Catalomian separatists paid Assange and Yoko Ono for the propaganda of separation from Spain

on Wed Nov 01, 2017 12:36 pm
The ex-head of Catalonia, Carles Pucchemon, for the money of the autonomy government, created a positive image of the region in the world, drawing the founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange and the widow of John Lennon, Yoko Ono

This is stated in a lawsuit by the General Prosecutor's Office of Spain to members of the detached Catalan government, reports the "European truth" .

In particular, the Diplocat Public Diplomacy Council in Catalonia was created, in support of which, in 2017, it spent more than 2 million euros from the budget of Catalonia. Diplocat's assets amounted to 2.3 million euros.

The prosecutor's office identifies three stages of the development of the separatist process. The first - preparatory - lasted for two years from 2015. The goal was to create a positive image of Catalonia in the world as opposed to the rest of Spain, which would justify the referendum and declaration of independence to the world community.

The process attracted world-class celebrities who published statements in support of Catalan independence. The prosecution believes that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono became such people, and their claims to Catalonia were "not spontaneous".

As part of this campaign, Catalonia has also created a department that has opened diplomatic missions in at least 9 countries: Belgium, the United States, France, Britain, Germany, Austria, Italy, Portugal and Denmark.

The prosecutor's office also says that a month and a half before the referendum, Pucchemon signed a contract with a consulting company for 60 thousand euros, after which the American media, The Washington Post and The New York Times, appeared custom publications.

Earlier, the head of the Celalonian Generalism, Carles Pucchemmon, once again ignored the demand of Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rahoi to answer the question of whether he proclaimed the independence of Catalonia from Spain.

In his letter of Thursday, he confirmed the suspension of the Declaration of Independence, and stated that he intended to declare the independence of Catalonia from Spain, if Madrid refuses to dialogue on this issue.

In response, the Spanish government announced the extraordinary meeting of the Council of Ministers on October 21, in which he intends to apply Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution, thereby depriving the authorities of Catalonia.

Spanish Constitutional Court has recognized the illegal referendum on the independence of Catalonia

on Tue Oct 17, 2017 7:24 pm
Spanish Constitutional Court has recognized the illegal referendum on the independence of Catalonia

The Constitutional Court of Spain on Tuesday, October 17, declared illegal the October 1 referendum on the independence of Catalonia.

Tsensor.NET informs about it, referring to the German wave.

The judges motivated their decision by the fact that the plebiscite was conducted on the basis of the September 6 adopted by the regional parliament "law on the referendum on self-determination", which is contrary to the Spanish constitution and therefore has no legal force.

Earlier, the constitutional court temporarily revoked the law before issuing a verdict on the suit of the central government in Madrid. The court ruling on Tuesday states that the Catalan referendum law violates the principle of national sovereignty and "the inextricable unity of the Spanish nation." In addition, the court found that the session of the Catalan Parliament, which passed this law, also contradicted the Spanish constitution.

Meanwhile, the head of the Catalan administration, Carles Pucchemone, did not give a direct answer to the question of whether he officially declared the independence of Catalonia from Spain. The government in Madrid called for such a demand, which gave the regional authorities time to answer by 10 am on the 19th of October. A representative of the regional government in Barcelona, ​​Madrid on Tuesday said on October 19th that he would not receive another answer other than that announced by Pucchemone on Monday. In a letter to Prime Minister of Spain Mariano Rahoi, Pucchemon only offered him a meeting as soon as possible and set a two-month term for dialogue.

Catalan separatism - in the interests of Russia



Vice-President of the European Parliament Richard Charnetsky said that the development of separatist movements in the EU, including in Catalonia, may be in the interests of the Russian Federation.

Tsensor.NET informs about this , citing Radio Poland .

"One can ask the question of cui bono - in whose interests it is possible to say with certainty that it is in the interests of the Russian Federation, which, despite its weak economy, is trying to destabilize the EU, while using any kind of separatism," - noted Charnetsky

The next Monday, October 9, there will be an extraordinary meeting of the Catalan Parliament, which can unilaterally declare the region's independence.

Recall that on October 1, a referendum on independence, which the central government considers illegal, was held in Catalonia. Voting took place against the background of clashes with the police. Law enforcers blocked polling stations, but Carlos Pucdemon managed to vote for Catalan leader Catalonia. Subsequently, the police arranged firing rubber bullets, injured more than 840 people. At the same time, the Catalonian police reported three dead in Barcelona.
