The Table of the Congress of Deputies has considered unconstitutional the amnesty law proposed by pro-independence formations to benefit those convicted by the procs, which is why it has refused to process it.

Thus, the Table has rejected the proposal thanks to the votes against the PSOE, PP and Vox. United We Can, in a new dispute with its government partner, has supported the text to continue with its parliamentary processing.

The report of the lawyers of Congress explains that the initiative, which seeks to amnesty all the prisoners and those sentenced by 1-O, would confront Article 62 of the Constitution, which prevents the authorization of general pardons.

They will present an appeal: “We have gone backwards”

The pro-independence formations will appeal the decision of the Table. This has been confirmed this Tuesday by ERC parliamentary spokesman Gabriel Rufin, who has called the decision to knock down the proposal as “terrible news”.

“We have gone backwards”, Rufin has lamented about the criteria of the Lower House, where, he has opined, “the right and the far right” debate “savagery” that have the approval of the Table, at the same time that it stops an initiative to address “the main political problem that this country has”, something he has called a “comparative grievance”.
