16 October 2017 08:03 PM
The chief of the Catalan police, Josep Lluís Trapero, will sleep in Catalonia tonight after testifying in front of the National Court in Madrid. Trapero is accused with sedition charges in relation to the October 1 referendum on independence. The public prosecutor asked the judge to send Trapero to prison, but the latter opted instead for less drastic measures. Trapero won’t be able to leave Spain, his passport will be confiscated, and he will have to visit a court twice a month. One of his subordinates was also released today with similar measures.
