Information and judicial police unit chiefs testify in Catalan trial
Incident in Badalona involving jailed activist Cuixart to be discussed on day 25 of proceedings
Two heads of the Spanish police during the peak of the Catalonia crisis, in 2017, are set to testify on Tuesday morning on the first day of the eighth week of the trial against the politicians and activists who promoted an independence referendum one and a half years ago.
In day 25 of the proceedings, the head of the information unit of the Spanish police in Catalonia during those events began to testify at 10am, to be followed by the judicial police unit chief of the same law enforcement.
Among the highlights on Tuesday will be two local police officers of Badalona, a town outside Barcelona, who will talk about a discussion involving the jailed activist Jordi Cuixart, a local councilor and the police over some independence-related posters in the run-up of the 2017 referendum. On Monday a provincial court absolved the local councilor for the alleged incident.
In the afternoon four more Spanish police officers and one Catalan agent will take the stand, after a Spanish inspector will do so in the morning session.
