Spain: Catalan mayor remains silent in court during referendum questioning

Mayor of Mollerussa Marc Solsona exercised his right to remain silent as he was summoned by Spanish prosecutors in Barcelona for questioning regarding his assisting in the organisation of the upcoming independence referendum, Tuesday. Solsona appeared outside the Superior Court of Justice of Catalonia, where he greeted his supporters and addressed the crowd. «I wasn't allowed to explain the... Еще reasons for which I did not want to declare today on the prosecutor's office,» said Solsona. «I am sorry that the appearance will be left as I didn't want to declare», he added. The mayor of Mollersussa went on saying that «to vote is not a crime». «It is not written in any place that a referendum is a crime. Therefore, allowing a vote is not a crime», he continued. Solsona noted that the only thing he sees «is an excessive representation of a normal and peaceful process that we want to do from tour country, from Catalonia». Some 700 mayors face the risk of being arrested for supporting the independence referendum. Catalan citizens will vote in an upcoming historical independence referendum on October 1, in a ballot that has been deemed illegal and unconstitutional by the Spanish Supreme Court.
