Meritxell Borràs speaks in Catalan trial
Former public administration minister charged for her role in the independence bid
Former Catalan minister Meritxell Borràs began giving her testimony in Spain's Supreme Court on Wednesday evening over her role in the independence bid.
Catalonia’s public administration minister during the independence referendum, Meritxell Borràs quit politics after spending 33 days in prison, thus abandoning a career spanning more than 20 years.
Summoned to court last March, she was allowed to walk free while most of her colleagues were again incarcerated.
