The CUP asks Borràs for his voluntary suspension when an oral trial is opened

Yesterday, the CUP publicly established its position on the future of Laura Borràs as president of the Parliament, in light of the legal case that surrounds her, asking the leader of Junts to voluntarily withdraw from her responsibility as head of the Chamber when she is open trial.

After not having received from ERC and Junts any consensual proposal for a solution to the mess, the anti-capitalists pointed out what Borràs should do if she is prosecuted for the case about the alleged splitting of contracts to benefit a friend when she directed the Institució de les Lletres Catalanes. "The Catalan institutions and the independence movement cannot be mired" by a cause of corruption, "and it is not admissible to use a collective project to cover up bad personal practices," warned the anti-capitalist deputy Xavier Pellicer from the Parliament.

For this reason, the CUP urges Borràs to withdraw by making use of article 25.2 of the Chamber's regulations, on voluntary suspension, if in the end he sits on the bench, because this would be the "least damaging" path for the institution and for independence, according to the deputy.

But Borràs has already reiterated that he does not intend to resign. In such a case, the anti-capitalists warn that they will be "feeding the discredit against the independence movement and against the institutions", since that obstinacy would force the parliamentary groups to have to forcefully remove it by applying article 25.4 of the regulation, which indicates the suspension immediately of the deputy who is forced to sit on the bench for crimes of corruption. A route that would cause the matter to be delayed and would stage the clash between the independence parties in a plenary session of Parliament.
