Following the appeal of unconstitutionality with number 2577-2020 filed by the Popular Party Parliamentary Group against the Decree-law of the Government of the Generalitat de Catalunya 17/2019, of 23 December, on 28 January 2021 the Constitutional Court issued a judgment in which it declared several articles of DL 17/2019 to be unconstitutional and null and void.
