The Constitutional Court again urges the Prosecutor’s Office to investigate the Bureau of Parliament for having disobeyed it


The Constitutional Court overturns the Bureau’s 29 October 2019 decision to allow a resolution presented by the CUP reaffirming Parliament’s commitment to the right to self-determination. Furthermore, it asks the Prosecutor’s Office to investigate the president of the Bureau of Parliament, Roger Torrent (ERC); and the members of the Bureau, Josep Costa (JxCat), Eusebi Campdepadrós (JxCat) and Adriana Delgado (ERC) for having allowed the vote on this resolution on 12 November even though it had been suspended by the Constitutional Court. In September 2022, the Constitutional Court upholds the amparo appeal submitted by Ciudadanos against the decisions and considers that the rights to access on equal terms to public
office, in accordance with the requirements determined by law and the right to participate in public affairs, through representatives. The Constitutional Court further overturns the decisions and acts of Parliament from 7, 8 and 12 November 2019. Judges Antonio Xiol Ríos and Ramon Sáez Valcárcel issue dissenting votes.
