The PP, in a text signed by its president, Pablo Casado, and its parliamentary spokesmen, Cayetana Álvarez de Toledo, Javier Maroto and Dolors Montserrat, emphasizes that Spanish democracy enjoys such a high quality as the French, explains the details of the trial to the procés leaders and outlines a comparison with the Corsica region.
In the first place, the 'popular' formation has shown its "indignation" for the "accusations so serious and unfounded" that the French parliamentarians made. On September 1, 52 deputies of the National Assembly, including the leader of La France Insoumise, Jean-Luc Mélenchon, and the leader of the Union des Décracrates et Progressistes Indépendants, Jean-Christophe Lagarde, criticized "the repression of the elect Catalans "in Spain and called for" the appeasement of tensions and the end of arbitrary measures affecting elected representatives of universal suffrage. "
"But, above all, we want to point out that the independence leaders have not been judged by their opinions, but because they have attacked our fundamental laws, violating the rights and freedoms of millions of Spaniards, and above all the citizens of Catalonia," the PP in the gallery published in 'Le Monde'.
The formation of Pablo Casado recalls that the Supreme Court does not judge the political debate on independence, "a debate that can also be conducted freely in our country," insists the PP, and insists that the trial focuses on the breaking of the laws and the Spanish Constitution.
COMPARISON WITH CORSICA
"The Prosecutor of the Supreme Court of Spain has concluded that the defendants committed a crime of rebellion and requested significant prison sentences, because it has been shown that violence was used in the context of a planned and organized strategy to fracture our constitutional order, including the holding of an illegal referendum and a unilateral declaration of independence by the Catalan autonomous authorities, "continues the letter of the 'popular'.
Finally, the PP proposes to the French leaders to imagine an assumption in which the Corsican nationalists organized from the institutions an illegal referendum on the independence of the island and proclaimed secession unilaterally, "breaking the Constitution, and in particular its article first on the "Republic indivisible".
According to Casado's formation, in that case the French courts and all institutions "would undoubtedly react with the same firmness in defense of their democratic rules, their Constitution and the unity of France." "If this happened, we would be without hesitation on the side of France, to defend its democracy, its Constitution and its unity, with the same conviction with which we are currently defending Spanish democracy, our Constitution and the unity of our country," they defend. the 66 deputies, 70 senators and 12 euro MPs.
