Marlaska, in August 2018.

The National Court dismissed the Colonel’s appeal and he turned to the Fourth Division of the Disputes-Administrative Chamber of the Supreme Court, which upheld the decision of the Special Court. The content of this judgment will be known in the next few days, the press service of the Supreme Court reported.

Sánchez-Corbi’s dismissal caused controversy because he was the head of an elite unit of the Guardia Civil, in charge during the investigation of related corruption cases such as Punica or Lezo. Perceived loss of confidence within.

In the week before his dismissal, Corby ordered the suspension of any UCO activities that required spending from the “Spending Reserve Funds” item in protest of the appropriations in this regard. Insiders claimed that he took the decision without the consent of his superiors and jeopardized ongoing operations, which the colonel’s forces have always denied.

Sánchez Corbi claimed in a memo, the content of which was disclosed by Vozpopuli, that he was suspending the UCO for not approving the latest monthly allocation of funds set by the Home Office. It was the first months of the PSOE rule and the ministry had claimed that it wanted to revise the eligibility criteria for this money held during the PP, but the delay in doing so before the release of the latest item created consternation among the police. and security investigations. Units, citizens.

An influential colonel in the corps, he was a key player in operations against ETA, holding various positions in the Civil Guard Information Service (SIGC), including the person in charge of the armed organization’s investigation into French crimes.

Two years after Diego Pérez de los Cobos became head of the Madrid command, the Guardia Civil took the Sánchez-Corbi case as an example of its dismissal. This was exacerbated by the underground conflict between part of the corps dome and the Grande-Marlasca Ministry. The conflict began shortly after the PSOE came to power, when the Socialists decided to appoint a party-affiliated police commissioner in charge of the Security Secretary of the Office of Research and Coordination, a key post in the PSOE’s operations. A ministry that has been occupied by a member of the Civil Guard for decades.

Pérez de los Cobos was fired for failing to inform the government about the progress of the investigation into the 8-M feminist demonstration and the spread of Covid, which was blamed on a government official in Madrid. Pérez de los Cobos filed an appeal for lack of intent to dismiss, and the National High Court dismissed the appeal, pending a decision by the Supreme Court.
