The case against five pro-independence demonstrators from Tarragona for the protests against the 2018 Council of Ministers is brought to a close


The Prosecutor’s Office had asked for the provisional dismissal of the case against the five Tarragona citizens who had demonstrated on 21 December against the holding of the Council of Ministers in Catalonia. In his submission, the prosecutor claimed that one of the people under investigation did indeed coordinate the demonstration that passed through the centre of Tarragona, leading to the roadblock of the T-11 and the A-27, but believed that the events that led to the opening of the proceedings ‘do not constitute any form of infringement.’ Initially, CUP MP Laia Estrada was also included in the list of accused in this case, but due to her parliamentary privilege, the case was taken over by the High Court of Justice of Catalonia, which in turn ordered it to be closed on 9 July.
