Spain’s Supreme Court this Friday indicted 25 out of the 28 Catalan politicians under investigation in the independence case. This includes all members of the Puigdemont cabinet, six former parliament bureau members, three former senior MPs and two leaders of pro-independence civic organizations. The judge has indicted them for different charges, including rebellion for 13 of them. Under Spanish law, rebellion is a crime that implies an “uprising with violence” and carries a sentence of up to 30 years in prison.
