The National High Court confirms the prosecution of Gonzalo Boye


The magistrate of the National High Court María Tardón dismisses the appeal presented by the lawyer of Puigdemont, Comín, Ponsatí and Puig in the case against the 1 October referendum, and confirms that she will be prosecuting the alleged crimes of money laundering attributed to a criminal drug-trafficking organisation led by the lawyer’s client Sito Miñanco, as well as the ongoing forgery of official documents. The court argues that there are indications of Boye’s alleged involvement in the manipulation of contracts to recover 889,620 euros seized by the police at Barajas Airport in Madrid. In December of that same year, Boye’s defence claims that the statements made in court by José Luis Correa Hincapié prove that the money seized in Barajas belongs to businessman Manuel González Rubio and not to his client Sito Miñanco. In November 2022, the National High Court commences trial stage of proceedings for the crimes of money laundering and documentary forgery.
