Why are Catalan secessionists on trial?
“Today, I’ve received the fifth notification of the Constitutional Court”
(warning of the obligation to prevent the development of the independence resolution)
“We will continue going forward”
The Court considers that the suspension (of the Catalan parliament and government) sought several legitimate aims listed in Article 11, including:
- maintain public safety
- defend the order, and
- protect the rights and freedoms of others
