The agreement presented yesterday announces an amnesty law… and the revision of the amnesty law, to benefit those who are left out – predictably, due to the judges – from the first round of application of the norm. This is clear from the 12 lines dedicated to the grace measure signed by PSOE and Junts, which anticipates future “legislative reforms.” The provisional nature of the bill that will be presented next week is the main novelty of the agreement.
The instrument to indicate the causes whose inclusion in the amnesty could be forced later will be “commissions of investigation”, which will investigate the lawfarethat is, in the alleged judicial war that the State would have waged against the process and his or her environment. According to negotiation sources, the deputies will be able to indicate in their conclusions which causes fit into that category of lawfare and propose its inclusion in the amnesty, reforming the rule to bind the courts.
The sentence of the agreement that reflects this is the following: «The conclusions of the investigation commissions that will be established in the next legislature will be taken into account in the application of the amnesty law to the extent that situations included in the concept could arise. lawfare or judicialization of politics, with the consequences that, where appropriate, may give rise to liability actions or legislative modifications.
In the absence of clarifications from the signatory parties, everything indicates that this is the path chosen so that cases such as that of Puigdemont’s lawyer, Gonzalo Boye, opened for laundering drug trafficking funds, end up being archived. The same could happen with another issue so relevant to Junts and apparently far from the process -giving public contracts to his close friend- like the one that has ended with four and a half years in prison for the president of the Junts formation, Laura Borrás. If necessary, subsequent revisions of the law could insist on the filing of terrorism accusations against Carles Puigdemont and Marta Rovira in the caso Tsunami. The ex himself elaborated on this president. He affirmed yesterday that the agreed law has “a shared will [se entiende que con el PSOE] “not to leave out anyone who has been persecuted in any way, criminal, administrative, economic, for the mere contribution to the independence process.”
Regarding the text’s reference to the “responsibility actions” that could be launched, Puigdemont’s words shed some light. The escapee explained that it is expected that “the victims of the dirty war” can be compensated. Known victims, according to the former presidentand others to be uncovered in the investigative commissions created “to know the truth.”
