Aragonés asked for a declaration of disclaimer
The president of the Generalitat, Pere Aragonès, requested from the government an institutional declaration of recovery and repair of the number of companies, claiming the responsibilities of the state for his murder. «The Government of Catalonia requests from the Government of the State an institutional declaration that restores the figure of the President of the Companies, that recognizes the injustice of his prosecution, that reveals the illegitimacy of the body that tried him, and which clearly declares the nullity of his sentence», Aragonès said. He recalled that, years ago, German institutions apologized for their cooperation in the arrest and surrender of the former president.

The Junts do not reject unilateralism
In the middle of the negotiations for the investiture of the leader of the PSOE and acting president of the government, Pedro Sánchez, Junts also took advantage of the events in honor of the former president to make companies an example of what “not giving up” represents.
This is what he introduced to the president of JxCat, Laura Borràs, who insisted that his formation does not reject unilaterality “nor by any of the legitimate means” of advancing “liberty.” “Now more than ever, from the Junts, we look into the eyes of this state, which is the successor of the one who shot the President Companys, and we tell it that we will not surrender, that we will not reject unilateralism or even the legitimate resources, that we must move towards our freedom, “said Borràs.
