Thousands demonstrate in Madrid demanding the resignation of the Spanish Prime Minister

The newspaper "Pais" reported that at least 15,000 people demonstrated in Madrid, on Saturday, against the amnesty law for supporters of Catalan independence, demanding the resignation of Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez.

The newspaper indicated that nearly 15,000 people participated in a march that took place in Madrid on Saturday, to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez after the amnesty law for supporters of Catalan independence received a new impetus in Parliament, during the discussions that took place this week.

It is noteworthy that this protest was attended by smaller numbers than previous ones, and took place without any incidents.

The director of the Prime Minister's Office, Felix BolaΓ±os, said on Friday that the Spanish government believes that a future amnesty law for Catalan separatists will directly include 372 people against whom criminal cases have been raised.

At the end of January, Spain's House of Representatives rejected an amnesty law presented by the ruling Spanish Socialist Workers' Party. Note that passing the initiative requires the approval of 176 votes out of 350 seats in Parliament.

After the text of the law was rejected, it was returned to the Judicial Committee, where it was discussed again to introduce amendments.

On the other hand, House of Representatives lawyers believe that the amnesty law is unconstitutional. Since the draft law, in its current form, does not precisely define the scope of its application.

Lawyers pointed out that the ambiguous nature of the crimes covered by the amnesty could harm the principle of legal transparency, and pointed out that the definition of the cases, beneficiaries, and crimes covered by the amnesty must be precise.
