Spain: Tensions high as Catalan politicians appear before Supreme Court

Spain, Madrid
November 9, 2017 at 11:13 GMT -00:00 · Published

Tensions ran high between unionist and separatist protesters outside Spain’s Supreme Court in Madrid, Thursday, as the speaker of the Catalan parliament, Carme Forcadell, and five other Catalan MPs were due to answer charges of rebellion and sedition.

Unionists held banners and Spanish flags while chanting for the politicians' imprisonment, refusing to leave the entrance of the court.

Pro-Catalan independence protesters hold the Catalan flag high, chanting slogans, while awaiting for the Catalan politicians.

The Supreme Court is expected to decide whether or not to place the politicians in custody, while the investigation over the sedition charges related to the Catalan referendum continues.

Se espera que el Tribunal Supremo decida si los políticos permanecerán bajo custodia o no mientras continúa la investigación sobre los cargos de rebelión y sedición.
