The public prosecutor in the supreme court has said that they will make a decision on whether to allow Jordi Sànchez to attend the investiture vote in the Catalan Paliament within the next five days – which means the decision may be made on the day of the first debate.
Supreme Court judge Pablo Llarnea said that the decision will be made after giving the public prosecutor and defence five days to lodge their appeals.
Sanchez’s lawyer, Jordi Pina, is hoping to convince the court to allow him to attend the investiture debate and vote.
An appeal against Sanchez’s imprisonment in Madrid to the Constitutional Court is also known to have failed, the court announced yesterday.
Whoever is voted into the position of regional president must be present in the chamber during the debate and vote.
