The National High Court recognises the non-existence of terrorism in the cases of Tamara and Adrià Carrasco


The National High Courtexamining judge in the case of Tamara and Adrià Carrasco, recognises the non-existence of any fact constituting a crime of terrorism, sedition or rebellion and refers their case to the Catalan Examining Magistrate’s courts, which are competent to instruct a case for an alleged crime of public disturbance. However, Tamara’s ban on leaving her municipality, which has been in force since 12 April, is maintained. An examining magistrate’s court in Barcelona and another in Gavà do not agree on the jurisdiction to judge the case, since neither of them is considered, and finally the court in Barcelona raises a negative question of jurisdiction before the Provincial Court of Barcelona. Until the competent court for the case is decided, Carrasco cannot request these precautionary measures to be lifted, so she is obliged to remain in her municipality. The case of Adrià Carrasco, exiled in Belgium since the attempted arrest on the same day as Tamara Carrasco, is referred to the Granollers court.
