  • The judge ruled that there was no certainty about the cause of death nor proof of a criminal act having been committed

A court in Marbella has shelved the criminal proceedings that were opened following the death of teacher Pilar González, some two weeks after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine.

The Superior Court of Justice of Andalucía (TSJA) reports that the judge in the case considers that the committal of a criminal act has not been proved.

The decision to archive the criminal case was made after the court received the extended clinical autopsy report on the deceased in which specialists pointed to the possibility that the teacher’s death could have been produced by an adverse reaction to vaccine.

The order to file the case was issued this Monday (26 April), once it was found that the final autopsy report "did not attribute the death to a specific cause", although it did not rule out - in the words of the TSJA - that it was due to the administration of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

In fact, as SUR has confirmed, the definitive report not only does not rule out that possibility, but leans towards it and points directly to a condition recently described as VIPIT (vaccine-induced prothrombotic immune thrombocytopenia) discovered by a group of German haematologists who presented their findings on 19 March, just one day after Pilar's autopsy.

The TSJA said the expanded autopsy report contradicted the initial forensic conclusions, which had indicated that the cause of death was not related to the AstraZeneca vaccine.

As a result, the Marbella court has filed the criminal case that was initiated by the spouse of the deceased, concluding that the committal of a criminal act has not been proven.
