The Prosecutor’s Office opposes a flexible penitentiary regime for the pro-independence leaders


Lledoners prison approves the application of the flexible penitentiary regime, provided for in Article 100.2 of the Penitentiary Regulations, to Jordi Sànchez and Jordi Cuixart. The rest of the prisoners in the 1 October case (Junqueras, Romeva, Bassa, Turull, Forn, Rull and Forcadell) will also be approved for this flexible regime in the following weeks. Article 100.2 of the Penitentiary Regulations allows prisoners to go out to work and volunteer while still classified in the second-degree regime (an intermediate category between stricter and looser penitenciary regimes). The Prosecutor’s Office will file an appeal against these decisions, which will be confirmed by the corresponding Penitenciary Supervision Courts. In the case of Forcadell, the relevant court suggests that parties appealing its decision will do so before the Supreme Court, as the court that sentenced Forcadell, rather than the Provincial Court, which heard the other cases. The Prosecutor’s Office chooses to ask the Supreme Court to rule on the matter.
