EU Court of Justice withdraws parliamentary immunity from Carles Puigdemont


The Court of Justice of the European Union (EU) withdrew, this Friday, the parliamentary immunity to the former president of the Government of the autonomous region of Catalonia, Carles Puigdemont, and also to the Catalan MEPs Toni Comín and Clara Ponsatí.

The Court revoked the provisional decision that had been adopted on June 2, which temporarily granted the three MEPs parliamentary immunity.

The previous decision had been due to the appeal that the three MEPs of the JxCAT party had presented against the decision of the European Parliament.

The rejection of the precautionary measures is part of a process of MEPs against the European Parliament, for suspension of immunity. The EU Court of Justice has not yet considered the merits of the action, but in the meantime the three Catalan MEPs will be without immunity.

Carles Puigdemont has already reacted, via the social network Twitter, and lamented that some media “do not read the Court’s decision in all its depth”.
