Court rejects suspending some jailed independence leaders' low prison category, but accepts others
Judge revokes privileges of Turull and Rull, while Bassa and Forcadell keep their partial freedom
A court has rejected suspending jailed independence leaders Carme Forcadell and Dolors Bassa's low prison category privileges as had been requested by the public prosecutor
A judge accepted the request from prosecutors to revoke the privileges of Jordi Turull and Josep Rull later on Thursday afternoon, meaning they will return to the Lledoners penitentiary center.
This comes only days after Oriol Junqueras, Raül Romeva, Quim Forn, Jordi Cuixart, and Jordi Sànchez returned to Lledoners prison after a judge suspended their categorization.
According to the courts overlooking the cases of Bassa and Forcadell who keep their partial freedom, these privileges cannot be suspended as a precautionary measure until they are appealed in Spain's Supreme Court, where the nine imprisoned independence politicians and activists were tried and sentenced last October.
The affected parties will have 10 days to present any relevant allegations on the matter.
