Pardon – regulated by a law of 1870 and fully topical about the prisoners of the procés– It is a prerogative of the Government, which can forgive all or part of the sentence to those convicted without even having to give reasons for their decision. However, the procedure does require the ruling of the sentencing court, which in turn has to request another report from the Prosecutor’s Office. These are mandatory reports that are not binding, but that usually guide the final decision of the Executive. Although this has not always been the case.
The Supreme Court opposes the pardon of those convicted of the process due to their lack of “repentance”
