The Constitutional Court rejects JxCat’s appeal against Llarena’s decision to prevent Jordi Sànchez from going to Parliament to be invested as president of the Government of Catalonia


The Constitutional Court finally rejects the appeal that Carles Puigdemont and the other JxCat members of Parliament had presented against the refusal of Pablo Llarena, the investigating judge in the case against the leaders of the 1 October referendum, to allow Jordi Sànchez to attend the March 2018 plenary session of Parliament that was scheduled to vote on his investiture, thus preventing him from becoming president. The decision comes almost two years later, with Sànchez already convicted by the Supreme Court and despite the fact that the appeal had initially been accepted for consideration, meaning that it could not be raised before the ECHR.
