Carme Forcadell, former president of the Parliament of Catalonia, and Dolors Bassa, former Catalan Minister of Labor, left Monday of the prison of Mas d’Enric (Tarragona) and Puig de les Basses (Girona), respectively, to care for their mothers from the application of article 100.2 that the Treatment Boards of the prisons have done to them and that allows the inmate to leave a few hours a week to do volunteer work.
Forcadell and Bassa will leave three days a week and may be out of prison for nine hours a day the first and eight the second, which include those that can be used to move from the prison. Upon leaving El Catllar prison, Forcadell was waiting for her husband who was driving the vehicle with which they left the Mas d’Enric. In a message on Twitter, Forcadell said: “We persist.”
Last week, the president of Òmnium Cultural, Jordi Cuixart, who is serving a sentence for the same trial of the independence process made by the Supreme Court, has already left Lledoners prison with the same approval of the Treatment Board of the center penitentiary. Cuixart can go to work for his company for five days a week.
Jordi Sànchez and Joaquim Forn and Dolors Bassa are also expected to follow in the footsteps of Cuixart, Forcadell and Bassa, and end up periodically leaving the prison in application of article 100.2 by the Treatment Boards of the respective prisons.
