A Catalan court has proposed that 32 individuals and 16 legal entities face trial for criminal organization, fraud in public administrations, bribery, peddling influence and money laundering in the so-called '3% case', the structure set up to "illegally and covertly" finance the Convergència Democràtica de Catalunya (CDC).

CDC governed Catalonia almost continuously from 1980 to 2015, until it was refounded in 2016.

The judge's list includes former party managers Daniel Osàcar, Andreu Viloca and Germá Gordó, and the former legal officer, Francesc Xavier Sánchez Vera.

As well as identifying several high-ranking political officials and public administration officials in Catalonia, Judge José de la Mata's 304-page statement proposes that the CDC itself, its sucessor PdeCat, and the companies Teyco, Urbaser, Fundación ACS, the Soler Constructores group, and Copisa all be tried in court.
