Puigdemont asks ERC that his personal situation not be part of the dialogue table


BarcelonaFormer President Carles Puigdemont demanded on Thursday that he not “interfere” in the “strategy” of the exiles “looking for shortcuts that we do not want.” In an article published in The Point Today, the leader of JxCat has asked that his personal situation “not be part of any agenda of the so-called dialogue table agreed by ERC and the Spanish government or any bilateral conversation.” “We are not looking for any early pardon, it is not the solution to the conflict,” he stressed.

“Four years of exile have reaffirmed the idea that the solution to the conflict between Catalonia and Spain is political and collective; that there are no personal solutions or solutions tailored to anyone,” Puigdemont insisted in the article. , in which he has asked for “respect”: “Also to my Government which is tempted to include this ‘personal exit’ in the conversations it maintains with the Spanish government”. Just today marks two years since the sentencing of the Trial. “If it is believed that I have a share of responsibility in a real process of political negotiation with the Spanish state, without preconditions and with all the ambition that must be assumed, I can assume it perfectly from my life in the exile, “he insisted.

The general secretary of JxCat, Jordi Sànchez, has insisted on this position in an interview with TV3, in which he has defended that “the pardon does not resolve the political conflict, it does not provide concrete solutions”, and has considered that a pardon has the same political cost than “enacting an amnesty law.” “Puigdemont does not want a preventive pardon,” he said, assuring that the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) will “rule” in his favor, on his “immunity and the need to protect free movement.”

In this sense, Sànchez has warned against diverting the focus of attention from the conflict, which “is not Carles Puigdemont, it is self-determination”. “To make us believe that our release from prison or the return of people to exile today already resolves the political conflict is a wrong, wrong image,” he warned.
