The parliamentary immunity waiver process begins in Ponsatí’s case as well


During the plenary session of the European Parliament, it is announced that Pablo Llarena, the investigating judge in the case against the leaders of the 1 October referendum, has requested a waiver of Clara Ponsatí’s immunity, and the corresponding process begins in the Legal Affairs Committee. The Commission assigns the same rapporteur assigned to draft the reports on Puigdemont and Comín’s cases: far-right Bulgarian MEP Angel Dzhambazki, in the same group as VOX, even though the another MEP should take the case according to the rules of procedure. Weeks later, the immunity waiver process will be paused due to the measures against the coronavirus. The rules of procedure state that the process must be held behind closed doors and confidentially, and there are doubts that this can be done electronically.
