Yesterday, the new PP Prime Minister Rajoy closed the office of “attention to victims of the Civil war and the dictatorship.”
This action, taken as part of a reorganization of the Ministry of Justice by the Spanish Government, gets rid of the public body which was created in 2009 by the Socialist government of José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero. Its aim had been to provide advice to victims of the Franco regime, on issues such as the mass graves.
Now, the functions of this former office will supposedly be “diluted” into another pre-existing section of the Justice department.
