Catalonia’s top politicians held in jail while Puigdemont hangs on in Brussels


The judge in the National Court in Spain dealing with the Catalan policial and constitutional crisis, Carmen Lamela, has accepted a request from the Spanish prosecutor’s office to order the ‘arrest without bail’ for eight of the nine former members of the Catalan regional government.

Only Santi Vila, who resigned a day before the unilateral declaration of independence of Catalonia was made, has avoided jail if he pays €50,000 in bail money.
