Cospedal’s Police Adviser Paid With Reserved Funds For The Espionage Of Bárcenas When He Was a High-ranking Official In Castilla-La Mancha

Commissioner Andrés Gómez Gordo participated in the distribution of funds reserved for the espionage operation to Luis Bárcenas when he was the head of the escort for María Dolores de Cospedal and the man for everything of the then president of Castilla-La Mancha.

This is stated in a UDEF report contributed to the summary of the Bárcenas case, to which has had access, which points out that, together with Commissioner José Manuel Villarejo, now in prison, Gómez Gordo “paid” Sergio Ríos Esgueva, driver from the Bárcenas family, “an amount of 53,266.22 euros” with “origin in reserved funds”. The receipts of these payments appear in the summary, to which has had access and can be consulted here.


Ríos Esgueva is one of the protagonists of the “para-police operation” investigated in Operation Kitchen, a compendium of extra-police maneuvers to try to prevent the PP treasurer from putting his revelations to the government party on the ropes with his revelations. It was the mole that the political brigade, a group of agents who worked outside the body and without a police mandate following orders to weaken the political rivals of the PP or defend the party from its corruption, infiltrated the Bárcenas’ home to steal documents and provide information on family movements.

In exchange, he received the aforementioned 53,266.22 euros between July 2013 and September 2015. After receiving monthly payments of 2,000 euros for almost two years, an inordinate amount for a confidant, he joined the Police at the age of 42, at the end of the mission, also as part of the payment for having acted as a mole.

Gómez Gordo worked for years outside the Police always at the service of the PP and, especially, of María Dolores de Cospedal while she was president of Castilla-La Mancha. He had an office a few meters from the then Castilian-La Mancha president who placed him as a senior position in the regional administration: general director of documentation and analysis of the Government of Castilla-La Mancha.

He returned to the Police to manage the relationship with Bárcenas’ driver, whom he knew for having worked alongside him for the vice president of the Community of Madrid, Francisco Granados, -the leader who gives its name to the Punic operation, another great summary of corruption- and six months after returning he was awarded a pensioned medal.

Another of those investigated in Operation Kitchen, Enrique García Castaño, has pointed out to the judge as the author of the PISA report with which Jorge Fernández Díaz’s Ministry of the Interior wanted to falsely accuse Podemos of illegal financing. A statement without signature or letterhead that was aired by the conservative press and that never had any tour in court.

The UDEF report in the case of Box B gives Gómez Gordo a relevant role in the plot and ensures that, together with Ríos Esgueva, he stole “sensitive information” that was in the possession of the former treasurer through an external hard drive. prevent it from being disseminated to third parties and that “it could be incorporated into the judicial procedure” of box B “becoming new evidence that could help support or expand” the investigation. Her boss in Castilla-La Mancha, María Dolores de Cospedal, is one step away from being charged, after Anticorruption pointed out her as one of the participants, together with the then Minister of the Interior, Jorge Fernández Díaz, in Operation Kitchen, which now inquires about all those tricks of the political police to try to exonerate the PP in the case of box B.
