Former Prime Minister Felipe Gonzlez has refused this Wednesday to grant pardons to the inmates of the procs Catalan. “Under these conditions, I will not make the pardon,” he replied.

This has been expressed in an interview in ‘El Hormiguero’ of Antenna 3, collected by Europa Press, in which he recalled that the Constitution Spanish is “non-militant”. “What (the Constitution) does not admit is breaking the rules of the game,” he defended.

In this context, he has stressed that, beyond the fact that there is no repentance from the independence leaders, the Constitution does not admit that someone unilaterally breaks the rules of the game. S has remembered that whoever wants to modify it has the will to try it legally.

For Gonzlez, the drift in Catalonia had one last chance to cut itself when on September 6 and 7, 2018 the Parliament approved the so-called disconnection laws, something that he has explained that he has commented with the former Prime Minister on that date, Mariano Rajoy.

“It was the last opportunity to say that disloyalty to the rules of the game is paid,” he added before considering that politics should have been put before justice. Gonzlez has acknowledged that he does not speak with Pedro Sanchez since the current leader of the PSOE presented the motion of censure against Rajoy in 2018.
