The lawyers have appeared this Friday at a joint press conference in Barcelona and have agreed that, in addition to decision of German judges, procedural scenario in Spain has also changed, after Judge Pablo Llarena agreed Conclusion of summary and lose jurisdiction of case. In se circumstances, lawyers say that time has come to reclaim freedom of prisoners again. But this time before hall that will prosecute leaders of procés, not before Llarena.

Andreu Van Den Eynde, defense attorney for prisoners of Esquerra Republicana, has been bluntly stated that "re is no likelihood that case will end in conviction for rebellion", so he has demanded that prosecutor's office amend position Shown so far and does not oppose freedom of imprisoned.

Neverless, Jordi Pina, defense lawyer of prisoners of PDeCAT, has admitted possibility that Supreme Court rejects extradition of Puigdemont and can be held trial without former president of Generalitat on bench, but with accusation of rebellion Against eight defendants. "The Supreme Court does not have to make political strategy resolutions and it would be very difficult to explain to millions of citizens on bench re are people who are asked to 25 years in prison and do not feel anor for which would have to ask for five years because H A committed rebellion, "said Pina in reference to Puigdemont. The lawyer also has also censured that Judge Llarena has separated court case into two pieces and left out six or defendants.

"With all respect that I deserve Supreme Court, it seems more and more to that joke in which a person says that everyone goes against direction when in fact who goes is it," said lawyer Javier Melero.

Defense lawyers have also announced that y will use self-conclusion of summary of Llarena because it involves suspension of its functions of six independent deputies (Carles Puigdemont, vice-President Oriol Junqueras, Excouncillors Jordi Turull, Josep Rull and Raül Romeva, as well as former president of Catalan National Assembly Jordi Sànchez). "This suspension implies amendment of parliamentary majorities," said lawyer Jordi Pina, an argument used by spokespersons of independence groups in Parliament.

At anor time, defenses have agreed to reject any possibility of a pact with prosecutor to lower penalties that can be requested, after resolution of German justice. "That decision does not pave anything, re will be no negotiating channel. We will continue to fight for freedom of our clients and end up in Strasbourg human rights court to fight even a penalty for disobedience, "said Van den Eynde.

"There is no negotiation possible with a predictable request for penalties so high for rebellion and not for embezzlement, because fine would leave our clients in absolute ruin for life," added Javier Melero.
