Catalan Separatist Leader Ordered To Remain In Jail By Spain's Supreme Court

Description

On Friday, Spain's Supreme Court ordered that Catalan separatist leader Oriol Junqueras stay in custody after already serving over two months in prison for his part in the Spanish region's push for independence. Judges released a written ruling claiming that there existed a risk that Junqueras would again commit an offence as there was no evidence to show that he had abandoned "the path followed so far." He remains in custody on allegations of rebellion, sedition, and misuse of public funds.

    According to a report by Reuters, on Tuesday, twelve Catalan separatist leaders went on trial in Madrid over a failed bid for independence that laid bare historical divisions and triggered Spain's largest political crisis in decades. Defendants in the politically charged trial, which is expected to last at least three months, face charges of rebellion, sedition, as well as misuse of public funds, charges which they, and their supporters, all reject. Reuters reports that supporters carried signs reading “Freedom for political prisoners” while a small rival group shouted “Golpista” or “coup plotter”, labeling the region’s independence declaration of October 2017 as an attempt to dismantle the Spanish state.
