Liberum Lawyers Group Gets Covid Justice for Spanish Citizens

ER Editor: Many thanks to Dutch journalist Michel van der Kemp for putting this information together for Europe Reloaded.


The Spanish Judiciary consortium Liberum Association is fighting against the Corona restrictions in Spain.

The association is a legal force of lawyers consisting of the Asturias Collective Complaint, the Galicia Judicial Complaint and Cantabria Collective Complaint, founded in March 2021. They were “born with the purpose of restoring the rights and freedoms that have been usurped during the Covid-19 pandemic, and it does so with the aim of perpetuating its work for human rights.” The group shows a long list of achievements on its website, but like many other countries, the battles in the court room have not always been successful when it comes to Corona. One of the biggest successes of the group is that “the display of the COVID certificate does not apply to visits in hospitals and specialized social service centers, such as nursing homes” for the Aragon region.

In the interview below, one of the founders of the Liberum Association, lawyer Cristina Armas, is talking about her legal battles specifically in the Canary Islands. Armas specialises in civil law and has had her own law firm in Gran Canaria since 2003. She talks about her hate crime case against well-known radio host Federico Jiménez Losantos, who had called the unvaccinated “rats and cockroaches” that had to be “killed and exterminated.” Further, Armas discusses her filing of a complaint before the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, in the Netherlands. A complaint whose success she has her doubts about because the ICC is a “totally controlled court, manipulated and dependent on the same groups, the same elite that has created this pandemic.”

On April 22nd she also appeared before the Corona-Ausschuss with lawyers Dr. Reiner Fuellmich and Viviane Fischer.


“The most important thing has been the legal actions”

The lawyer from Gran Canaria Cristina Armas has filed a lawsuit against the Spanish president, the WHO and other international organizations before the International Criminal Court in The Hague in relation to the Corona measures. The Liberum lawyers’ collective, to which she belongs, has managed to get several measures lifted in Spain. Armas has also recently sued a well-known journalist who agitated against the unvaccinated. A conversation about the possibilities and limits of legal resistance.

Multipolar: Cristina Armas, you are a lawyer, also from the Liberum organization, which has attracted a lot of attention in the press in the last year, due to the lawsuits in the Covid-19 crisis. You recently filed a hate crime lawsuit against well-known journalist Federico Jiménez Losantos. Losantos, from the ‘esradio’ channel, said in one of his programs that people not vaccinated against Covid were “rats and cockroaches” that had to be “killed and exterminated”.

Cristina Armas: We filed a complaint. And the judge has now agreed that in reality we cannot talk about it because it is confidential, but since it has come out in several media outlets and it is already public, what the judge has agreed is to open an abbreviated procedure. That is, the judge considers that there is a crime and that there must be a trial. But there has been no trial and no sentence yet.

Multipolar: Do you think the case is going to be successful?

Cristina Armas: I think so.

Multipolar: How important is judicial action today in the Covid-19 crisis? A crisis where democracy and human rights are at great risk, if I understand correctly the content of your complaints.

Cristina Armas: I think it’s being key. At least everything that has been achieved in Spain has been thanks to legal actions, mainly to all the appeals that have been presented by the Liberum collective. We have always said that thanks to all the judicial fight that we have carried out, we are not like Germany, France, Switzerland or Austria have been. We have always been far ahead at the judicial level, compared to the rest of the countries of Europe.

Multipolar: You were one of the lawyers to found the Liberum organization. Can you describe how it was born?

Cristina Armas: Liberum arose as a result of the health dictatorship. A group of people, civil society, ordinary people, in disagreement with the situation in which we found ourselves immersed, was born in Asturias, land of the Reconquest, and for some reason, I have no doubt, the movement was reborn in the same area of ​​Spain. It is a very young, new group, because it emerged in March 2021. It is one year old. And it has arisen precisely for the defense of fundamental rights. That is the main objective of Liberum: the defense of fundamental rights in the context of the Covid-19 health crisis. We are more or less 9,000 members and Liberum has a team of about 60 lawyers.

Multipolar: Do you think that only through legal action can something be achieved in the crisis in terms of recovering fundamental rights?

Cristina Armas: I’m not saying that only through legal action. Also from “Canarias awake and united” we have carried out demonstrations, protests at the headquarters of the Superior Court of Justice of the Canary Islands, actions at the level of information about the misnamed vaccine, adverse effects, etc., everything adds up. But it is true that the most important, without a doubt, have been the legal actions.

Multipolar: One of its great successes apart from the lawsuit against the journalist is that the Covid passport was suspended in Aragon for entry to residences and hospitals.

Cristina Armas: As I said, Liberum has a legal team of lawyers. So we try to have the cases handled by lawyers who are in that region. I mainly carry the Canary Islands and the rest of my colleagues carry Aragón, Asturias, Galicia, Andalusia, Catalonia, &etc. I have not been the lawyer who has handled the appeal from Aragón, that has been handled by two colleagues from Liberum and the same with the rest of the communities. We have shared work. I deal mainly with the Canary Islands and, after, hate complaints.

Multipolar: And where there were no successes?

Cristina Armas: I think that at the level of fundamental rights and health measures, success has been practically in all of Spain. Because thanks to Liberum’s actions, the Covid certificate has been removed, school protocols have been removed, confinements for unvaccinated children in schools have been removed. On the subject of Aragon, the topic of school protocols and the topic of the certificate for residences and hospitals were won.

Multipolar: In Germany you don’t hear much about successful trials. On the website of a bar association it is said that they have 750 judicial decisions on the coronavirus and that around 90% of those cases were decided in favor of the government guidelines. In this context, Thomas-Michael Seibert, a retired judge, said in an interview for Multipolar: ‘in Germany the Judiciary is a pawn of power and we are evolving towards a police state in which a possible crime is already a reason for arrest’.

Cristina Armas: I see it exactly the same here. That is the problem right now, that the Judiciary has become a tool of political power, and the Judiciary is totally subject to the government. We have clearly seen it in Spain. Because we witnessed how the Superior Courts of Justice of the different Autonomous Communities were turning their criteria as a result of what the politicians were pressing. In other words, we started in August 2021 seeing how we earned the resources against the Covid certificate very easily. Even the Superior Court of Justice of Galicia and Andalusia came to dictate resolutions, where they recognized that the vaccinated and the non-vaccinated infect exactly the same. Therefore, there was no reason to require a certificate or a PCR, because the virus circulated the same in the population,

And the following month the Superior Court of Justice of Galicia itself issued a resolution totally opposite to the one it had previously issued. In that second resolution, it said that the unvaccinated are more contagious than the vaccinated and that yes, the certificate was necessary. So we have seen how as politicians have been putting pressure on the judges, they have been maintaining the restrictive measures of fundamental rights. Which means that the judiciary is just as politicized as in Germany. So, what did we do from Liberum to try to keep gaining resources? What we did was directly attack the judges. We began to present appeals – which in Spain is called a recusal appeal – and they were presented in several autonomous communities, in the Canary Islands, Asturias, the Balearic Islands and Catalonia. We filed an appeal against the magistrates themselves, justifying that those magistrates were not being impartial. And therefore they had to be removed from the procedure and appoint other magistrates who were impartial.

Multipolar: And was it successful?

Cristina Arms: Of course it was successful, but not entirely judicial. That is to say, we did not have absolute judicial success, because they are politicized. We had to attack the judges so that they, in turn, put pressure on the politicians, and these -the politicians- lifted the measures. This is how we have achieved the last victories of Liberum. In other words, the reason why the Canary Islands, Asturias, and the rest of the autonomous communities unilaterally withdrew the Covid certificate and practically the rest of the restrictions is because we were attacking the judges directly.

Multipolar: So, do you think we are in a situation facing the defeat of the democratic system?

Cristina Armas: I think that the democratic system has totally failed, but I thought that even before the pandemic. What happens is that the pandemic helped us to see all the failures of the system, the deep corruption of the system and how rotten everything is. We were able to see everything much more clearly. But the system has been like this for a long time. I also say that Spain has always been much better to get through what has been the crisis – “the plandemic” – than being in another European country.

Multipolar: Why?

Cristina Armas: Because we went very fast at the judicial level. We started from the beginning to give a lot of cane at the judicial level and groups like Liberum emerged, which have worked very well. That has been what has saved us in Spain: legal actions from the beginning. Having the ability to organize it at the level of citizens and lawyers, although we are still few, but enough to do a lot of damage. And right now we are a stone in the shoe for the government.

Multipolar: And the lawsuits against journalists who, for example, denounce, as in this case, critics of the vaccine. How important is this to you?

Cristina Armas: No, it is that the critics have already been denounced. We have really suffered for many months in Spain very serious attacks on the fundamental rights of people who have decided to be inoculated. That is, they have totally crossed the line of freedom of expression. Because they have not been articles, opinions regarding: this should be like this, I consider that the vaccine should be mandatory, I consider that the legal system should be changed. No. There have been very aggressive frontal attacks against the fundamental rights of those people who, precisely in the legitimate exercise of their right, have decided not to be inoculated. The reason does not matter, because it is part of the intimacy of each one. And then we have seen how they have not respected the right to freedom of these people. Newspapers, televisions, radios, newspapers, politicians did it. Ángel Víctor Torres, president of the Government of the Canary Islands, is also denounced for a hate crime.

Multipolar: On your part?

Cristina Armas: Initially by Liberum no. That was an initiative that I did in a private capacity. I made a complaint, I spread it on social networks so that any citizen could go to court and report it. And a lot of people denounced it. Later Liberum filed a “criminal complaint” for a hate crime against himself -the president of the Canary Islands- which is still under investigation.

Multipolar: Successful?

Cristina Armas: We are still there. We are still fighting.

Multipolar: Returning to the question of the responsibility of journalists. So journalists also had a very high responsibility for the defeat of the democratic system?

Cristina Armas:I think it has been a key piece: the complicity of the media, but from the beginning. At first, the media told you: this is a flu, there is no need to be alarmed, this is nothing. They laughed at the news that came from China, the news that came from Italy and everything, they took it as joke and joke. And suddenly, after 15 days, they regulated it and it was already a “single speech”: stay at home, we are all going to die, don’t go out, be a good citizen, comply with it. All the rules that the government tells you and have been a key tool in this whole farce. And then with the gene drug issue, the same. Instead of giving truthful information to citizens so that citizens could weigh up and make a correct decision,

Politicians, media, health and judiciary, these four pieces have been the key to sustaining all this. Because we must remember that we were practically kidnapped for three months, with a state of illegal alarm, which was declared unconstitutional a year and a half later. That this happens in a democratic state is unthinkable. It had to have been resolved within a maximum period of one week. You can’t illegally lock up and kidnap 47 million people for three months. What justice is that? What rule of law is that? They have ruined a country. There are so many people who have committed suicide. We are talking about physical, mental and economic damage that in many cases will be irreparable.

Multipolar: You also accused President Sánchez and the World Health Organization of genocide and crimes against humanity. How is the situation with this case now? Deputies or presidents have immunity, right?

Cristina Armas: In the International Criminal Court no. The complaint was directed against Pedro Sánchez, against Klaus Schwab, executive director of the World Economic Forum, against Bill and Melinda Gates, against the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security and against the director of the World Health OrganizationThe invisible heads of this entire pandemic, according to us. And right now the complaint is filed provisionally, waiting to be able to provide new facts and new evidence and to reactivate the procedure in the International Criminal Court. It is true that it was presented very soon, in May 2021, and we did not have even half of the information that we have now.

Multipolar: But what do you think, is it going to be successful?

Cristina Armas: I don’t know if it can be successful or not, considering that the International Criminal Court is a totally controlled court, manipulated and dependent on the same groups, the same elite that has created this pandemic. So it can hardly be successful. But that’s not why we’re going to stop fighting.

Multipolar: Cristina Armas, is your work dangerous?

Cristina Armas: I don’t consider it dangerous. It is true that many people ask me: hey, have they threatened you, have they done something to you? Have they given you a wake-up call from the Bar Association? Honestly, I haven’t had any problems yet.

Multipolar: In Germany many people are afraid to speak their minds.

Cristina Armas: Here too there has been a lot of fear. And it is true that at first I was also a little scared, I was the first lawyer to step forward. But that helped other colleagues to join later. When they saw that someone had perhaps the audacity or the courage to come forward publicly, they felt supported. And I appreciate it, that they have not left me alone in the face of danger. But it is true that at the beginning there was a lot of fear to give an opinion.

Multipolar: Can we recover our democracy only through lawsuits?

Cristina Armas: I think not. I believe that the system is so unfortunately rotten today that what is needed is the complete demolition of the system and the creation of a totally new system. Legal actions are not going to achieve the creation of a new system, a new world. Complete demolition is needed in all senses: political, judicial, scientific, health, medical, police, educational.

Multipolar: How could this demolition happen concretely?

Cristina Armas: The demolition of the old system will come when citizens do not turn out to vote, stop trusting politicians, official bodies, doctors, the pharmaceutical industry, exercise fiscal and civil disobedience. I imagine the new world without political parties, without supranational organizations, without a world elite that has enslaved the population, where citizens are free and sovereign, with a judicial system based on natural law, with a medicine based mainly on alternative therapies and natural, etc.

But the problem is that at the beginning of all this, many people thought that it was not going to affect them. I have many people close to me who, like me, have gone to demonstrations for a year and a half in defense of all this, against the loss of rights and freedoms, while many people were on the beach sunbathing, because they thought that this was not going with them [sic]. And they have not understood that it is-according to me-a global plan that is going to affect us all. Whether you are a taxi driver, farmer, doctor, lawyer or fisherman. The goal is: you will have nothing and you will be happy. The implementation of the 2030 Agenda.

Look, in just 24 hours society has gone from hating the unvaccinated to hating a Russian person for being Russian. Yesterday an article appeared in the World talking about Russian-phobia in Madrid. Empty Russian restaurants. Russian citizens who are being persecuted, harassed. A real barbarity. I mean, at what moment do you, in 24 hours, have the capacity to manipulate society in that way? That you hate today a person who is not vaccinated and tomorrow a person who has Russian nationality. Those of us who are not vaccinated have already ceased to be a danger to society. Now the danger is the Russians, but the day after tomorrow it may be the blacks or those over 60 years of age. They are absurd and ridiculous examples. But what I want to say is that this, sooner or later, is going to affect everyone; supply yourself with information that you do not receive through the mainstream media. I think that’s the key.”
