give a week to receive explanations about Pegasus

The president of the Generalitat, Pere Aragonès, issues a warning to Sánchez and sets a maximum deadline of one week to receive explanations about the alleged espionage of pro-independence leaders. In an interview with ‘El País’ collected by Europa Press, he said that the Minister of the Presidency, Laura Vilagrà, will ask the Minister of the Presidency, Félix Bolaños, at his meeting on Sunday, an investigation of the State agencies themselves ” with independent supervision” and then purge responsibilities. Aragonès wants to know “who has been spied on, who has ordered it, who knew about it, who authorized it and also what use is being made of the information obtained”.

He has said that at the end of 2021 he was certain that he was being spied on and, when asked if he was I’m sure it’s the work of the state, has responded that “all the indications, all the circumstances, clearly point to organizations linked to the State.” Aragonès does not believe that the Secrets Commission of the Congress is the place to give those explanationsbecause it would be “directing the scandal to a commission that is not even constituted”.


On whether the Government does not meet the one-week deadline that Aragonès gives it, for example in the ERC vote on Thursday to validate the decree law of measures before the war in Ukraine, the president has responded: “After the answers, we’ll see.” As for the Government-Generalitat dialogue table, he has stated that “it is relevant enough for it to start, but once confidence has been restored”. He has also answered whether CKD and Together they agree on how to face the controversy, saying that he and Vice President Jordi Puigneró (Junts) have already refused to normalize the relationship with the Government until there is transparency, and also Aragonès has wanted to dissociate this case from the future of the candidacy for the Olympics.

The ultimatum is launched after calling the declarations of the Minister of Defense, Margarita Robles, “insufficient” and demanding transparency in the ‘Catalan Gate’ because he considers that today there is none, and has remarked that the privacy of some sixty people has been violated and has been exposed to third parties, he said. “We cannot ignore the most serious case of espionage that has been known in a democracy,” she declared.

“What they want is to condition the political life of this countryand the political life of this country will not be conditioned by any spy or any government”, said the president, who explained that there is no news regarding the face-to-face meeting he requested with the president of the Government, Pedro Sánchez. However, Aragonès He has said that “it is not about solving the most serious case of espionage with a photograph of a meeting”, but rather that both the allegedly affected and the citizens know exactly what has happened and what they have done with the data they have obtained.

Aragonés has already warned Sánchez that the Government “could fall” if they do not purge responsibility for the ‘Pegasus’ program, which affects more than 60 leaders, activists and lawyers linked to independence. “In governments in our European environment, a case of these characteristics would perhaps lead to the fall of some members of the government, and if an adequate response is not given, of the entire government,” he stated.

At the moment, he said, he does not have information to confirm whether or not the Executive was aware of these cases, and when asked if in this situation the independence movement can resume the unilateral route, he replied: “We are absolutely committed, and I speak on behalf of the Government and my party, with a process of political negotiation”. However, he has warned that this negotiation requires minimum conditions of trust and that “in a continued list of parliamentary agreementsthis is taken into account”, with which the ERC’s support for government initiatives in the General Courts is in danger.
