Spain: Pro-separation Catalonia mayors stand firm against state prosecutor's summons

Presidents of the two largest associations of Catalonian mayors criticised the decision by Spain's state prosecutor to summon more than 700 Catalan mayors who have backed the independence referendum planned for October 1, speaking to the press in Barcelona on Wednesday. «We have to remember that when a citizen has a problem with the justice, it is a problem for the citizen, but when 712 mayors... Еще are prosecuted, it is the justice to have a problem. It is something unseen in Europe,» President of the Asociacio Catalana de Municipis Miquel Busch told reporters. He was echoed by Vilanova i la Geltru Mayor Neus Looveras, who said, «Our priority is to see a referendum in October 1 under the best conditions.» Catalonian mayors are set to meet again on Saturday. Earlier on Wednesday, Spain's state prosecutor summoned more than 700 Catalan mayors who had voiced their support to the Catalan independence referendum. Mayors involved in preparations ahead of the vote could be charged with civil disobedience.
