Former Catalan cabinet spokesperson testifies in Catalan trial
Neus Munté stepped down from government in July 2017
The former Catalan cabinet spokesperson Neus Munté began her testimony in the Catalan trial on Tuesday morning.
She gave testimony after Enric Millo, the Spanish government delegate in Catalonia at the time of the peak of the political crisis.
Munté stepped down from the government in July 2017 – only three months before the referendum.
In the trial, she argued that he had too much "workload" and had had a tough year after the loss of her father earlier in the year to explain her decision.
At the prosecutor's request, she denied stepping down for disagreement with the roadmap towards an independence referendum.
