Assaulting the Parlament on the day of notification of the sentence of the procés – the so-called D-day – was an objective “entrusted” by the Catalan CNI to the Defense Committees of the Republic (CDR). This is stated by the head of the Central Court of Instruction number 6 of the National Court, Judge Manuel García Castellón, in the prison records of the seven CDRs imprisoned for crimes belonging to a terrorist organization, possession of explosives for terrorist purposes and conspiracy to Havoc commission.
The investigation of the Judas operation has proven that the so-called Catalan CNI has allegedly been the brain of the plan created to assault and occupy the Catalan Parliament, as stated in some of the magistrate’s resolutions, advanced by the Cadena Ser and to which it has EL MUNDO had access, as well as the investigations carried out in secret by the Civil Guard for more than a year and a half in coordination with the Office of the Prosecutor.
The magistrate highlights in one of his records that the telephone conversations intervened to those investigated appear in the summary in which “there is talk of the existence of a conspiracy plan against the State institutions, which would consist of the assault and subsequent occupation illegally of the Parliament of Catalonia on the aforementioned D-Day, with the ultimate goal of subverting the constitutional order. “
“The development of the plan, entrusted by the so-called Catalan CNI would have been assumed and planned by the ERT (Tactical Response Team) itself, being involved in several of the initiatives that would make up that plan,” said García Castellón.
For their part, sources of the investigation assured this newspaper that the Information Security Center of Catalonia (Cesicat) was “fully aware” of the operation so that the most radical wing of the CDR – a group of “terrorist character and for secessionist purposes “- the Catalan Autonomous Chamber will assault as sabotage of the hypothetical sentences that the Supreme Court will impose on the promoters of the Catalan independence challenge, who unilaterally proclaimed the independence of Catalonia in October 2017.
This agency, under the Catalan Government, has already been investigated in recent years for supporting the unilateral process of independence. The Cesicat was born in 2009 theoretically to control the security of Catalan telecommunications, but, as the National Audit Prosecutor’s Office already denounced, it has ended up becoming “a kind of National Security Agency in the understanding that it constitutes one of the structures basic for the functioning of Catalonia as an independent State “, assuming for this purpose” functions that are not legally assigned to it as being the competence of the State “.
Meeting with Puigdemont’s sister
On the other hand, in prison cars, Judge Manuel García Castellón refers to a key date, on September 15, 2018, when “the ERT organized, planned and executed a secret meeting in itiniere with the sister of former President Carles Puigdemont with the intention of delivering sensitive documentation and establishing secure communications between the former president escaped from the Spanish Justice Puigdemont and the current president of the Generalitat Joaquim Torra. “
That meeting, which is clear from the investigation carried out by the National Court came to occur, demanded “great security measures that were taken and adopted by the ERT.”
According to the judge’s order, Ferran Jolís Guardiola, Eduardo Garzón Bravo, Guillem Xavier Duch Palau, Clara Borrero Espejo and David Budria Altadill, all members of the ERT, participated in that meeting.
On the other hand, the investigation has also been able to determine that some of the detained CDR members participated in a sabotage act last February during the transfer of the independence leaders to the Supreme Court.
According to the instructor of the Judas operation, the defendants Duch, Garzón or Ros intervened “in a criminal act that spills a large amount of oil on the road of the C-55 road, without prior notice.” This maneuver was carried out “at the passage of the convoy that transferred the imprisoned politicians from the Lledoners prison to Madrid.” Which “generated”, in the opinion of the instructor, “a serious risk for road safety and, therefore, for people on the road.”
To carry out this type of action, the holder of the Court of Instruction 6 of the National Court continued, they had technical means to shield their communications, such as “clandestine phones and walkie talkies” to which the use by the those involved in “an agreed language” to mislead investigators if they suffer a telephone intervention.
