We wonder if Sassoli has received a call from Sanchez to act in this way so abrupt and surprising".

Junqueras was elected mep in the elections of 26 may. However, the Supreme Court did not allow the leader of ERC to leave the jail to pick up his act euro mp. Instead, the Supreme court introduced a preliminary reference before the CJEU to be the european judges who indicate how they had to behave in this case. The Court of Luxembourg ruled that the leader of ERC should have been released and that it enjoyed immunity when he was proclaimed member of the european parliament a day after the end of the trial of the procés; then came the judgment of the Supreme that disqualified the leader of the republicans.
