13-Feb-18 TV News: ‘Parliament speaker takes Puigdemont’s presidency bid to Europe’
The Catalan Parliament speaker, Roger Torrent, will request precautionary measures from the European Court of Human Rights to enable Puigdemont to be sworn in as Catalan leader, again, in the chamber. But, the candidacy of the deposed president, Junts per Catalunya, is skeptical about this move. Puigdemont's bid remains under discussion, as the investigation for the October 1 referendum is still ongoing. And today, for Shrove Tuesday, a tradition is held throughout the country as Carnival comes to end.
