The Prosecutor’s Office of the National High Court has presented before the Central Court of Instruction number 6 of the National High Court requesting the closure of the instruction regarding the Tactical Response Teams (ERT) of the Committees in Defense of the Republic (CDR) and the prosecution of all the accused, a total of 13 people, for crimes of terrorism.
In his letter, advanced by El Confidencial and to which ABC had access, Lieutenant Prosecutor Miguel Ángel Carballo argues throughout 81 pages that there are indications to bring this group to the bench whose objective «It was to achieve the independence of Catalonia, using violence in its maximum expression, by forcing in a coercive way the institutions to grant the separation of Catalonia from the rest of Spain through deeds ”.
They are Eduardo Garzón, Esther García, Sonia Pascual, Queralt Casoliva, Germinal Tomás, Alexis Codina, Jordi Ros, Guillem Xavier Duch and Rafael Joaquín Delgado, Ferran Jolis, Xavier Buigas, David Budria and Clara Borrero.
All are indicated for integration of a terrorist organization and the first nine are also attributed possession, storage and manufacture of explosives such as termite, which they were trying to synthesize in “Two clandestine laboratories” raised in two homes.
«The activity carried out in these home laboratories pursued, in short, as its main purpose ‘the manufacture of the thermal aluminum agent called Termite’, as well as the ‘synthesis of breaking explosives in the orbit of Hexogen, Ammonium Nitrate, Tetralite, Nitrocellulose and Chloratite ‘”, relates the prosecutor’s letter.
It explains that from the evidence collected during the investigation and both physical and digital analyzed after the searches, it is concluded that the accused would have “carried out all the necessary steps for the elaboration and manufacture of incendiary, deflagrating and explosive substances, effectively“, Acquiring” the necessary knowledge (even with the advice of experts) “and buying” the substances or elements necessary for its manufacture “, sometimes under false identities. In the spotlight, a series of infrastructures.
“The terrorist organization at the time of its dismantling had already carried out precise information on its possible objectives,” explains the prosecutor. It emphasizes that »they would have developed preparatory acts, consisting of a task of recognition of objectives,
surveillance and control of police facilities, taking pictures and videos of predetermined targets«Among which stand out the Barcelona Civil Guard Command, of which they made a» full recognition «, but also the headquarters of the Naval Command, the Military Government and the Government Delegation. They also searched for public figures and Mossos agents.
A radical cell in a broader movement
For the Prosecutor’s Office, this group is integrated into the general movement of the CDRs, within which they would have “formed a parallel terrorist organization, clandestine and stable, whose objective would be to carry out violent actions or attacks against previously selected targets using for this the explosives and / or incendiary substances manufactured “in the two aforementioned home laboratories.
The members of this “cell” are defined, as well as “a reduced group of individuals from different CDRs, who show great radicalism” and who have already had “active participation in the materialization of some of the most forceful actions that have led to carried out the committees, such as the oil spillage on the road that the van was going to travel with the prisoners of the procés.
However, they went further, according to the prosecutor’s conclusions, “assuming the order received from a so-called ‘Catalan CNI’ so that provide the necessary logistics infrastructure in order to undertake an action in which it was intended to occupy the Parliament of Catalonia, and defend it later, all given the technical and human capacity of the aforementioned group ”.
They had 6,000 euros to set up a communications system that would allow a blockade of the Parliament, which they would access with the help of someone from within, and “extensive knowledge” of computing to do so. It was thus, according to the Prosecutor’s Office, that “those investigated, taking advantage of the contacts fostered within the militancy in the CDR, became a cell that raised the intensity and nature of the actions carried out to a higher level».
