Title: Catalan Politicians on Trial

Motion Text:

That the Parliament notes with grave concern the legal proceedings that are commencing on 12 February 2019 in the Supreme Court in Madrid of the Catalan political pro-independence leaders and civic leaders who stand trial for organising and holding an independence referendum across Catalonia in 2017; understands  that 12 people will face trial accused of rebellion and sedition for their role and could face up to 25 years in prison; considers that the future of Catalonia is one that must be democratically taken by the people of Catalonia and their elected representatives, and not by the imprisonment of those elected representatives in order, it believes, to suppress Catalonia’s right to self-determination.
