Amnesty. Political Pardons and the Law.


  1. The law relating to political pardons dates back to 1870.
  2. If the pardon relates to a public order offence, there must be a prior criminal conviction.
  3. If the pardon relates to a constitutional breach, no prior conviction is necessary.
  4. Were pardons not to be given out  by the state Junqueras would be free and some policemen imprisoned. Totally unfair.
  5. Under the current constitution, Puigdemont would probably have to go in front of the courts before receiving a pardon.
