King Felipe today once again slammed Catalan separatists who claim to be acting in the name of Democracy.
The King said it was inconsistent for people to invoke Democracy while at the same time breaking the law.
“Without respect for the law there is no coexistence or Democracy,” said His Majesty.
The King spoke at the Royal Opera building for the closing of the World Law Congress. He won the World Peace and Liberty Award.
The Spanish Supreme Court is currently trying several Catalan separatists for planning an illegal referendum on independence and also declaring a separate state.
Barcelona’s left-wing Mayor Ada Colau said she would not attend a welcoming ceremony for the King at the upcoming Mobile World Congress because of her republican values and his role against the separatists, which she calls unhelpful.
