Judge María José Moreno Díaz, of the Court of Instruction 18 of Seville, has ordered the Police to locate Vito Quiles, press chief of the controversial Alvise Pérez

Few days ago, Judge María José Moreno Díaz, head of the Court of Instruction 18 of Seville, asked the Police to locate Vito Quiles, press officer of the controversial far-right agitator Alvise Pérez. Quiles, in addition, is a candidate on the party lists Se Acabó la Fiesta in the next European elections of 9J.

However, the initial request for "detention" mentioned in the order has caused confusion. Sources from the Superior Court of Justice of Andalusia have clarified that this is an error, and that the real objective is to find out his whereabouts to summon him as a defendant in a libel case.

The complaint for insults and slander against Quiles was admitted in October 2022

The spokesperson for the Facua consumer association, Rubén Sánchez, filed a complaint against Vito Quiles in October 2022. Quiles had made a series of serious accusations against Sánchez on social networks, including alleged extortion, scams and death threats. He also hinted at the existence of relations between Facua and plots of abused minors in Valencia and the Balearic Islands..

Furthermore, the court admitted the complaint to be processed, but has not been able to locate Quiles at the known addresses or contact him by telephone. Given this situation, the judge ordered the investigation of his whereabouts and sent the corresponding requests to the state security authorities.

The Association of Parliamentary Journalists rejects the presence of Quiles in Congress

This Wednesday, the Association of Parliamentary Journalists (APP) expressed its rejection of the presence of people linked to political parties working as journalists in Congress and the Senate. Quiles, being Alvise Pérez's press officer and electoral candidate, is at the center of this controversy.

For its part, The APP maintains that this situation is contrary to professional journalistic ethics, stating that working for a political party is incompatible with accreditation as a parliamentary journalist. The Federation of Associations of Journalists of Spain (FAPE) also joined this position, rejecting that people linked to parties work as journalists in the spaces intended for the exercise of the profession in the Congress of Deputies and the Senate.

In short, Vito Quiles' situation is complex and multifaceted, intertwining legal and ethical aspects that have generated a series of reactions in different sectors. The clarification of the Superior Court of Justice of Andalusia on the error in the arrest order and Quiles' continued quest to be summoned in the judicial process are crucial elements in the development of this case.
