The General Council of the Judiciary has decided to suspend Judge Rafael Lis from his duties for six months, when he considers that he committed a "very serious" offense in the processing of a case in which he had an "indirect interest.

Lis's wife, Margarita Alejo Hervás, was at that time a lawyer for Juan Francisco Rosa, and the case that the judge was instructing was being used by Rosa and other defendants in the Union case to try to stop that procedure.

As the Prosecutor's Office warned at the time, Rafael Lis turned that case ito an advantage to the Union.
