Borràs will not order the withdrawal of ties, but does not rule out that officials do

The still consellera of Culture, Laura Borràs, has assured this Friday that will not order to remove ties after the requirement of the "Central Inquisitorial Meeting", but has indicated that probably it will not be necessary that the Mossos act because perhaps the own officials will retire them.

The JEC has agreed to take the Catalan president, Quim Torra, to the Public Prosecutor's Office for the criminal responsibility that could have been incurred by maintaining the independence symbols in the public buildings of the Generalitat and has ordered the Mossos d'Esquadra to remove them before 3:00 p.m. this Friday.

In an interview with Cadena Ser Catalunya, Borràs assured that he sees Torra "determined" and recalled that he assumed the position of president of the Generalitat with "full assumption of the consequences" in a situation that he believes is "repression" .

After the ties have already disappeared from the headquarters of the Department of Economy, Borràs has not wanted to venture what will happen in other buildings of the Generalitat, but has assured that in those who are of his competence will not give the order to remove ties .

"I have not given the order nor am I going to give it," remarked the councilor, who has nevertheless stressed that it is the officials who placed those symbols and those who could also remove them to avoid intervention by the Mossos.

"The other day we saw that public workers, who had placed the ties, they put the censored bond (the white with the red stripe), we were violent to use the police against the institutions, we do not feel comfortable and perhaps we will not have to see these images -of Mossos acting-, "he said.

Borràs, in any case, has expressed his disagreement with the JEC, which he has branded as "Central Inquisitorial Board".

The councilor, who will leave this position on Sunday to be JxCat candidate to the generals, has not wanted to disclose the name of her substitute in the Govern, waiting for the Catalan president to communicate, without confirming if the chosen one is, as pointed out by some media, Mariàngela Vilallonga, professor of Latin philology at the University of Girona and vice-president of the Institute of Catalan Studies (IEC).
