THE CONSTITUTIONAL COURT DECLARES VOID BAN BULLFIGHTING CATALUNYA

After a six-year Espar, the Committee Consituticional Guarantees Tribunal approved by eight votes to three, declaring the ban on bullfighting in Catalonia unconstitutional. The Autonomous Communities have the right to regulate the show, but not to prohibit, as this matter is the responsibility of the State, serving similiar law to cases in other regions.

Bullfighting is declared as Intangible Cultural Asset of Spain and is the State custom promote, protect and defend it.

So would violate Article 149 of the Constitution: "The State has exclusive jurisdiction over the defense of Spanish cultural, artistic and monumental heritage (...), and point two of this same provision:" Without prejudice to the powers may assume the Autonomous Communities, the State shall consider the service of culture a duty and an essential function and shall facilitate cultural communication between the Autonomous Communities, according to them. "

This assumes to be published in the Official Gazette and compliance.

There is the contradiction that bullfights were banned, but not "Correbous" quite likely that actually were politically motivated and not the protection of animals, which led to the ban of bullfighting in Catalonia.

Since the Catalan Autonomous Community is a growing disobedience to the Spanish Institutional Courts will analyze how and when compliance with this important decision.
