The leader of the PP announces from the triune the appeal of his party against the pardons for his “democratic outrage”
“Why did you say that complying with the sentence of October 1 implied its full compliance, that it would put Puigdemont on the bench and punish the illegal referendum with jail? Either you are a liar or you take us Spaniards for fools. Or both things”. The leader of the PP, Pablo Casado, has harshly criticized the chief executive for “deserting the promise that gave him access to the position” and granting pardons to the independent leaders of the ‘procés’. A movement from which, in his opinion, Pedro Sánchez “will not emerge unscathed.” because it will be “his settlement as president and the epitaph of the constitutional PSOE.”
The conservative leader has announced from the rostrum that his party has already presented the appeal to obtain the annulment of this grace measure for the “democratic outrage” of the events that occurred in autumn 2017. Vox and Ciudadanos already did so last week, but the main opposition party had not yet taken that step until today. “We represent millions of Spaniards affected by their sovereignty, and thousands of Catalans who have seen their heritage, freedom, security and coexistence at school, work or public services attacked,” he asserted.
