Josant is sentenced to six months in prison and a 1,400 euro fine for the protests against the Council of Ministers in Barcelona on 21 December


The trial against Josant had been postponed due to the effects of the pandemic and the Catalan Government eventually toned down the accusation by withdrawing the charges of public disturbance, thus matching the accusations of the Prosecutor’s Office. He was, therefore, accused of undermining the authorities and of attempted theft. They asked he be incarcerated for up to 2 years. Josant demonstrated in front of the Parliament building on 30 January, 2018, to support the investiture of Carles Puigdemont, though he was not identified on this day but during the protests organised by the CDR against the Council of Ministers held at the Llotja de Mar in Barcelona on 21 December, that is to say, after the events of 30 January. He was released on charges the day after 21 December.
