The president of the Generalitat hopes that security is guaranteed when he goes to the TS because "going to Madrid has its risk"

The president of the Generalitat, Quim Torra, Torra, has assured this Monday that he continues "bolted" to the table of dialogue and has demanded the President of the Government, Pedro Sanchez, in the role of the agreement to record the "concretion in the rapporteur international "and the" right to self-determination ".

In an interview on Catalunya Ràdio, Torra has assured that he will be "faithful" to the "mandate" of self-determination, for which he has insisted on the conditions so that ERC and PDeCAT can lift the veto on the General Budgets of the State.

It has indicated that there should be in the role of the agreement "specification in the international rapporteur" and "right to self-determination", and include the petition that ERC spoke about the "end of repression", in the sense that there is a commitment of that there will not be repeated "arbitrary detentions" like that of the two mayors of the CUP in Girona weeks ago, Torra detailed.

However, Torra, after considering that the Government has left the dialogue table, has assured that he is still "bolted" to it.

Torra has trusted that this Tuesday, when he goes to the beginning of the trial to the referendum of October 1, 2017 in the Supreme Court (TS), he will be guaranteed security, "because going to Madrid has his risk".

"I hope that security will be guaranteed to me just as we guaranteed it when the Council of Ministers was made in Barcelona" on December 21, he reflected on Monday in an interview of Catalunya Ràdio collected by Europa Press.

Torra affirmed that, after the demonstration promoted by PP, Cs and Vox on Sunday, "going to Madrid has its risk", although he hopes that security will be guaranteed.

He considered that the protest in Madrid was a failure that calls into question a hypothetical electoral majority of the right and thanked the citizens "who did not and did not fall into the trap of a demonstration against dialogue."

He also asked the former French prime minister and candidate for the Mayor of Barcelona, ​​Manuel Valls, if he shares the canticles in favor of his imprisonment: "Catalan citizens have the right to know if the Valls, Cs and the PP want me in prison "

On Wednesday "everything changes"

The Catalan president has assured that the Government-Generalitat contacts advanced until last Wednesday "everything changes: there appears the figure of the rapporteur that Miquel Iceta (PSC) and Minister Calvo makes that press conference and everything goes to hell" .

"Appear in the imaginary of the PSOE two clamps: the one on the right and the rancid PSOE in which appear Felipe González, Alfonso Guerra, Josep Borrell, etcetera", which lead the Government to suspend negotiations.

But he stressed that "in the face of the failure of the extreme right and the grip of the old and rancid PSOE, President Sanchez must have the courage to break with all this and listen to the clamor of democracy and the freedom of peoples."

He explained that he spoke to Sanchez by phone following the train accident in Castellgalí (Barcelona) on Friday but that there have been no further exchanges with the government: "Since the vice president wished us luck they did not want to contact us."

"Democratic response" to the trial

Asked how he faces the 1-O trial as president, he has dodged "the trap of talking about the unilateral path" and has asserted that he will obey what the Parliament decides if convictions are handed down.

"The answer, in case the sentences are not absolution, must be democratic," although it has ruled out calling new regional elections.

Torra has assured that in the cause that will begin this Tuesday "is judged the 2.3 million that voted 'yes' and 'no' the 1-O, and that is, therefore, a judgment to the self-determination.

"All this means that whoever will start to have a huge problem will be Spanish justice if this case does not end in acquittal," he warned.
