Chirón and the refusal to collaborate with the Congress of Deputies

From the Quirón Group they have decided not to collaborate with the commission of the Congress of Deputies that requested documentation about her relationship with Alberto González Amador, partner of Isabel Díaz Ayuso. In a letter addressed to Parliament, Quirón is protected by the right to privacy and the protection of personal data to not send the required documents.

González Amador, accused of tax fraud and falsification of documents, maintains commercial ties with Quirón, main winner of health contracts in the Community of Madrid. Despite the seriousness of the accusations and its involvement in questionable commercial operations, the Quirón Group argues that the disclosure of the requested information would violate fundamental rights.

The implications of the González Amador case in the Community of Madrid

Within the framework of the investigation on the acquisition of medical supplies, Congress had requested all labor contracts from Chirón, commercial and commercial activities related to Alberto González Amador. However, Quirón has chosen not to provide said documentation, hiding behind data protection legislation and the right to privacy.

The congressional commission seeks to clarify the use of public funds during the pandemic, particularly in the purchase of masks. González Amador pocketed a million-dollar commission for his intermediation in the purchase and sale of said material, an operation in which Fernando Camino, president of Quirón Prevention, also participated. This business relationship has raised suspicions about possible conflicts of interest and corruption.

Legal arguments and Chiron's defense before Congress

The Quirón Group has based its refusal on a series of legal arguments, citating article 18 of the Spanish Constitution and labor and commercial regulations. According to Quirón, providing the requested information would affect the fundamental rights of the people involved, including business secrecy and data protection.

Furthermore, Quirón maintains that the information requested is not directly related to the purpose of the investigation commission. The company has also highlighted that the Cortes Generales have no jurisdiction to control regional or municipal administrations, limiting its scope of action to the National Government.

In response to another request from Congress, Quirón has provided a table with information about its contracts with the Community of Madrid, the Madrid Assembly and city councils of the region. However, the company insists that this information is public and accessible through the corresponding administrations, questioning the relevance of Congress' request.

At the Quirón Group, he has adopted a firm stance in defense of data protection and privacy, refusing to collaborate with the Congressional commission in the case of Alberto González Amador. This decision has generated controversy and raises questions about transparency and the management of public resources in the Community of Madrid.
