New Spanish Interior Minister forced an Australian journalist to turn off the camera when asked about tortures

As former Interior Minister, Vice-President, Speaker and what else, Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba has resigned in order to dedicate his efforts to the task of leading the electoral campaign for next year's elections, a new Minister has been appointed: Antonio Camacho Vizcaíno, who was until yesterday State Secretary of Security, the right hand job in the Ministry in charge of police, prisons and every other aspect of internal security.

As State Secretary of Security he was interviewed on occasion, in this case by David O'Shea, who had prepared the interview in depth (video in Spanish with English subtitles):

Too much depth, too much data, too much truth for the new Minister it seems. His democratic style vanished quickly when faced with all that.

But as the Spaniards say: quien calla otorga (who remains silent concedes), the refusal of the Spanish authorities to discuss the most serious crime of tortures under state custody is acknowledgment, confirmation. 

Not that I needed it but maybe you did...
