President Quim Torra and Minister Alfred Bosch write to MEPs to decry spying against Catalan delegations abroad

Letter sent to MEPs and European and international missions concerning spying against Catalan government delegations abroad instigated by Minister Josep Borrell
The following is the text of a letter that President Quim Torra and Minister Alfred Bosch sent to MEPs and European and international missions today concerning spying against Catalan government delegations abroad instigated by Minister Josep Borrell:
 
Dear Member of the European Parliament,
 
As you are probably aware, information has come to light on the activities conducted by the Spanish Government in regard to the Delegations of the Catalan Government abroad and, specifically, those in Berlin, Geneva and London, as part of an effort aimed at dismantling Catalonia’s legal and legitimate foreign action and, especially, its Delegations abroad.
 
According to the information released, such activities included the monitoring and surveillance in foreign ground of the day-to-day work of the representatives of the Catalan Government.
 
The Government of Catalonia strongly condemns these activities, which target the legal and legitimate work of officials representing a democratically elected Government.
 
We believe that the resources and efforts that the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs has devoted to this attempt to suppress and muzzle political dissent would have been better allocated to the more fruitful path of dialogue as a means to democratically address a political issue.
 
We would like to take this opportunity to reaffirm our intention to continue working, through our Delegations abroad, in order to strengthen the cooperation between Catalonia and its European neighbours.
 
We remain at your disposal for any further information or clarification you may require.
 
With sincere appreciation,
 
Quim Torra i Pla
 
President of the Government
of Catalonia
Alfred Bosch Pascual
 
Minister for Foreign Action, Institutional Relations and Transparency
