Feijóo: “We have difficulties accepting the impartiality of the Constitutional Court”

The president of the Popular Party, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, has said that he has “difficulties in accepting the impartiality” of the Constitutional Court. He stated this in an interview on Onda Cero when he was questioned concerning the attraction of unconstitutionality introduced by the PP in opposition to the amnesty regulation and in reference to the 2 magistrates of the Constitutional Court appointed by the Government, the previous minister Juan Carlos Campo and Laura Díez Bueso, who was director basic of Constitutional Affairs and Legal Coordination.

Asked if the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has “deceived” the previous Catalan president Carles Puigdemont with the amnesty regulation, provided that the Supreme Court denies that it may be utilized to the crime of embezzlement of which he’s accused, Feijóo has said that “Sánchez has deceived him and the other has allowed himself to be deceived”, as a result of neither the Constitution nor the EU treaties have been modified and, in his opinion, each “clash” with the regulation, which he considers “immoral and illegal”. “It is illegal because embezzlement cannot be amnestied according to the EU treaties and, in my opinion, disobedience cannot be considered constitutional” [amnistiarla]however that’s as much as the Constitutional Court.” “I do not hide from you,” he continued, “that we have difficulties in accepting the impartiality of our Constitutional Court, but it is the one that exists. Our obligation is to appeal the law, of course, but a Constitutional Court riddled with two government officials seems absolutely immoral to us.” He then stated that he tries to “propose State policies and respect the institutions.”
