Spain: Former Catalan Parliament speaker released on bail

Former Speaker of the Catalan Parliament Carme Forcadell was released from Alcala Meco women’s prison on the outskirts of Madrid on Friday after paying €150,000 ($174,700) bail. Forcadell spent the night in jail after the Spanish Supreme Court sentenced the ex-Catalan speaker to prison earlier on Thursday. Four other Catalan MPs Lluis Corominas, Lluis Guino, Anna Simo and Ramona Barrufet were... Еще released but have to pay bail of €25,000 (US $29,100). A fifth, Joan Josep Nuet, was released without restrictions. The six are facing charges of rebellion and sedition with regard to the October 1st Catalan independence referendum which the central government declared illegal.
