Spanish court block Catalan independence move

Monday’s session of the Catalan parliament has been suspended by Spain’s Constitutional court in an attempt to block the possible push for independence.


Catalan’s leader Carles Puigdemont had indicated that he could make a declaration of independence at next week’s session. However, the court said that the move would be a “breach of the constitution.” The court said that allowing the regional; parliament to meet and declare independence would violate the rights of the party’s MPs.


The vote last Sunday, which had been condemned by the court as illegal was said to have a 90% vote in favour of independence. Official results have not yet been published and there has been several claims of irregularities. The vote saw a day of violence as police tried to enforce the ban from the Spanish court.
