The former deputy of Convergència i Unió Jaume Camps has died at the age of 78, as the ACN has been able to confirm.
Born in Barcelona on November 9, 1944, he graduated in law from the University of Barcelona and graduated in tax and financial studies.
Political activism led him to join the Democratic Union of Students. In 1975 he joined the Convergència Democràtica de Catalunya (CDC), a formation that he represented in the Assembly of Catalonia and in the Consell de Forces Polítiques de Catalunya. He was also vice president of the Association for the United Nations in Spain. He was part of the Parliament as a representative of Convergència i Unió during seven legislatures, from 1980 to 2005.
In 2004 he resigned from the seat and was proposed by the CiU as a member of the Consell Consultiu de la Generalitat.
In 2012, he declared that he was being investigated in the Millet case for an alleged payment from the construction company Ferrovial. Two years later, the judge closed the case on the grounds that if there had been a crime, the statute of limitations had already expired.
