The Constitutional Court dismisses Josep Costa’s appeal for protection, filed after the acceptance of the complaint against the former members of the Bureau of Parliament


The Constitutional Court considers that the former vice-president of the Parliament of Catalonia, Josep Costa , did not have his rights violated, given that the facts included in the complaint filed by the Prosecutor’s Office against the former members of the Bureau (having processed parliamentary initiatives in which the right to self-determination was defended and the Spanish monarchy was rejected) are not protected by parliamentary inviolability. The Court also argues that his right to effective judicial protection has not been violated either. Magistrates Juan Antonio Xiol Ríos, María Luisa Balaguer Callejón and Ramon Sáez Valcárcel issue private votes.
