A legal sleight of hand that would send the Supreme Court into revolt against the rule of law

Cuál es la peor de las tiranías, se preguntaba el barón de Montesquieu (París, 1689-1755), a lo que se contestaba el jurista y filósofo francés: “Νο hay peor tiranía que la que se ejerce a la sombra de las leyes y bajo el calor de la justicia”. A la sombra de la ley de amnistía y bajo el calor de la justicia, el antiguo tribunal del procés – los mismos magistrados convertidos en Sala, menos uno, Luciano Varela, jubilado al dictarse la sentencia del 14 de octubre de 2019 – y el instructor de dicha causa, Pablo Llarena, han ejercido esa peor de las tiranías, convirtiendo su negativa a aplicar la ley de amnistía a los condenados por malversación, en un acto de rebelión contra el imperio de la ley. “Aunque parezca ya cosa rancia y sabida [el concepto de imperio de la ley] “It will soon be back in fashion.” Francisco Javier LaportaThe honorary professor of Philosophy of Law at the Autonomous University of Madrid said this a few years ago.
