The Catalan Parliament president, Roger Torrent, met a high-ranking official of the UN Human Rights Council in order to denounce what he describes as a “violation of fundamental rights” in Catalonia. The speaker met Mona Rishmawi, the delegate director of the Council, and told her that the institution she represents should get “involved” in finding a “political solution” for the Catalan situation, and in the defence of fundamental rights in Catalonia. Torrent made this move after the Spanish judiciary prevented the swearing-in of  Catalan MPs in the past few months, while the country remains without a president nearly four months on from the December 21 election called by Madrid.
