On behalf of the European Association of Lawyers and on my own behalf I express my deepest condolences to all Catalonian and Spanish people, but above all, to the families of those, who have been killed in a terrorist attack, which happened yesterday in Barcelona. My thoughts remain also with all people injured in this senseless violence.
It is deeply worrying that so many tragedies occurred recently in Europe. There is strong need to fight together against terrorism. I am sure that this horrific act of violence will only strengthen the commitment of Catalonian and Spanish people to protect peace and freedom.
As a longtime friends of Catalonian and Spanish lawyers we wish to assure you about our solidarity and our support for core values of humanity, violated yesterday.
