Trial Watch – Catalan Referendum Case, a platform composed of experts on human
rights issues, reported that more than 10 human rights organisations intend to
send international observers to oversee the upcoming Catalan independence trial. Among the
organisations that have requested to take part is Antigone, an Italian NGO and CILD member, which is committed to protecting fundamental rights within the criminal and penitentiary
system. The aim of the platform is to monitor respect for
the rule of law and human rights during the trial.
