In the communique released by Garzón yesterday in response to the sentence he vows to fight not just his own conviction by the effects that the sentence may have as jurisprudence:

Esta sentencia, sin razón jurídica para ello ni pruebas que la sustenten, elimina toda posibilidad para investigar la corrupción y sus delitos asociados abriendo espacios de impunidad y contribuye gravemente, en el afán de acabar con un concreto juez, a laminar la independencia de los jueces en España.

Acudiré a las vías legales que correspondan para combatir esta sentencia y ejerceré todas las acciones que sean pertinentes para tratar de paliar el perjuicio irreparable que los autores de esta sentencia han cometido.

This sentence, without legal reason for it or proof to support it, eliminates all possibility to investigate corruption and its associated crimes by opening spaces of impunity and seriously contributes, in striving to finish off a particular judge, to erode the independence of judges in Spain.

I will take the resort to the appropriate legal means to fight this sentence and I shall exert all pertinent actions to attempt to mitigate the irreparable damage that the authors of this sentence have committed.
