Spain: Prosecutors ask judge to have Catalan officials held prisoner

Source: Independent [Ireland]

“Spain’s National Court has been questioning ousted Catalan government members in an investigation into possible rebellion charges for having declared the region’s independence. A parallel Supreme Court session for six Catalan lawmakers was postponed for a week. Prosecutors called on the National Court in Madrid to jail all nine former members of the Catalan government who appeared for questioning. The request was for unconditional jail for eight of the politicians, while bail could be set for the remaining one. It was not immediately clear how the judge would rule on the request.” (11/02/17)
