The Central Operational Unit (UCO) of the Civil Guard has found no evidence of the crime of influence peddling reported by the Manos Médicas organization last April in relation to the work of Begoña Gómez, wife of the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, as reported this Tuesday by the newspaper ‘El País’.

In a report sent to Juan Carlos Peinado, the judge who opened proceedings as a result of the Manos Cleans complaint, the UCO explains that it does not appreciate that the wife of the head of the Executive had any influence in the rescue of the airline Air Europa nor in the competitions organized by for different training plans in new technologies.

Specifically, as analyzed by the Civil Guard, “there is no evidence” that the fact that Begoña Gómez coincided with Javier Hidalgo, one of the directors of Globalia (group that owns Air Europa), “could be linked to the decision rescue of Air Europa”, according to sources familiar with the case cited by the newspaper.

On the other hand, it examines that two of the grants from to Innova Next, owned by Juan Carlos Berrabés, professor of the master’s degree at the Complutense University that the president’s wife co-directed, had letters of recommendation from Gómez, but that said company had already received up to 28 contracts from the public administration over the last few years, one of them from the Madrid City Council under the PP government.

The report concludes that no links have been found between those people who signed the qualifications of the different offers and Begoña Gómez. Furthermore, the UCO maintains that “no evidence has been identified” of what the Manos Cleans complaint stated when maintaining that it was Barrabés who “set up the Master of Competitive Social Transformation” of Begoña Gómez.

Finally, the Armed Institute also observes that Gómez has not received any public subsidy, according to the National Subsidies Database.
