The Supreme Court has decided to reject all the appeals filed against the pardons of the independence leaders convicted by the Catalan procés. The judges have estimated the allegations of the State Attorney and understand that no appellant was entitled to question the grace measure: neither representatives of PP, Vox and Ciudadanos nor an association or Catalan Civic Coexistence.

In a statement, the Supreme Court explains that the contentious chamber has today studied these allegations from the State Attorney's Office and has decided, by majority, to agree with him and understand that none of the appellants had legal authorization to appeal the pardons. "The Chamber has decided by majority to uphold the aforementioned previous allegations in relation to the lack of active legitimacy in each and every one of the appeals filed," the statement explains.
