The European Commission “fully respects” the ruling issued Monday by the Supreme Court against the leaders of independence in Catalonia, an issue that, Brussels recalls, is “internal” and must be resolved within the Spanish constitutional order.
“The European Commission does not comment on the decisions of national courts. Our position is well known and has not changed: it is still an internal affair of Spain that has to be resolved in line with its constitutional order”, said the chief executive of the Community Executive, Mina Andreeva, in a press conference in Brussels.
Thus, the sopokeswoman of the EC said that Brussels “fully respects the Spanish constitutional order, including the decisions of the courts” and has refused to comment further on the situation in Catalonia.
As for the demonstrations in Catalonia in protest against the ruling and asked if the Commission sees with fear that there may be instability, Andreeva has settled the issue pointing out that “the right to demonstrate peacefully and express the opinion of each one is guaranteed in all the European Union”.
