Spain's Constitutional Court ruled on Wednesday that a national state of alarm, which included a strict home confinement to curb the first wave of COVID-19 infections last year, was unconstitutional, the court said in a statement.

Introduced last March, the state of emergency allowed the government to temporarily suspend civil liberties, confining almost all Spaniards to their homes and shutting down all but essential industries.

Of course, I said this from day one when this North Korean style nonsense started. This cannot be contitutional, but then everbody laughed, of course. So, does that now mean Sanchez can be removed from office, trialed and locked away foregood? Including his socialist and communist clan?
