28A- The JEC authorizes Jordi Sànchez to participate in two telematic press conferences



In its resolution, the supervisory body indicates that the report of the General Secretariat of Penitentiary Institutions states that "there are no sufficient reasons that prevent authorizing" their participation in them.

Specifically, these are two events on April 18 in a cycle of press conferences organized by the Efe Agency and on the 21st at a press conference organized by the Catalan News Agency (ACN). Both events, scheduled for 11.30 am, would take place on a holiday as it was on Holy Thursday and on a Sunday, therefore without a day in the trial of the 'procés' in the Supreme Court.

In the report of Penitentiary Institutions it is indicated, in this sense, that the schedules and the dates chosen allow the use of the Videoconference Room although it clarifies that its use should not be prolonged beyond the 13:00 hours, which is when the food delivery.

In this line, the JEC urges the competent authority to arbitrate "the appropriate measures" so that these telematic communications are carried out and guarantee that they must end before 12.30.

The decision of the JEC comes after authorizing this Tuesday the head of the ERC list, Oriol Junqueras, so that he can participate via telematics in the round of speeches with the head of the list of candidates that attend the general elections that Organize the ACN.

In its resolution, which has had a particular vote, the JEC has agreed to allow Junqueras to participate in this act on the 19th, which is a holiday and there is no trial by the 'procés' in the Supreme Court, and which would not require a extensive technical deployment.
