madrid - At the expense of the Spanish Supreme Court, the leaders of two Catalan divorce movements were arrested. They are charged with rape and they remain in custody during the investigation.
It is Jordi Sànchez, the Former of the Catalan National Assembly (ANC), and the chairman of Òmnium Cultural, Jordi Cuixart. According to the prosecutor, they were key figures in the organization of the referendum on independence on October 1. The Spanish Government considers that parliamentary consultation as illegal.
Earlier this day, the Madrilean judge ruled that Josep Lluís Trapero, the chief commissioner of the Catalan police, should be able to wait for the investigation of his draft during the polling session. However, Trapero does not exclude Spain.
