The Vice President of the Generalitat and Minister of Economy, Pere Aragonès, has told the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, that there are different "mechanisms" for the Executive to make a position towards imprisoned leaders, as it could be through the Legal Profession of the State.
"I ask the Government that, among all of us, we must resolve this issue and do our part." The Government is represented not only through the Prosecutor's Office, but also by State Advocacy. the procedure in favor of the prisoners to continue in prison, "he recalled in statements to the Cadena Ser.
Aragonès has suggested, in this sense, that "there are different mechanisms to make it clear that the commitment of the Government is on the line of going to normalize to the maximum."
While it has made it clear that the Government and the pro-independence forces "value" the "good words" of different ministers saying that "you do not agree" with the preventive detention, or also the "effort" of Pablo Iglesias and Podemos, has warned that "that must be translated into facts" and "put to work."
Asked then if he was suggesting that getting to work is for the Government to influence the Office of the Prosecutor, Aragonès has responded: "And in the General Attorney's Office, for example."
The Catalan vice president has acknowledged that "one thing is that the decision (final) is made by the judge, but the government is part of the procedure and, as a party, it can be put in. The judge will then decide what suits him."
On the other hand, on the ultimatum of the Catalan president, Quim Torra, to the government to negotiate a referendum before November, Aragonès has opined that "it is possible to continue the dialogue and establish a political negotiating table".
"Everyone knows that the Catalan question will not be solved by criminal means, this has to be resolved in a negotiated way, I am convinced that this is the only way forward, because in the end it will be independent Catalonia or not in ten years , whether or not we have a new Statute or the State of Autonomies is over, in the end the two societies will have to live together and, for that, we have to talk, negotiate and understand each other's positions, "he affirmed.
