Deputy Sonia Sierra asks not to talk about 'political prisoners in the public media when they are prosecuted for rebellion, sedition and embezzlement'
"The Government of Spain must apply the constitution and defend citizens from the abuses of separatism." This has been said by the deputy of Citizens (Cs) in the Parliament, Nacho Martín Blanco, in the Commissioner D'Afers Institutional.
Martín Blanco, has defended a proposal that demanded the resignation of the president of the Parliament, Roger Torrent, "for putting the camera on the side of those who struck a blow to democracy" and for "not respecting the principle of political pluralism." The orange deputy has affirmed that the Catalans "we do not have to accept the patrimonialization of the institutions" and has denounced that the separatist parties "believe that Catalonia is theirs and use the Parlament as their farmhouse".
He also criticized that the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, continue accepting the 21 points "of the infamy of Torra where Spain is discredited" and has lamented that "democracy in Catalonia is beginning to have serious deficits". "We have the right to have a government of Spain that looks after the whole of all Spaniards and not just some Autonomous Communities," he has ruled.
Deputy Sonia Sierra, also on the commission, has asked that there be no talk of "political prisoners in the public media when they are prosecuted for rebellion, sedition and embezzlement," when defending a proposal about harassment of journalists. "The press is one of the basic pillars of democracy and journalists must be able to work without interference or political pressure," he said.
