The Government has been reserved for the penultimate Council of Ministers before the election a coup against the pro-independence Catalan and his attempt to create parallel structures through a “republic digital”. The Executive has been forbidden to operate from Spain with servers outside of the European Union as it considers who is doing the Generalitat of Catalonia. That has been the central question of the government meeting, which has decided, moreover, that to appear the vice-president, Carmen Calvo, and not the spokesman, Isabel Celaá, to give more relevance to the news.

The vice president has not offered data on the information that the Government has for wanting to exercise surveillance in the digital order, although informally the measures that are going to take relate uniquely to the actions of the Catalan Government. The decree shall enter into force on Tuesday. The project is a “very substantial”, according to an expression of the vice-president because it affects seven ministries and law very diverse. The umbrella that has been found is the Law of National Security whose scope is very broad, but also that of cyber-security. The acting president, Pedro Sanchez, has warned this morning of the separatism that “there is no independence off-line or on-line. The royal decree law will force all the servers that use data from the public administrations of the Spanish State is required to be located in the EU instead of stashed digital, have clarified both the president and the vice-president. “We’re going to approve a decree for the development of the digital administration is guaranteed by the State. You are going to require that all servers of the public administration have to be located in the European Union and not in paradise digital. This is going to have as a consequence not be able to use the data for any administration for purposes spurious as it is doing the Government of the Generalitat of Catalonia. They are using the data for that republic digital, to try to break the Status from the online world. We’re going to put an end point. We will demonstrate that the State is going to be just as strong in the digital world than in the real world. We’re going to anticipate,” he assured the president.
Calvo has explained, moreover, that the Government will be transferred to the Constitutional Court more incidents of execution of sentence by a decision of the Parliament of Catalonia as well as the recent debate on the judgment of the procés. “Not applicable to the Parliament a debate on a ruling of the Supreme Court”, explained the vice-president. As a gesture, Calvo has announced that the State bar is “witnessing in favour of the members of the bodies and security forces of the State in any proceedings against them” for the action in the riots, and “also will attend in any process for destruction of public property”.
“we’re seeing a 155 digital, a State coup”, said the director of Policy, Digital, Jordi Puigneró, in a press conference later. The counselor Catalan, however, has not denied that the Generalitat has servers outside of the European Union and has not wanted to deny that some may be in “havens” digital, as in the Island of Nevis. Puigneró has said that the Government is working “in the cloud” and has hinted that some servers may be out of Europe. “Reducing everything to the level of the digital administration where are the servers is a debate which takes us nowhere,” he concluded, after loading hard against the PSOE for “rule, like the PP, against Catalonia” and “a digital field key in the growth of the economy.”

The decree has been approved, but it will not be easy to achieve the desired effects. The site Republicat.cat, the center of the Catalan republic digital, it was recorded in the service of a co-founder of the portal of piracy The Pirate Bay located on the caribbean island of Nevis to avoid the intervention. He was guided by the Council for the Republic, a private agency presented last October 30, 2018 in the Palau of the Generalitat that was intended to be an alternative abroad to the Catalan institutions of self-government. The Executive Catalan prevented host Republicat.cat on their servers to avoid a new barrage of lawsuits. However, it does not seem for the moment a very successful project, but rather the opposite. The idea was to ensure that at least a million people to join and according to the data contained in the web now there is 81.132, who have paid a fee of 10 euros. In the first month alone came to 50,000, and a year later have only got 30,000 more.
independence has reacted quickly. “The threats are continuous. The counselor Puigneró is doing a good job, rigorous, embodying the norms,” noted the vice-president of the Generalitat, Pere Aragonès, reports Camilo S. Baquero . “Now, Peter Sanchez wants to ban a Republic that said that it was not” added later Puigneró. “The republic digital is the birth of a fifth power: the citizenship digitally empowered,” he added.
finally, the Council of Ministers has announced that the minister of Justice in functions, Dolores Delgado, has made the entrustment to the State bar to be present as a defense of the police officers affected by all sorts of incidents in which they have been involved in the riots of Catalonia.”It is a fact of protection to the security forces”, has declared the vice-president.
The consultant of digital strategy Borja Adsuara indicates that the courts can block access to servers and domains if they detect irregular activities or illegal. “It has happened with cases of child pornography or platforms piracy, it also prevented access to Herri Batasuna, in his time”, says this specialist.
The main complication comes when these servers are in “havens” digital as you mentioned Pedro Sanchez, given that it makes it difficult to follow-up. Adsuara argues that the transferringto of data for illegal purposes, especially personal data, is prohibited and controlled by the regulations of protection, so that in the course of which the Catalan institutions are giving the information, “very legal does not seem, you will need consent”.
