Spain Jails Catalan Leaders

The former chief of Catalonia's regional police and other regional security officials have been charged with sedition over their role in events leading last year to a banned independence referendum. ("sedition" is a fascist concept)

Marta Rovira, the head of the Catalan Republican Left party who was also summoned to the High Court, announced Friday she had left Spain to live in exile in Switzerland.

Oriol Junqueras, the former Catalan vice president, has been in prison since December.

A German court ruled that Catalan independence leader Puigdemont cannot be extradited to Spain on a charge of rebellion and ordered him to be released him on bail while it considers his return on a lesser charge
In a written statement, Scotland’s first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, reiterated the Scottish government’s support for the “Catalan people to determine their own future”. 

“We will submit there are no guarantees of due process in Spain, of a right to a fair trial in a country where most members of the Catalan government are already in prison or in exile. If returned we submit she will be subjected to degrading and inhumane treatment by the Spanish authorities.”

The Right Of Self-Determination Should Be Enforced As Against A Claim Of Territorial Integrity When Doing So Will Advance The Fundamental Values Of The International Community
