Postponed the trial of Jové, Salvadó and Garriga so that it does not coincide with the electoral campaign

The TSJC refuses to annul it due to the amnesty law because it has not yet been approved

The Superior Court of Justice of Catalonia (TSJC) has decided to postpone the trial of the Minister of Culture, Natàlia Garriga; the leader of ERC in the Parliament and ex-secretary general of the Vice-presidency of the Generalitat, Josep Maria Jové, and the ex-secretary of the Treasury, Lluís Salvadó, for alleged disobedience in the preparations for October 1 to prevent it from coinciding with the Catalan electoral campaign for the 12M.

The trial was scheduled for April 10 and until May 29, so it would have overlapped with the electoral campaign and the Parliamentary elections, and in an order consulted by Europa Press this Thursday the court ordered the hearing to be rescheduled and set new day and time for its start.

The three defenses and the three accusations (Prosecutor's Office, State Attorney's Office and Vox) that are part of the case have agreed on the convenience of avoiding the trial coinciding with the electoral campaign.

Furthermore, the defenses of Salvadó and Garriga asked to suspend the trial due to the processing of the amnesty law, a request that Jové signed and which was opposed by the public accusations of the Prosecutor's Office and the State Attorney's Office and the popular accusation by Vox.

The TSJC has ruled it out because it considers that the processing of the amnesty law "cannot be taken, today, as a certain fact with the capacity to interfere or alter the course of the oral trial already convened", something that it does believe, however. what would happen if it were approved and published.

Before the electoral call, Jové asked to change the date of the trial because four days coincided with plenary sessions of the Parliament, where he is a deputy, but the court rejected it and reminded him that the Chamber's regulations provide that deputies can delegate the vote in cases justified.

On the other hand, the electoral call in Catalonia "is a true and verifiable fact", and the court also takes into account that Jové and Garriga belong to ERC, which will run in the elections, and Vox will also intervene in the trial as an accusation, who also attends the elections.

The court sees it necessary to "avoid reciprocal interference between the democratic electoral process and the necessary calm that must preside over the holding of the oral trial", as shared by all the parties involved.

DISOBEDIENCE, PREVARICATION AND EMBERSPALATION

In this case, Garriga faces the Prosecutor's request for one year of disqualification for alleged disobedience, while the prosecutor demands seven years in prison for Jové and six years and three months for Salvadó.

To the two of them, the prosecutor attributes the alleged crimes of disobedience - just like the councilor - in addition to alleged prevarication and aggravated embezzlement.

The prosecutor also claims to disqualify Jové, 32 years old, and Salvadó, 27 years and three months, and fine them 30,000 and 24,000 euros respectively, while requesting a fine of 18,000 euros for Garriga, who was then director of services for the Department headed by Oriol Junqueras. .
