Catalan lawyers sign a manifesto in favour of a referendum

AROUND 600 lawyers have signed a manifesto in favour of holding a referendum on Catalunyan independence.

The lawyers say the Catalunyan Independence referendum conforms to the constitution, and gave full support to the calling of a vote.

The signing took place at the Bar Association, with the lawyers declaring it “legitimate and legal”.

UAB Constitutional Law professor, Mercè Barceló, stated that the signers are in a position to affirm that the referendum is not a legal problem, but a political one.

Catalunya’s Minister of Justice, Carles Mundó, was also present at the signing of the manifesto.
