In further testimony, Mann claimed that Spain and South Africa, with the endorsement of the South African president, Thabo Mbeki, had supported the plot. By January 2004, two months before the attempted coup was put into action, it was, Mann said, "like an official operation. The governments of Spain and South Africa were giving the green light: 'You've got to go, you've got to do it.'"

Spain, he said, was prepared to recognise the new government the day after the coup and to send in large numbers of military police. Outside the court, the Spanish ambassador, Javier Sangro, said he had no comment.
