Voting on the amnesty law for Catalan separatists in…

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez wants the controversial law to be passed through the House of Representatives with separatist votes. This should guarantee impunity for all persons tried by the judiciary in the context of the attempted secession of the Mediterranean region.

Today, Tuesday, representatives in the Spanish Parliament will vote on the amnesty law for Catalan separatists, which was planned by the left-wing central government. The Socialist Party, led by Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, wants to push the controversial project through the House of Representatives with separatist votes. The bill must then be approved by the Senate before it can be finalized. There have recently been several marches against the project.

Background: Sánchez lost the election on July 23 to conservative opposition leader Alberto Núñez Viejo. But that failed due to the formation of the government. After losing votes, especially by junior left coalition partner Soumare, the head of government is now also relying on the seven deputies from the Catalan separatist Gantz party for re-election. This is still being led indirectly by former Catalan Prime Minister Carles Puigdemont, who fled Spanish justice to Belgium as a result of the illegal independence referendum in October 2017, and has been a member of the European Union Parliament since then.

In order to agree on a new version of the progressive minority government led by Sánchez, Puigdemont's Juntas party and the leftist separatists Esquerra Repubblicana, which rules Catalonia, demanded an amnesty for all people who were or are still being persecuted by the judiciary during their rule. – Attempt to secede in the Mediterranean region. Conservative and right-wing opposition parties, as well as parts of the judiciary, accuse Sanchez of relentlessly seeking power and abandoning the rule of law. (Abba)
