The former president of the Catalan National Assembly (ANC) was given a 9-year prison sentence for sedition after leading a protest on 20 September 2017 in the buildup to the 1 October 2017 referendum.
In a press conference accompanied by the current president of the entity, Elisenda Paluzie, Sànchez explained that he wants Spain to be condemned for “a continuation of violations of fundamental rights.” “I hope that Spain will receive an unequivocal correction from the highest European body regarding justice and human rights,” he added.
Jordi Sànchez wants “no citizen of Catalonia to ever have the feeling of insecurity and uncertainty for exercising their rights to assembly, demonstration, freedom of expression, and ideological freedom.”
Paluzie thanked the international support and messages sent by Gerard Onestaf, ormer Vicepresident of the European Parliament, Irish MEP Clare Daly and Sebastien nadot, member of the French National Assembly.
