The two reporters were identified by a police officer when they were trying to verify the evidence about an alleged illegal work in the residence where González Amador and the Madrid leader live.

Two months later, the City Council declared that document ineffective, a resolution that appears in Conex. Since there is no subsequent license in that database, this newspaper tried to verify if the reform was carried out without permission.

To verify this hypothesis, this newspaper requested on Thursday for transparency from the Madrid City Council “all licenses and responsible declarations, as well as possible initiations, resolutions and sanctioning files opened at the address” where González Amador and the president reside.

They spoke to several neighbors who left the building between 7:00 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. When they were about to leave the area, a man in his 50s, dressed in civilian clothes, approached the two journalists and identified himself as a national police officer, showing a badge. In a cordial conversation, he asked them to identify themselves and they gave them their professional credentials and ID. The agent retreated a few meters towards a vehicle and took note of the personal information. Two men also in civilian clothes who did not identify themselves observed the scene a few meters away. After this, the agent returned with the documentation and the two reporters left.
