The lawyer defending the European Parliament in the case of the parliamentary immunity by Carlos puigdemont has defended this Friday in the hearing before the General Court of the European Union that the institution has had an “extremely open” deal with the independence leader to the point of allowing him to occupy the seat “probably illegal” because they did it without Spain having proclaimed them Members of the European Parliament.

“They were allowed to sit in the European Parliament and, as we have seen from a judgment of the General Court of the European Union, probably illegal, because the European Parliament was never informed that the applicants were appointed or elected as parliamentarians in Spain “, said the lawyer Norbert Lorenz in his statement at the beginning of the hearing.

The lawyer of the Eurocámara reacted thus to the first intervention of the defense of Puigdemont and the other two former ministers elected MEPs by JxCAT, Toni Comin and Clara Ponsati, who claimed that the institution failed to respect the rights of its clients when processing the requests for their immunity to be waived and to be tried in Spain. “We ask them to protect my clients from the European Parliament itself,” said pro-independence politicians’ lawyer Gonzalo Boye at the hearing.
