The former director general of the Police between 2011 and 2016, Ignacio Cosidó, has ceased to be an advisor to the Junta de Castilla y León “at his own request”, according to an agreement signed by the president, Alfonso Fernández Mañueco, in which he thanks him for the services provided and which has been published in the Bocyl this Monday. Cosidó, a native of Salamanca and a resident of Palencia, joined the regional government in 2019, and became the highest paid advisor, with an annual salary of 55,120.54 euros.
Of his controversial signing, it was only known that he advised on “depopulation” but not when and how he was going to work, since he was not even seen in the office assigned to him in the Presidency complex. At the time, from the PP they explained the accommodation of Cosidó in the Board for having lost the possibility of being a senator by autonomous designation, a position with which Javier Maroto was satisfied, who lost his deputy seat for Álava. The appointment of Cosidó has become a throwing weapon, and much more after the Deputy Director of Police Operations during the espionage of Luis Bárcenas with reserved funds, Eugenio Pino, declared before the judge of the Kitchen case, Manuel García Castellón, that Cosidó “knew everything” about the operation.
Cosidó is also remembered for having boasted of a pact that allowed the General Council of the Judiciary to be controlled “from the back door.”
