Again, the Spanish Supreme Court, Jordi Turull, the Catalan presidential candidate, and four other Catalan independence politicians, who were charged with Friday morning with rebellion and mismanagement of public funds, have put pre-trial detention on top of the Spanish Supreme Court.
The defendants Carme Forcadell, the former Catalan parliamentary chairman, former Catalan foreign affairs adviser Raul Romeva, Josep Rull, former Counselor for Territorial Affairs, and former Labor Counselor Dolors Bassa, are transferred to the designated prisons.
Judge Pablo Llarena granted the prosecutor’s request for a lawsuit requesting, inter alia, the imposition of a pre-trial detention on grounds of escape and concealment. In particular, Marta Rovira, secretary-general of the Party of Independence of the Republic of Catalonia (ERC), did not appear on the court Friday, but said in a letter that he had left the country.
Politicians have to comply with the unconstitutionality of a referendum on independence of independence, which was held unconstitutional on 1 October last year, and the adoption of the Catalan Declaration of Independence.
Jordi Turul said on Thursday afternoon his presidential program speech in the Catalan parliament, but he did not get the support of the absolute majority in the first vote, so the legislature was again convened on Saturday to hold the second round of voting.
However, according to an earlier statement by the Spanish Constitutional Court, in order to be president, his personal presence is indispensable in the parliamentary vote on him.
The politician postponed a Twitter message following the court’s decision to justify his “imprisonment” of the allegiance of the electorate to the Catalan president, government and parliament.
“Please turn our energy to peacefully protect democracy and the dignity of Catalonia. I have every confidence and hope in the people of Catalonia,” he said.
On Friday night, in downtown Barcelona, a protest began against a court decision.
