The political prisoners of the 1 October demand the recusal of the judge of the Constitutional Court Antonio Narváez in the case of the appeals for protection against the 1 October sentence


The prisoners argue that Narváez lacks impartiality to resolve the appeals for protection based on the magistrate’s value judgements during the conference entitled ‘The Catalan problem, a constitutional perspective’ held in Granada in 2017. Narváez compared the organisation of the 1 October referendum to ‘a covert coup that is more serious than the 1981 coup d’état attempt.’ The Prosecutor’s Office and the State’s Attorney Office have opposed the prisoners’ request.
