"This is not about ultimatum or coordination errors, but rather about public protection," said Deputy Carles Riera from Parliament, who also rejected the version of the councilor, who said that the pulse will not be shaken by expelling agents of the Mobile Brigade "that have been exceeded".

The PSC, in favor of the Mossos
Unlike the CUP, the leader of the PSC, Miquel Iceta, has censured Torra's statements and was unequivocally close to the police: "The Mossos deserve total trust," he underlined.
