The Minister of the Interior in particular dismissed Friday with immediate effect, a lieutenant-colonel, liaison officer of the Civil Guard at the staff of the armies.
Vaccinated against the Covid when they were not a priority, the military and Spanish politicians find themselves at the heart of a controversy which notably led to the dismissal on Friday of a high-ranking officer.
Other staff members have received a dose of the vaccine and further layoffs may be decided, Defense Minister Margarita Robles warned on Friday, saying she was awaiting a report.
In addition to the military, politicians from different parties received the first dose of the vaccine, without belonging to a priority group either. One of them, the regional health adviser of Murcia in the south-east of the country, Manuel Villegas, was forced to resign.
A similar controversy is agitating Austria, where the authorities announced on Tuesday that they would be carrying out the investigation after press reports on mayors, nuns or even relatives of caregivers who received a Covid vaccine without being a priority.
