New sentence of fifteen months of disqualification and fine to Torra for disobedience

Quim Torra has been sentenced again to a sentence of 15 months of disqualification and a fine of 24,000 euros for not hanging a banner in favor of the freedom of the prisoners of the procés in September 2019 when he was president of the Generalitat.

The criminal court 6 of Barcelona has issued the conviction against the former president, considering it proven that he disobeyed the order of the TSJC that ordered him to take down the canvas following a lawsuit by Impulso Ciudadano, an entity led by a former deputy of Ciutadans al consider that it violated the neutrality of public buildings. The defendant did not comply with the requirement (of the TSJC) within the granted period of 48 hours” confirming that “the permanence of the banner on the facade of the Palau” four days later, states the sentence.

This is the second conviction against Quim Torra who had to resign as president of the Generalitat after the TSJC sentenced him to 18 months of disqualification for not removing another banner placed on the facade of the Palau de la Generalitat within the period stipulated. election in april 2019

The trial against him was held on March 17, which was marked by the absence of the president - he had the right to do so since the sentence they were asking for him was less than two years in prison - who did not announce his resignation to appear so as not to legitimize a process that it considers unfair.

In addition, the resolution is also based on what was dictated by the Supreme Court that ratified the first sentence against Torra. "The buildings of the bodies of the public administration of Catalonia must be at the service of general interests, not of a more or less specific or numerous group of citizens, to the exclusion of the rest", he stressed.

Torra extinguished the disqualification time of his first sentence a few days ago. And precisely this Wednesday, the Constitutional Court has dismissed the appeal that he presented so that said disqualification was not executed.

In a statement, the former president explained that his defense will present the corresponding appeals against a sentence that, in his opinion, "was already handed down before the case began." "It is a sentence induced by the desire for revenge of the judges who act as the political arm of Spain in Catalonia," says Torra, for whom the sentence "can only serve as one more lesson that in Spain we have nothing to do."

For this reason, he considers that "there are no possible dialogue tables if there is no recognition of the democratic will expressed in the referendum on October 1 and that no stability can be given to those who have been spying on you and continue to persecute independentistas for the fact of be." However, the former president sees "it is necessary to resume the initiative". "We will go to Europe to defend my case", says Torra, who stresses that "the important thing is to get back on track towards independence", which he sees as "more urgent than ever" and "the only way".
