The president of Cs says that 'the heroes and the brave are those who have defended the unity of Spain and have been harassed for carrying their flag in Catalonia'
"With the ruling of the Supreme Court on the 'procés' Justice has been done and now I ask Sánchez to guarantee that there will be no privileges for the imprisoned politicians," said the president of Citizens (Cs), Albert Rivera, who stressed also that “if we are equal before the law, those who have tried to destroy our countries must comply until the last day of punishment”
Rivera, at a press conference in Congress, said that the High Court ruling "is bad news for those who thought they would have impunity." The leader of the liberal formation has also asked the head of the Executive in charge "an urgent state meeting to guarantee full compliance with the sentences, as well as freedom, security and coexistence in Catalonia." "It's time to get back together and for Sánchez to realize that you can't sit with those who want to heat the street," he said.
In this sense, the leader of Cs has affirmed that "the heroes and the brave" of the sentence of the process "are those who have defended the unity of Spain and have been harassed for carrying their flag in Catalonia." Thus, Rivera has thanked them "for their patience and for defending democracy," and stressed that "today the good guys have won and those who wanted to break our passports, families and living together have lost."
"Being Spanish is also that the Government defends your rights and freedoms anywhere in Spain," said Rivera, who has lamented that after the sentence "they have seen again stations and roads cut and people who are harassed without anyone protect. "
