Dies ist eine Online-Petition of the European Parliament.


The petitioner is complaining about a regression in the exercise of the fundamental rights of Spanish citizens during the state of alarm decreed by the Government, because of Covid-19. He criticise the limitations on the right to free movement, with the strict confinement of citizens in their homes and a series of unjustified decisions that affect the transparency and good governance regulations in force within the Union and its Member States. The Spanish executive has decreed the closure of the Transparency Portal, which makes it difficult to control and understand the actions it is carrying out and be informed on the evolution of the health crisis In addition, the activity of the democratic parliamentary control of the Government has been severely limited, with only one session of control of the executive. The press has been limited: in the press conferences of the Prime Minister, the questions were censored by limiting them and condition them to the prior assessment process by the Secretary of State for Information. This unexpected limitation is contrary to the state of liberties in force in Spain, incompatible with article 11 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and article 3 of the Treaty on European Union.
