President of the Generalitat of Catalonia Carles Puigdemont met with the Independent Commission for Mediation, in Barcelona on Friday, where he is expected to discuss the current political situation in Catalonia. Friday's meeting came amid the decision of some leading Catalan firms, including Caixabank and Sabadell, to move their registered offices out of Catalonia as the region is set to declare... Еще independence unilaterally. A planned press conference following the meeting has now been cancelled. Catalonia held a referendum on October 1 to decide on the region's independence, however, the Spanish government deemed the action 'illegal' and 'unconstitutional'. At least 893 people and 33 police officers were reportedly injured in violent confrontations between voters and Spanish civil police who attempted to stop Catalans from voting at polling stations.
