The Constitutional Court warns Torra and Torrent of the possible consequences of disobedience on the part of the institutions


The Spanish government challenges the resolution passed by the Parliament on 26 September defending civil and institutional disobedience as a response to the Supreme Court’s ruling, and asks for the President of the Government of Catalonia, Quim Torra; the rest of the government; the President of the Parliament, Roger Torrent; and the rest of the Bureau to be warned of possible criminal consequences. Only two days later, and in the midst of a wave of protests against the ruling, the Constitutional Court accepts the challenge for consideration, suspends Parliament’s resolution and warns the Government and the Bureau of the criminal consequences of following it.
