The Generalitat creates a fund of 10 million to meet the guarantees of the Court of Accounts


The Generalitat of Catalonia has resolved, by decree law, to face the payment of the bonds imposed by the Court of Accounts on pardoned procès prisoners. The Government spokesperson, Patricia Plaja, announced this Tuesday that the Catalan Executive has approved creating a Complementary Risk Fund endowed with 10 million euros to cover the bonds demanded by the Court of Accounts to 34 charges and surcharges of the Catalan Government, for the foreign action carried out between 2011 and 2017

At a press conference after the Executive Council, accompanied by the Minister for the Presidency, Laura Vilagrà, and the Minister for the Economy, Jaume Giró, explained that this fund “Its main objective is to protect all public servants in the legitimate exercise of their duties”. Vilagrà has assured that it will serve for “cover the elements of helplessness that at the moment they affect servants and senior officials “of the Generalitat, alluding to the cause of the Court of Accounts.

The reactions have not been long in coming. The spokesman for the commons in Parliament, David Cid, has defended that the decision of the Government before the bonds required by the Court of Accounts to former officials of the Generalitat have a “real legal basis, so as not to make the remedy worse than the disease”. Cid has asked that the decision be “legally supported and that it does not end up being a solution based on proposals without the possibility of prospering“, and that it is not linked to discussions between ERC and Junts.

For his part, the Cs spokesman in the Catalan Chamber, Nacho Martin Blanco, has advised that “if necessary” they will resort to justice if the Generalitat pays the bonds imposed by the Court of Accounts. “It is inadmissible that the Govern make the Catalans pay again for the excesses of the pro-independence parties“, he lamented, and accused the Government of wanting to safeguard the economy of his colleagues and predecessors.
