“The Criminal Chamber of the National High Court has confirmed the criteria of the Central Court of Instruction number 1 of the National High Court of Spain, completely rejecting the appeal filed by the Public Prosecutor’s Office, fully confirming the dismissal of Humberto Moreira Valdés, resolution firm for which there is no recourse whatsoever, “the statement said.
Moreira Valdés expressed his satisfaction with the resolution for this recognition, said, his innocence and “regretted the enormous suffering that his wife, children and relatives have suffered because of the accusations of those who, for years, have not ceased their efforts tie him to events of all kinds. “
