The leader of Vox Iván Espinosa de los Monteros has reacted this Monday to the information published exclusively by elDiario.es about the seizure of his salary in Congress by the Justice for not paying the debt for the works of his home. The far-right deputy has admitted the seizure order decreed by the court of first instance number 36 in Madrid, but has defended that if he has not yet paid the amount of the debt –63,183 euros, plus legal costs and interest on the late payment – it is because you do not know where you have to make it. “To abide by the sentence implies paying an amount. But to whom?” he assures.
The Supreme confirms the conviction of Iván Espinosa de los Monteros for not paying for the works of his chalet
In a long twitter thread, in which he begins by insulting elDiario.es for making this information public, the leader of Vox assures that on December 14 – the same day that this newspaper published that the Supreme Court confirmed his conviction and dismissed this As his last resort, he wanted to pay the debt and to do so he went to the Treasury and Social Security because the company to which he owes “closed” leaving “pufos unpaid; including the Treasury and Social Security”. The far-right deputy defends that if he has not yet paid it is because he has not received a response to this request.
Espinosa de los Monteros lies about what is the procedure to follow when paying a debt after a final court ruling, as is the case after the Supreme Court confirmed the conviction. According to legal sources explained to elDiario.es, the debt must be deposited in the Court’s consignment current account when it is unknown where to deposit what is owed. In this way, it will be the court who proceeds to make the payment to the debtor.
The leader of Vox ends his thread by acknowledging the embargo order but assures that he will appeal it because “it lacks a legal basis.” Espinosa de los Monteros has five days to do so. “The pending payment is guaranteed by my house. So logically, I will appeal it, ”he concludes.
It is not the first time that the Vox deputy has tried to avoid these payments. Espinosa de los Monteros already tried it when he contracted the works through a company in his name and then closed it by decreeing a creditor contest when the Justice sentenced him for the first time in 2016.
It was then that the injured company sued Espinosa de los Monteros directly, who was convicted of “creditor fraud.” The Justice decreed in 2018 that he should assume the debt as the sole administrator of the company (Pedro Heredia 6 SL) that was created exclusively to build the house.
