The Catalan Parliament’s official gazette has not published some of the resolutions passed by the Parliament during Friday’s plenary session, so as to not contravene the Constitutional Court

The chamber’s general secretary, Xavier Muro, said in a note attached with the publication of the gazette that he believed he had the “duty to paralyze” the resolutions to comply with the law of the highest court in Spain. 

Friday’s extraordinary plenary session was called to debate and put forward motions on the scandals surrounding the Spanish monarchy, as days before it was revealed that the former king, Juan Carlos I, left the country, amid various corruption allegations and controversies. 

Some of the resolutions presented by the pro-independence parties drew warnings from the Constitutional Court.

A joint resolution presented by JxCat, ERC, and CUP that underlines the will of the Parliament to "overcome this monarchical regime” and “effectively constitute the Catalan republic as a state of law” was not published, nor was the mention of the "delinquent corrupt monarchy." 

Another section left out is one that had been presented by ERC that accuses the current king Felipe VI of having participated “with the other powers of the Spanish state in the repression of rights of the Catalan people." 

Also left out of the gazette is the text by the far-left CUP party that reproaches the king "for decades of impunity and illegitimate enrichment" and point to the monarchy as "a mainstay for the persecution of the rights of the Catalan people and against the construction of the Catalan republic."
