  18. Normalmente, cuando intuyo que voy a tener una mala experiencia con la persona que tengo delante, no hay feeling, intento no implicarme justamente para no llevarme ese mal sabor de boca, por lo que recuerdos malos de sesiones en TFCD tengo sobre todo cuando intento probar alguna técnica y no funciona, cuando llego a casa y veo que no he conseguido lo que quería.

  19. Delante del ministerio me volvió a preguntar cómo funcionaba, y después de la reunión me devolvió el reloj diciendo que tenía que llevarlo al técnico y ahí se hicieron los CD con esta conversación”. Grabar a tu primer ministro es grave, pero en el caso de Juncker, peor porque la ley luxemburguesa establece que, además, es el responsable de la tutela del servicio secreto. Cuando Juncker se enteró que había sido grabado mantuvo al director en su puesto y no le expedientó para proteger la credibilidad del SREL ante los servicios extranjeros”, según ha explicado al primer ministro en su comparecencia ante la comisión de investigación.
