The return to the fold of the Junts negotiation has implied a silence in the formation in everything related to the talks for a possible investiture -either of Alberto Núñez Feijóo or of Pedro Sánchez- that for other issues, however, is not maintained . One of them, the considerations on the amnesty. This Friday morning, the lawyer and member of the Junts guarantee committee, Magda Oranich, "radically" rejected that a hypothetical amnesty law approved in Congress could include the party's president, Laura Borràs, sentenced by the High Court of Justice of Catalonia (TSJC) to four and a half years in prison and thirteen years of disqualification for document falsification and prevarication.
Oranich has reacted like this on Catalunya Ràdio after the spokesperson in Congress, Míriam Nogueras, defended in an interview on ACN a few days ago that Borràs was included in the possible amnesty law. For the lawyer, "it is outrageous", and she has highlighted that the sentence of Borràs is for a "common crime" and not for events related to 1-O or the cause of independence.
In any case, Oranich has recalled that there are other ways, such as pardon by the government of the day that the same court recommended. In addition, there is still the Supreme Court to say the last word.
“A crime that has nothing to do with 1-O, such as a common law crime, document falsification, may have other measures of grace. (...) But a political amnesty, because it has acted politically, not radically”, Oranich pointed out.
The lawyer, however, has wanted to make it clear that she is speaking as a lawyer, and not on behalf of JxCat.
The interview has provoked reactions in the party. The deputy in Parliament Cristina Casol, very close to Laura Borràs, has opposed Oranich. "If he speaks as a lawyer, I will do so as an architect: always build and not continually destroy due to personal aversions." The comment is on Twitter, replicated by the president of Junts. Francesc de Dalmases, a deputy equally close to Laura Borràs, has also disagreed, retweeting reactions contrary to Oranich.
It must be remembered that the lawyer was in charge of the internal investigation that Junts undertook for inappropriate behavior by the parliamentarian with a TV3 journalist. The report concluded that the party leader also had an "incorrect" attitude after "exaggeratedly losing his temper."
