The High Court of Justice of Catalonia sends MP Torrent and three former members of the Parliament Bureau to trial for disobedience


The magistrate of the High Court of Justice of Catalonia Maria Eugènia Alegret agrees that there are reasons to try for crimes of disobedience the former President of the Parliament and current Minister of Business, Roger Torrent, and the pro-independence former members of the Bureau, Josep Costa, Eusebi Campdepadrós and Adriana Delgado Herreros, for having allowed, in 2019, two votes to be held in the plenary session of parliament advocating the right to self-determination and rejecting the Monarchy. The accused appealed Alegret’s decision, but both the Civil and Criminal Chambers of the Court dismissed the appeals in March 2022.
