Statement from ALDE Party President on Catalonia

02/10/2017

Following the events in Catalonia on Sunday 1 October, ALDE Party President Hans van Baalen MEP said:

"Respect for the rule of law and respect for citizens rights should go hand in hand. We need deescalation by bringing an end to unacceptable disproportionate police violence and a political dialogue between Barcelona and Madrid as called for by several of our liberal leaders like Prime Ministers Charles Michel and Miro Cerar, ALDE Group leader Guy Verhofstadt and others."
