- 'Operation Judas'. The detained CDRs met with a sister of Carles Puigdemont
- Justice. Tactical Response Team (ERT): towards the Catalan Republic "by any means, including violent ones"
The National Court investigates whether members of the so-called Defense Committees of the Republic (CDR) maintained direct telephone communications with the former president of the Generalitat Carles Puigdemont. According to sources of the investigation to EL MUNDO, the head of the Central Court Number 6 , Judge Manuel García Castellón , together with the Prosecutor's Office and the Civil Guard, suspect that the so-called CDRs spoke through a “secure terminal” with the former Catalan president installed in Waterloo (Belgium) after fleeing Spanish justice.
This is a new line of open investigation with the objective of finding out whether, after their alleged terrorist actions, the CDRs followed some political guidelines.
The investigations, which are under summary secrecy and in an embryonic state, were opened as a result of detecting that members of the CoR were making repeated calls to Belgium. These would be carried out through a private telephone, which was not in the name of any of the members of the ERT - Tactical Response Team, the most radical wing of the CDRs - arrested last September in the framework of Judas operation .
The Hearing has been investigating for more than a year and a half the cells that integrate the CDR in various related procedures. According to sources of the investigation, within the framework of these investigations, at least two members of the CDR investigated have already confessed that they traveled to Belgium to meet with Carles Puigdemont.
In fact, in the cars where magistrate García Castellón decreed prison without bail for seven members of the CDR, he already pointed out that the ERT "organized, planned and executed" a "secret meeting in itiniere" with the sister of former President Puigdemont with the intention of delivering sensitive documentation and establishing "secure communications" with the fugitive. García Castellón said that this meeting was held on September 15, 2018. For his part, the environment of the former president of the Generalitat said that this extreme was false.
Lines of investigation
Another of the lines of investigation opened by judge, prosecutor and Civil Guard is based on the creation of a new Catalan CNI, beyond the so-called Cesicat , formed by a group of people from the independentist environment, outside the Generalitat, but in coordination with this, who collaborate in the shade with the CDR.
The Civil Guard has intercepted communications that expressly encouraged ERT members to promote violent actions on the grounds that they constituted "an essential tool for independence" in Catalonia .
The thesis currently used by researchers is that it is a perfectly organized cell, under a political direction, and with a specific objective that goes through to achieve the materialization of the «Catalan Republic».
Together with the CDR and the ERT, the Hearing also investigates the creation of Tsunami Democràtic , whose web pages were blocked by court order.
