Several foreign MEPs have denounced the “difficulties” that they are coming across in obtaining authorization to visit Catalan politicians and activists locked in the prisons of Estremera, Alcalá de Meco and Soto del Real. “We have not received any kind of cooperation from the government of Madrid,” they said in a statement from the Platform for EU-Catalonia Dialogue, a delegation of 16 MEPs who asked to visit the counsellors in prison.
