JxCat has proposed changes to the amnesty law in order to make it effective immediately upon approval and to include cases of terrorism that were left out in the bill presented by the PSOE. The amendments, submitted by JxCat in the Congress of Deputies, aim to address the investigation and persecution of Catalan independence supporters for crimes such as possession, trafficking, and storage of weapons, ammunition, or explosives, as well as acts classified as crimes of terrorism.
The goal is to ensure that the amnesty law covers as many citizens persecuted for their involvement in the Catalan independence movement as possible. JxCat believes that it is necessary to remove exclusions related to possession, trafficking, and storage of weapons, ammunition, or explosives, as well as acts classified as crimes of terrorism from the law. They argue that these exclusions are not appropriate given the use of the Penal Code and state instruments to persecute Catalan independence supporters.
JxCat also wants to include crimes against the international community in the amnesty law to align with international standards. However, they believe that cases of terrorism should be removed from the law due to potential unconstitutionality. In addition to these changes, JxCat has presented two technical amendments to extend the time frame of the amnesty and address cases before the Court of Auditors.
The amendments are a response to the ongoing investigation and persecution of Catalan independence supporters, including the case of Tsunami Democràtic and the accusation of terrorism against former president of the Generalitat Carles Puigdemont. JxCat is seeking to protect individuals who have been targeted for their involvement in the independence movement and to ensure that the amnesty law is comprehensive and fair.
