A new law has been passed in the Catalan Parliament on Thursday that nullifies the politically motivated death penalties and prison sentences handed down by summary courts in Catalonia during the Franco regime. The passing of the Catalan law provides historical justice for around 64,000 Catalans, among them Catalan President Lluís Companys, executed by the regime in 1940, or anarchist Salvador Puig Antich, who only a year before the dictator’s death was killed by garrote, an execution method banned because of its brutality.
