The government of Catalonia denounces the Civil Guard for questioning high-ranking officials


The Civil Guard had questioned them in relation to the organisation of the referendum. The government of Catalonia denounces them, among other reasons, for having indicated in the summonses and in the police reports that were carried out as part of the case in the Examining Magistrate’s Court no. 13, a fact that the court later denied. On 31 July, the lawyer’s collective Drets also filed a complaint against the Civil Guard for this reason and for how the interrogations were conducted. According to the lawyers group Drets, the Magistrate’s Court no. 13 could be secretly investigating the preparation of the referendum or the Civil Guard would be acting without judicial coverage. The government of Catalonia’s complaint and denunciation were referred to Examining Magistrate’s Court no. 32, which deemed them inadmissible because it does not consider the deeds to be criminal. Drets appeals the inadmissibility to the Provincial Court.
