Political prisoners for the 1 October referendum submit a recusal against Manuel Marchena


Jordi Cuixart, Oriol Junqueras, Raül Romeva, Jordi Turull, Josep Rull and Jordi Sànchez ask to issue a recusal against Manuel Marchena after the leak of a WhatsApp message in which the spokesman for the PP in the Senate, Ignacio Cosidó, boasted about how the appointment of Marchena as president of the CGPJ and the Supreme Court would allow them to take control of the Trial Chamber in the 1 October case. On 5 December, the Supreme Court’s Special Chamber, responsible for hearing recusals, chaired by the president of the court Carlos Lesmes, dismisses the recusals.
