La ley de transparencia tumba todas las peticiones sobre la fuga del Emérito

2021-02-08T11:00:45+01:00

El Confidencial | 07/02/2021 In Spanish- La marcha del rey emérito Juan Carlos I es un acontecimiento del que todavía se desconoce mucha información. Más allá de los detalles revelados en prensa y los dos comunicados publicados por la Casa Real, todavía quedan muchas preguntas por responder. Desde con qué fondos se sufragó el viaje del exmonarca a Emiratos Árabes hasta detalles clave como las reuniones que mantuvieron Moncloa y Zarzuela sobre el asunto. Este puzle solo podrá ser resuelto con transparencia y rendición de cuentas; pero desafortunadamente en este frente no hay avances porque, más allá de la normalizada opacidad institucional, la ley de transparencia está obstaculizando las peticiones de información.
