The judge of national audience Carmen Lamea sent m to prison for pushing process of rupture with state, which culminated unilateral Declaration of Independence (DUI) of September 27.
In his first statement to lame, former advisers merely answered questions of ir lawyers and denied that y had promoted acts of force to achieve secession. Junqueras, for example, appealed to his Catholic status as a guarantee of non-violence. The judge, however, sent m to prison. While, at a few meters of stage, in Supreme Court, Carme Forcadell eluded prison by paying a bond thanks to a very different statement. Forcadell — and or independent members of Bureau, also investigated — pledged to abide by legality. The president of Parlament added that it complies with article 155 of Constitution and that DUI had only a "symbolic" value and lacked legal effects.
