madrid - Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont may be charged with rebellion. The Spanish Public Prosecutor's Office confirmed Saturday that it is preparing a charge against him and other separatists.
If the Catalan leaders call for independence, they violate the Spanish constitution and risk them from 15 to 25 years of imprisonment. If it comes to armed insurgency, punishment can be increased to thirty years, according to Spanish media.
The Spanish government is threatening to suspend the autonomy of Catalonia. Puigdemont has threatened that the region will call on independence.
