The letter sent that has been detected to Torrejón de Ardoz (Madrid) destined for the director of the European Union Satellite Center is the only one that has not been triggered by the Tedax of the National Police, so the exhaustive analysis that the agents already realize could lead to who is behind this case that is being investigated as an alleged crime of terrorism in the National Court.
