The Sixth Examining Magistrate’s Court of Figueres decides to proceed with the case against the mayor of Figueres in connection with 1 October referendum


The Sixth Examining Magistrate’s Court of Figueres agrees to proceed with the case against Marta Felip, the mayor of the city, for an alleged crime of disobedience. The judge argues that Felip ‘actively’ participated in the referendum, enabling the use of 15 municipal facilities in full knowledge that the Constitutional Court had prohibited the the referendum. Felip had already appeared before the judge on 18 September 2018 under investigation for these actions. The case will move forward and Figueres Criminal Court number 2 sets the date for trial in February 2023 for a crime of disobedience.
