The leader of JxCat, Carles Puigdemont, and former CUP deputy, Anna Gabriel, have met this Tuesday in Geneva to discuss the "serious violation of civil and political rights" in Spain. During the meeting, which both sides described as "cordial" and "work-based", the two politicians also shared their "analysis and proposals to join efforts for the internationalisation of the Catalan case".
Although originally CUP sources said that the meeting was on Monday, they later corrected, confirming it was yesterday. It came therefore on the third day of the president's trip to Switzerland, the same day a Catalan MEP brought up the situation before the UN Human Rights Council.
Puigdemont said on Sunday that he would suggest to Gabriel how she can "help" the Council of the Republic he is behind in Brussels. In an interview in Geneva, he said he had "full confidence" in his party's negotiators after it was revealed that they had offered CUP a confidence vote half-way through the legislature in exchange for their support.
