👨‍⚖️Day 3 of the trial of the Catalan govt, in 6 videoclips👩‍⚖️

🔴Quim Forn🔴

He'd only been Interior Minister for a few months when he was dismissed and remanded in custody on 2/11/17. His testimony produced moments of tension, and comedy.

[📽️Video thread - ST in English👇]
👨‍⚖️No laughing matter👩‍⚖️

Prosecutor: Do you know if any of those dismissed had declared themselves opposed to this insistence on holding a referendum when it had been declared unconstitutional?"

@quimforn: Well, I don't think so, because they all went to vote.

👨‍⚖️Arrested for a flag👩‍⚖️

Prosecutor: Have you ever been arrested, charged or taken to court for your beliefs?

@quimforn: I was detained in '86 for taking a Catalan flag into a stadium.

Prosecutor: Yes, yes, but, apart from this?

@quimforn: ?

👨‍⚖️How many calls?👩‍⚖️

Prosecutor: How many times did you speak to Sànchez that day?

@quimforn: It's impossible to know, 4 or 5 times

Prosecutor: 18 times

@quimforn: I called 18 times. I spoke 4 or 5 times. It's different.

👨‍⚖️Across the rooftops👩‍⚖️

@quimforn: I've often seen from the Public Prosecutor's office accounts of events which are a little far-fetched. "Across the rooftops", no.

👨‍⚖️"Devastated" police cars

@quimforn: "Action guidelines - the operational phase for the State security forces, point a: all engagement must be governed by the premise that the safety of police officers and citizens should take precedence over effectiveness"

👨‍⚖️Police misconduct

Prosecutor: 2 cars? It was 7.

@quimforn: The devastated ones?

Prosecutor: "Destroyed". I didn't use the term "devastated".

@quimforn: You just said it.
