"Standing-in" for sacked and jailed Romeva
Bosch, who took over the post from Ernest Maragall last Friday, visited on Monday the former foreign affairs minister, Raül Romeva, who is in Lledoners prison charged with rebellion.
When taking office, Bosch said he was "standing-in" for Romeva, who was removed from his post when direct rule was imposed last year after the declaration of independence.
