The Constitutional Court dismisses the appeal for protection presented by former minister Carles Mundó against the sentence of the Catalan independence process


The former minister’s appeal argued that the Supreme Court had violated his presumption of innocence. The Constitutional Court dismisses the appeal because it considers that Mundó was aware of its resolutions on the unconstitutionality of any claim made by the Catalan Parliament in favour of a Catalan constituent process. Mundó was sentenced to one year in prison, eight months of disqualification and a fine of 60,000 euros for a crime of disobedience. He spent 33 days in prison. Mundó decides not to appeal the sentence at the ECHR.
