The main argument of the Supreme Court judge Pablo Llarena to keep Oriol Junqueras in custody is in a document called #EnfoCATs, seized during a search ordered by the Court of Instruction number 13 of Barcelona. According to Llarena, this text provides indications of the existence of a “strategic committee” that played a “defining” role in how to carry out the actions of the ‘procés’, as well as the “violence and tumults” that constitute the essence of the crimes investigated.
In #EnfoCATs it is detailed that the citizenship should be involved in an active way “increasing the level of conflict according to the response of the State, but always under the leadership (…) of all the actors involved”.
The judge considers that both Junqueras and the rest of those still imprisoned –Joaquim Forn, Jordi Sànchez and Jordi Cuixart– were part of this “strategic committee” that should guide and direct the implementation of the plan, aligning all the actors involved and by mobilizing the necessary human and financial resources.
Four fundamental elements
At this point, the judge details four elements contained in this document: “social manipulation” – categorizing Catalans according to their ideological positioning – effective control of institutions, the need to work on international credibility and redeployment of regional structures – -Mossos, Center for Telecommunications and Information Technology (CTTI), Treasury, Social Protection Agency).
In the case of the four investigated in prison, the judge said that they led the mobilizations “that put at risk the violent social explosion (…) these defendants even come to intervene in its material execution”, as it considers that is the case of Sánchez and Cuixart.
