The trial against the leaders of the Mossos for the events of 20 September and 1 October, suspended due to the coronavirus crisis, resumes


The Prosecutor’s Office presents its final conclusions, in which it downgrades the charges against the Mossos d’Esquadra police major, Josep Lluís Trapero; the former chief of the Mossos, Pere Soler; and the former secretary-general of Catalonia’s Ministry of the Interior, Cèsar Puig, from a crime of rebellion to a crime of sedition, which would lower their prison and disqualification terms from 11 to 10 years. Alternatively, it calls for a conviction for disobedience with a sentence of one year and eight months of disqualification for Trapero, Soler and Puig and a fine of 60,000 euros and a year of disqualification. In the case of Mossos lieutenant Teresa Laplana, the Prosecutor’s Office maintains the charge of sedition and continues to call for a four-year prison sentence and a 30,000 euro fine. On 17 June, the trial concludes.
