While many show they have very thin skin and criticize the boos to Pedro Sanchez In the Hispanic Day parade, ERC, a partner of the social-communist government, insults the Police in Congress without anyone tearing their clothes. “They are savages” said the pro-independence deputy Montserrat Bassa about the agents that remain in Catalonia and has assured: “We disgust them, let them go.”
During its intervention this Wednesday in the control session, ERC has again requested the immediate departure of the National Police from the headquarters of the Headquarters in Vía Layetana. That was the epicenter of the protests after the 1-O sentence was known, where pro-independence radicals surrounded and attacked in all possible ways the Police agents who were protecting the police station. Some of them left with life-long injuries that have forced them to withdraw from the body early.
Now, Sánchez’s partners are once again putting on the table – also at the negotiating table between Catalonia and the Government – the closure of the headquarters of Vía Layetana and for this, from Congress, he has launched all kinds of insults and contempt.
“We disgust and dislike them, we wish them to leave, outside the occupation forces,” claimed Bassa, linking the criticism of torture in the past in Vía Layetana, headquarters of the Higher Headquarters of the National Police, with the ” mutilations and beating with rage ”during the 1-O referendum and court reports on false grounds.
Sánchez has in his hand to buy the excuse that ERC gives him to close the headquarters, a decision that would set a precedent danger in addition to causing a rejection within the Police. The independentistas assure that the Police «passed decades torturing in Vía Layetana and still today she is proud of these tortures ”, said the deputy in the debate of an initiative defended by Vox to request bonuses for the police in Catalonia and that they remain in the Vía Layetana headquarters that ERC wants to turn into a museum in memory of the torture of the Franco regime.
According to Bassa, the majority of Catalans do not like the Civil Guard, “the Spanish police” or the military. “Even with the failures they may have, our police are the Mossos d’Esquadra,” he said before emphasizing that the rest of the uniformed “are not welcome” because during the 1-O referendum they demonstrated that they are “occupation forces ».
“Do you think we love those savages?” He asked himself from the platform of Congress, repeating that “a good part of the Catalans detests” the Spanish police who “mutilated eyes, pummeled the people with rage and lied in a farce trial with the complicity of judges “, for which” he invented evidence against pro-independence and other dissidents. “
“We have disgust and aversion to that Police, what we wish for them as the streets chant is that they leave and do not come back, outside the occupation forces,” he concluded.
The PSOE does not defend the Police
The reaction of the PSOE to the serious insults of Bassa to the Police has been none other than to censor Vox, promoter of the initiative on bonuses to agents stationed in Catalonia. The social-communist government party assures that Vox is lying by ensuring that the agents are currently harassed by pro-independence groups.
Deputy Javier Ortega Smith – critical of the PP management in Catalonia during 1-O for not allowing all the riot gear to be used – has also claimed salary bonuses for members of the State Security Forces and Bodies in Catalonia, similar to those that were applied in the Basque Country during the ETA years, and to reprove the Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska.
