In press statements, the Galician leader regretted that the Government attacked the division of powers, coexistence and judicial independence.
Especially after this Friday, two of Sánchez’s partner parties—the PNV and Junts, to which Carles Puigdemont belongs—registered in the Congress of Deputies their request to create investigative commissions to address the so-called Operation Catalonia and the participation of National Intelligence Center (CNI) on the jihadist attacks in Las Ramblas. “They attack the independence of the judges,” said the PP leader.
