It was inevitable that the General Council of the Judiciary would knock down substantial parts of the animal protection bill, also prepared, by the way, by the Ministry of Ione Belarra. And it has also done so unanimously, something atypical in such a divided CGPJ. The disproportion in various penalties provided for, in such a way that in some cases the minor mistreatment of an animal could be punished more than the assault on a person, did not make sense, and this is what the governing body of judges states. Once again, the Executive branch suffers from a lack of regulatory rigor, a refined legal technique and a sense of logic. The ruling is not binding, and that is another key to Belarra being tempted to ignore it. But he should learn from what happened with the ‘only yes is yes’ law and avoid another nonsense.
