Antoni Bassas’s analysis: ‘The offensive continues to charge democracy’

This morning the Official Gazette of the Generalitat publishes the decree by which the Government will endorse the millions in bail that the Court of Auditors has imposed on forty people in political persecution for November 9, 2014 and October 1, 2017. The decree is already published and the Parliament you have to vote for him (and he will have the votes he needs). It must be said that the Government has lived up to it, protected its senior officials and public officials, as we called for this week. However, to do so, the Minister of Economy, Jaume Giró, has had to invent a new mechanism. The operation will be as follows: Those affected by the case of the Court of Auditors must apply for insurance from the Catalan Institute of Finance, which, in turn, will request a guarantee from a financial institution – the Generalitat has maintained contacts in recent hours with a bank to make it happen. When it arrives on July 21, fifteen days from now, and the deposit has to be deposited in the Court of Auditors, the investigators will present the bank guarantee and, in this way, they will not have to put money out of their pocket or seize his estate before a final judgment. When the sentence is firm (in a few years, because this will end in Strasbourg) the Generalitat has no risk of losing money. At first the Government acts as a counter-list and then makes a loan. It’s a way to stop the blow, and gain time to save those investigated from ruin.
