The jailed pro-independence leaders are not normal prisoners, but “hostages.” That is according to Laura Masvidal, the wife of former MP Joaquim Forn. In an interview with the Catalan News Agency (ACN), Masvidal insisted that “they have not done anything wrong and none of the judge’s rulings have any legal standing.” Her husband’s appeal for release was turned down on Friday despite him giving up his post as an MP in the Catalan Parliament. “Maybe they are being held as hostages until there is no one left out there who thinks like them,” she said.
