Spain’s Guardia Civil rules out crime by President Sanchez’s wife

Madrid, May 21 (Prensa Latina) The Central Operative Unit (UCO) of the Civil Guard of Spain on Tuesday ruled out alleged evidence of a crime committed by Begoña Gomez, President Pedro Sanchez's wife.

Accused of being “corrupt” by Argentine President Javier Milei at a far-right conference held in Madrid on Sunday, UCO’s conclusion added fuel to the fire of the diplomatic conflict unleashed by the visitor. UCO sees no evidence of a crime in Begoña Gomez’s actions; it finds no allegation of influence peddling and concludes that she has not received any public subsidy, the institution assured.

A few hours earlier, the Argentine president confirmed that he would not apologize to Sanchez and, on the contrary, stressed in an interview that “Pedro Sanchez is a coward who hides under women’s skirts.”

Amid a diplomatic crisis on Monday, Sanchez stressed that “Spain and Argentina are two brotherly countries whose peoples love and respect each other.”

“Among governments, affection is free, but respect is inalienable,” said Sanchez, who insisted on a public apology from Milei for his statements over the weekend.
