in this correspondence or were attached to them and read them all.That such hate has been spread over an extended period of time through an official e-mail channel of the «Consejo Oficial del Poder Judicial» shows that the Spanish judiciary can not be trusted because their judges are obviously biased. They send each other hate-mails about persons of political life who would like to see them sentenced or convicted, even before the opening of corresponding processes.

An excerpt of this judicial e-mail correspondence can be read here:
