Spain’s Guardia Civil police was raiding the seats of the pro-independence organizations Catalan National Assembly (ANC in Catalan) and Òmnium Cultural on Wednesday morning. This operation was ordered by the Supreme Court judge who is investigating the pro-independence leaders either in jail, in Belgium or free on a bail. The officers entered the offices of former ANC president, Jordi Sànchez, and the still leader of Òmnium, Jordi Cuixart. Both of them have been held in custody in a Madrid prison for exactly 100 days from October 16, 2017.
