Specifically, it has ordered that the sentence already adopted by the TC in its day, considering all acts related to the referendum illegal, be applied to the decisions of the Catalan Parliament.

The President of the Spanish Government, Mariano Rajoy, has ordered the State Bar to file an incident of execution of sentence before the Constitutional Court (TC) to paralyze the decisions adopted by the Parliament of Catalonia that aim to advance the call for the referendum on October 1.

That initiative does not need the convocation of an extraordinary Council of Ministers since it is a question of asking that the sentence that the TC already adopted in its day be applied to the decisions of the Catalan Parliament, considering illegal all the acts that had the calling of this referendum as their objective.

Executive sources have reported that the decisions of the Catalan Parliament do not require the presentation of a new appeal before the Constitutional Court and, consequently, it is not necessary that a Council of Ministers endorse Rajoy to present it. It is only necessary for the President of the Spanish Government to ask that court directly for an incident of execution of the sentence dated December 2, 2015, something he has already done.

With it, and before the challenge presented by the Government of Spain, the TC unanimously annulled the resolution of the Parliament of Catalonia that sought to initiate a separatist process.

The Government of Rajoy emphasizes that that sentence already specified that any initiative that had the same objective as the decision considered unconstitutional would be illegal, and, therefore, now it is only necessary to invoke the execution of that sentence to paralyze the decisions of the Parliamentary Committee and of the plenary session of this institution.

Rajoy too demands that the Constitutional Court take a statement from the Bureau of the Catalan Parliament to demand criminal responsibility that could correspond to the president of the Chamber, Carme Forcadell, and to the members of the Table who have supported these decisions to admit the Referendum Law for processing.
