Visibly moved and without accepting questions, the former CUP deputy Anna Gabriel has left the Supreme Court without precautionary measures and after having rejected the crime of disobedience attributed to her by both the judge and the Prosecutor’s Office. According to sources familiar with the interrogation, to the only question from the Prosecutor’s Office, Gabriel has denied having received a personal request from the Constitutional Court in 2017.
The former leader of the CUP Anna Gabriel appears before Llarena in the Supreme Court
Legal sources explain that now it will be Judge Llarena who will decide if the summary is concluded and if the case should be sent to the Catalan courts so that, if applicable, it can be judged.
The former CUP deputy left Spain and settled in Switzerland in the first months of 2018, not attending the appointment with the Supreme Court after Judge Llarena prosecuted the prosecuted independence leaders. In Gabriel’s case, her case against her was channeled for a possible crime of disobedience, punishable by disqualification and not jail. She finally appeared in the Supreme Court at the end of last July.
Gabriel has arrived at the nearby Salesas park received by a dozen politicians from all the Catalan pro-independence parties. On behalf of the ERC, Oriol Junqueras, Gabriel Rufián, Marta Rosique and Carolina Telechea attended, on behalf of the CUP all the deputies headed by Mireia Vehí and Albert Botrán attended, on behalf of JxC Josep Rius and on behalf of EH Bildu the parliamentarians Mertxe Aizpurua and Jon Iñárritu. He has also come to support the accused of disobedience Jaume Asens, deputy for En Común Podem and president of the confederate group of United We Can, among others.
