The Koldo plot negotiated the state rescue of Air Europa

Víctor de Aldama, one of the alleged ringleaders of the Koldo plot, has confessed to the National Fraud Investigation Office (ONIF) that he intervened in the negotiations with the Ministry of Transport, then directed by José Luis Ábalos, to obtain help state for Air Europa (Air Europa’s contracts with the commission agent come to light).

According to the information The Objective has had access to, Aldama presented the contracts and invoices that would demonstrate his participation in the negotiation. It should be remembered that the Globalia airline was the first to obtain the public injection from the SEPI. Furthermore, its rescue was the largest, amounting to 475 million euros, and the one with the best repayment conditions.

The aforementioned media has already revealed that Ábalos himself, who maintained a close relationship with both Juan José Hidalgo and Javier Hidalgo, mediated with the rest of the ministries to carry out a rescue that was key to the survival of Air Europa.

As published Preferentialthe injection of public money into Air Europa could have violated at least two of the requirements demanded by the Strategic Companies Solvency Aid Fund itself, managed by SEPI (The legality of the state bailout granted to Air Europa, in question) .

The reason, as revealed by The Objective, is that it was articulated through a financial company established a year before the Council of Ministers gave the green light to the aid. This is Air Europa Holding, SLU, a company that at the end of 2019 had no employees or income.

According to the aforementioned media, the Government made it a condition to benefit from this state aid that the requesting companies were not financial, but rather productive, and that they present the results of their last two years of activity to demonstrate that they were not in crisis before Covid. .
