Catalonia's High Court (TSJC) has called on the Catalan police, the Mossos d'Esquadra, to provide "on-site and permanent" protection for all courts in the country.

The order comes following what the TSJC describes as "numerous and intolerable attacks" against Catalan courts.

On Monday, the CDR pro-independence group threw rubbish and manure at a number of local courts, with those in Valls and Cervera forced to adjourn proceedings.

The high court also called on the public prosecutor to investigate the attacks to apprehend the people responsible who "planned, coordinated and carried out" the attacks.

Additionally, the TSJC criticised Catalan justice minister, Ester Capella, for her "failure to condemn" the attacks, accusing her of putting the health of court employees at risk.
