Speaker of Catalan parliament walks free from Spanish jail after posting bail

Madrid / The speaker of Catalonia’s Parliament, who had presided over votes to allow a separatist referendum and the region’s declaration of independence from the rest of Spain, left jail on Friday after raising bail 150.000 euros as stipulated by a Supreme Court judge. 

Once the magistrate has ordered the release of Forcadell, an official of the administration of justice has already left for the prison of Alcalá Meco so that his exit becomes effective.

The magistrate of the Supreme Court, Pablo Llarena, has imposed, in addition, the obligation to deliver his passport to the Court, which has already done his lawyer, and the obligation to appear regularly before a court.

Forcadell and five other members of the  Catalan parliament declared yesterday before the Supreme Court as investigated for having facilitated the processing of the declaration of independence that was held on 27 October in the Catalan parliament.

All attributed to the declaration of independence of October 27 a symbolic value and complied with the measures of the central government to restore constitutional legality including the dismissal of the government of Catalonia, the dissolution of its parliament and the convening of regional elections.

The president of the Catalan parliament was the judge who imposed the highest bond and the only one who spent the night in jail.

The magistrate attributes to him a “main action” in the independence process, as much “for his medular intervention” in him as “for the intense repercussion that his own leadership had”.

Llarena recalls that Forcadell also occupied the presidency of the Catalan National Assembly, an organization that organized mobilizations in favor of the independence movement.
