12-Mar-18 TV News: ‘Jailed MP appeals court decision to bar him from presidency’
Jordi Sànchez, who has been behind bars for almost five months now, is requesting permission to defend his candidacy for president by appealing the ruling made by the Spanish Supreme Court. After Carles Puigdemont, he is the second pro-independence MP to try to become Catalan leader - and also, to come up against Spain’s opposition. In the meantime, there is no government, and Madrid’s direct rule continues, which continues bringing concerns. Meanwhile, there was an evaluation on the state of child poverty in the country, and the Catalan film industry gets an international platform, in Mexico.
