The deputy of Cs insists that 'to be President of the Generalitat you have to be a deputy of the Parliament'
“The parties that govern in Catalonia do not want to talk about corruption because they are involved, such as the PSOE and the PP”. This has been said by the deputy of Citizens (Cs), Nacho Martín Blanco, before the announcement next Tuesday of a monographic plenary session on corruption in the Parliament of Catalonia after a request for the orange formation. Martín Blanco has made these statements in front of the Palau de la Música Catalana, “emblematic place, unfortunately, of the corruption that has occurred in Catalonia” because “the 'Palau case' symbolizes the government that has been governing for more than 40 years in Catalonia, that of Convergence ”.
The orange deputy has recalled the latest cases of corruption in Catalonia such as the General Secretary of Sports of the Generalitat, Gerard Figueras, who "is being investigated, but remains in his position as if nothing happened"; that of the former Culture Councilor and current deputy in Congress, Laura Borràs, also investigated “for the adjustment of contracts” and, finally, that of the Catalan Ombudsman, Rafael Ribó, “who should be the defender of the people but is involved in the case of the 3% plot ”.
Martín Blanco also insisted that “to be President of the Generalitat, you must be a deputy of the Parliament” remembering that, despite being disabled, Quim Torra “intends to skip what the Supreme Court (TS) says, the High Court of Justice of Catalonia (TSJC) and the Central Electoral Board (JEC) ”.
Regarding the prison permits of prisoners convicted in the ‘procés’ trial, the orange deputy stressed that “they are politicians convicted of very serious crimes” who “show no regret at all since they have said they will do it again”. For this reason, he has said that since Cs they ask that “all convicted persons comply with the sentences equally” and has rejected the possible “privileges”.
