The Spanish Supreme Court has ordered all former Catalan cabinet members to pay 2.13 million euros. Carles Puigdemont and all his former ministers have been given two working days to gather around 150,000 euros each, which means they will have until the middle of next week to meet the judge's demand. Otherwise, they will face having their assets confiscated, said the judge in a ruling on Friday. The reasons given include making sure that any fines that might result from the upcoming trial are paid.
