An email proves that Koldo controlled the arrival of the masks that the Ábalos Ministry paid to the corrupt plot

And email intercepted by the agents of the Central Operational Unit (UCO) of the Civil Guard to the members of the plot evidence that Koldo Garcia Izaguirre, who was José Luis Ábalos’ bodyguard and advisor, controlled “the flight schedule” for the transportation of the masks that he had purchased Soluciones de Gestión y Apoyo de Empresas SL with funds from the Ministry of Transport, as specified by the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office in the complaint that the judge of the National Court agreed to investigate. Ismael Moreno.

The message was sent at 9:56 p.m. on April 13, 2020 by the owner of Zamora CF, Victor Gonzalo de Aldamawho is considered the “commission agent”, the alleged leader of the corrupt network Juan Carlos Cueto, the true owner of the firm Soluciones de Gestión, the “instrumental” company that was awarded contracts for the purchase of masks for a value that exceeds 53 million euros.

However, among the recipients was Koldo García Izaguirre, who had not officially participated in the awarding of this juicy contract that was awarded without a public tender. These contracts made it possible for De Aldama achieved a profit of 5.5 million, while Cueto made 9.5 million.

“Streamline procedures”

The inclusion of García Izaguirre as a recipient of the businessmen’s internal messages and his participation in discussions with the leader of the corrupt network in relation to tax crimes attributed to the network of companies that benefited from public payments, confirmed the investigators’ suspicions about Koldo’s involvement in the operation. In addition to Aldama, always according to Anticorruption, turned to García Izaguirre to “speed up procedures” in the Ministry of Transportation for the purchase of masks in China.

The first contract under suspicion took place on March 20, 2020 and the awarding body was Puertos del Estado, whose Governing Council included the Ábalos bodyguard. The second mask contract was agreed upon by ADIF, dependent on the Ministry of Transport. It so happens that Koldo was also a director of Renfe Mercancías. “From the Ministry of the Interior it was learned that Fomento [Transportes] had managed to access a purchasing and supply line“, which was also chosen by the Department headed by Minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska.

1.5 million euros

And the person who provides the Management Solutions company with information about the healthcare adjudication processes is, again, Koldo García Izaguirre, whose increase in assets “does not correspond to the income from his official activities. Between the years 2020 and 2022, the former Ábalos guard became the owner of movable and immovable property worth more than 1.5 million euros.

In this period, the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office highlights the increase in García Izaguirre’s cash income, who reduces the money they take out of their bank accounts: “Which denotes the possible existence of another financial source of unknown origin,” points out the Public Ministry.
