The eight activists summoned in Lleida for protesting against Puigdemont’s arrest have adhered to their right to remain silent


On 25 March, a rally was held outside the sub-delegation of the Spanish government in Lleida in protest against the arrest of President Puigdemont in Germany. As a result, the Mossos d’Esquadra summoned eight people related to the CDRs in Lleida to testify with only two days’ notice, one of which was the rapper Pablo Hasél. The police report charges them with crimes of public disturbance but the defence lawyer maintains that they had been summoned because they ‘appeared in the photographs of the local press and had been identified.’ All of them are released after testifying.
