The Catalan Association of Víctimes d Organitzacions Terroristes (Acvot) has pointed out directly in the National court, the president of the Generalitat, Quim Torra, by supporting members of the Committees for the Defense of the Republic (CDR) alleged crimes of terrorism. In an appeal lodged in the Criminal section against the release under bond of Alexis Codina, one of the detainees, the collective has targeted the head of the regional government by "support institutionally" support to the investigation, "leading in many cases to actions that may be constitutive of unlawful acts".
In recent weeks, the National court has released on bail five of the seven CDR imprisoned. In the resolution on Codina, the Second Section of the Criminal Chamber reaches even to question that the investigated to integrate a terrorist group —although it does not exonerate them from criminal responsibility—. A point that also disagree with the Acvot: "it was a highly organized group", with “division of roles" and hierarchy, and with a "clear interest to attempt" against installations of the Security forces, among others.Updated Date: 30 December 2019, 20:00
