Switzerland's recent request for clarifications in the investigation of the Democratic Tsunami case, led by Judge García-Castellón, has generated an unexpected turn in the judicial scenario. This request not only does it show doubts about the impartiality and methodology of the process, but also highlights the delicate intersection between justice and politics in matters of international relevance. The involvement of Marta Rovira, general secretary of Esquerra Republicana de Catalunya, in this case has been one of the key points in this controversy.

From the beginning, the investigation has been marked by a terrain full of uncertainties and questions. The accusation based on the speed of a retweet by Marta Rovira and the alleged conversations through applications have been central points in the arguments of Judge García-Castellón. However, these allegations have been met with skepticism by the Swiss authorities, who have requested more concrete evidence of Rovira's involvement in Tsunami Democràtic.

Switzerland searches for clarity and proportionality in the investigation about Democratic Tsunami

The Swiss Federal Office of Justice has highlighted the need for greater clarity in the investigation. The request for information on banking movements until June 2020, despite the fact that the events investigated occurred in October 2019, has raised doubts about the proportionality of the measure. This aspect is crucial, as it reflects the concern for a balanced and fair approach to research, avoiding actions that may be seen as excessive or disproportionate.

Impact of the future amnesty law on the case by Democratic Tsunami

Another important aspect that has been pointed out by the Swiss authorities is the potential effect of the future amnesty law in Spain on the members of Tsunami Democràtic and Marta Rovira. This issue is especially relevant, as it could significantly alter the course of the investigation and judicial decisions related to the case. Spain's response to this request for clarification will be decisive for the advancement of collaboration between both countries on this matter.

Switzerland's response to the letter rogatory is a reminder of the complexity that surrounds cases of a political and legal nature. The interaction between different judicial systems, each with its own standards and procedures, adds an additional layer of difficulty in the search for truth and justice. In this context, the attitude of the Swiss authorities reflects a cautious and meticulous approach, seeking to ensure that any action taken is duly justified and proportionate to the facts investigated.

The current situation highlights the importance of transparency, impartiality and international cooperation in the administration of justice. The Democratic Tsunami case is not only a matter of national interest for Spain, but also has international implications that require careful and considered handling. Responses to Switzerland's requests could provide a new direction in the investigation and, possibly, in public perception of the case.
