14-Nov-22: 'Spain open to modifying crime of misuse of public funds'

Spain is open to modifying the crime of misuse of public funds when replacing the crime of sedition in congress. The organizers of the Catalonia's independence referendum in 2017 were convicted of both sedition and misuse of public funds. Spain's presidency minister said the misuse of funds law could be changed in an effort to foster better coexistence between Spain and Catalonia. Opposition parties claim the move is aimed toward passing upcoming budget bills, but both governments deny that.
