BarcelonaThe words of the Minister of Economy, Jaume Giró, this Wednesday in parliament announcing that it would be the Catalan Institute of Finance that would endorse those investigated by the foreign activity of the Generalitat were only the first chapter of a very long day. Only 24 hours earlier it had been ruled out that it was this public body that did it, but the tug-of-war between Esquerra and Junts turned the decision upside down. To carry it out, informal meetings of government officials and contacts with the ICF took place throughout Wednesday to try to make the decision to take the step before the court effective within the deadline. Any operation of the Institute had to be endorsed by the governing board, so it had to be convened correctly so that it was early in the afternoon. It started at a quarter to six and didn’t end until almost nine in the evening. As ARA has been able to reconstruct from various sources, the debate was very hard and the board ended up splitting in two when it came to voting on the endorsements. Three of the members gave the green light, another three voted against, the CEO, Víctor Guardiola, abstained and in order to move forward it was necessary to have the quality vote of the chairman of the board, Albert Castellanos. All this radiographs the reluctance of the Institute to act as a public guarantor.
