Lawyer involved with Manos Limpias and Noos trial to be investigated

SC
Virginia López Negrete.

THE Noos trial is taking an interesting turn as it appears that Virginia López Negrete, the lawyer who represented Manos Limpias (Clean Hands), in the prosecution of the Infanta Cristina (who had not been charged by the state) has herself been summoned to appear before a judge on September 27 as it is appears that she will be accused of belonging to a criminal organisation and extortion.

Manos Limpias is a union which supposedly acts to investigate and have prosecuted those who escape the state net but the president was arrested this year and accused in partnership with Ausbanc of approaching individuals offering to drop private prosecutions in exchange for financial inducements.

The team defending the Infanta has said that there was a similar approach to her which was rejected and this may well have resulted in the action against the prosecuting lawyer.

The trial itself ended in June and the judges are still considering their verdicts on all of those indicted of whom only the Infanta and one other are involved under the Manos Limpias private prosecutions and it may well be that if the charges against those involved with the union are found, then the private prosecutions may be rejected out of hand.
