1. Sánchez wants to be Suárez: he will sell the “usefulness” of the pardon as a “concord” mechanism for a new transition. The criterion of public utility, the argumentation of the years already spent in prison will be the basis of the argumentation of the nine pardons that the Council of Ministers will approve today. Pedro Sánchez confirmed it yesterday, and in the afternoon the texts passed the General Commission of Secretaries of State and Undersecretaries. Sánchez had been advancing the measure for weeks, giving it publicity, but without fully confirming it. Without even wanting to pronounce the word that will mark his presidency: pardons. Yesterday he retaliated, in an act to his measure in which he wanted to sell the decision as a transcendental act for “harmony” and “coexistence.” A new beginning that the Prime Minister wanted to justify in the spirit of the Transition to democracy after Franco.

2. The housing law proposes mandatory extensions of rents. Four months after the deadline that United We Can and the PSOE set to bring the new state housing law to Congress, the government coalition still has not reached an agreement, but they have already found a common point where they can begin to understand each other. Specifically, in the freezing of rental contracts in areas that are called ‘stressed’. A definition that is still open, but that initially would cover the districts of the big capitals where there has been a sharp growth in prices in recent years. According to the approach put on the table by the PSOE, in these areas the measure will not only lead to the freezing of prices, but also the contracts will be obligatorily extended while those areas remain under that name, according to sources from the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda. The proposed period, in principle, would be three years.

3. A divided TC debates the possible unconstitutionality of the first confinement of the alarm. The Plenary of the Constitutional Court deliberates this week the proposal to declare unconstitutional several precepts of the first decree of the state of alarm approved by the Government in March of last year. The magistrates face divided the presentation of Pedro González Trevijano who considers that the most serious of these measures, confinement, could not be framed within the legal umbrella of the alarm, since it only allows the restriction of rights and not their suppression, as was the case . Despite the fact that the majority of the TC is conservative, like the rapporteur, that does not mean that the presentation goes ahead and that all the judges of that sensitivity share the opinion of their colleague. If it receives the majority support of the Plenary, this week there could be a failure (the meeting runs from today until Thursday).

4. Catalonia ignored the Justice and missed exams in Spanish at the EBAU. The Catalan Selectivity, held between June 8 and 11, had to, by order of the Superior Court of Justice of Catalonia (TSJC), guarantee the right of students to examine themselves and have the statement of the tests in the language of their choice, of the three co-officials in the community (Catalan, Spanish or Aranese). According to several examinees, this was not the case. The students, who took the University Entrance Exams (PAU) in different courts, attest with their testimony that “the number of copies in Spanish continued to be insufficient in some cases”, which, according to what they point out, forced the teachers to go in search of copies to another classroom or photocopy the exam, thus delaying the delivery of the brochure to the examinees, “harming them compared to those who asked for the questionnaires in Catalan.”

5. The Peruvian Justice rejects the request for preventive detention against Keiko Fujimori. The Peruvian Justice yesterday rejected the request for preventive detention against the presidential candidate Keiko Fujimori for the ‘Lava Jato’ corruption case and the alleged contributions of the construction company Odebrecht to her presidential campaign. On June 11, the prosecutor of the special team ‘Lava Jato’, José Domingo Pérez, requested the preventive detention of Fujimori, considering that he had violated the terms of his probation. The Prosecutor’s Office also reproaches Fujimori for “failing to comply with the restriction of not communicating with witnesses, since it has been noted as a public and well-known fact that he is communicating with the witness Miguel Torres Morales.” For the judge who is directing the case, Víctor Zúñiga, Fujimori “did not comply with the rules that were imposed on him in April 2020,” but he sustains his decision that Prosecutor Pérez “did not make the formality of exhorting her to violate the rule. ».

6. ABC interviews the defender of the Spanish team Pau Torres: “I understand the disappointment, I see it even normal”. There is a certain nervousness in Las Rozas, you can feel it as soon as you enter the press center. Spain is playing it tomorrow against Slovakia and it is logical that the national team, after two serious disappointments, arouses doubts and even detachment, now open that debate because the fans are not quite enthusiastic and there is nothing more dangerous than this team derives in the most absolute indifference. The internationals, one after another, repeat that they are more united than ever, although there are also those who understand the malaise of the people. From Pau Torres (Villarreal, January 16, 1997) the word self-criticism comes out without being asked, but at the same time, while he celebrates that the card games have returned to concentration (pocha, poker …), he tries to infect their illusion, the illusion of a debutante.
