Spanish prosecution sues top Catalan leaders for rebellion, sedition and embezzlement

Attorney General José Manuel Maza said in Madrid that a case had been brought to the National Court against the former members of the Catalan government, including the region’s ex-president, Carles Puigdemont, which includes charges of rebellion, sedition and embezzlement.

“With their acts and decisions over the past two years, they have caused an institutional crisis that culminated in the unilateral declaration of independence done with complete contempt for our constitution,” Maza said.

In addition, Maza said that a second lawsuit had been filed at the Supreme Court against the speaker of the Catalan parliament, Carme Forcadell, as well as five top officials in the regional chamber, for allowing the independence declaration to be voted through by lawmakers on Friday.

In total, some 20 Catalan officials are affected by the lawsuits. The prosecution called for their “immediate arrest” should they fail to appear in court to testify.

In both lawsuits, the prosecution requested that everyone involved be compelled to appear in court as soon as possible and asked for the appropriate precautionary measures to ensure their financial liabilities.

These suggested measures would include setting a bail totaling a combined 6.2 million euros ($7.2 million).
