Two Catalan separatists in Spanish custody

A Spanish judge has remanded two key members of the Catalan independence movement in jail.

 

Jordi Sánchez, who heads the Catalan National Assembly (ANC), and Jordi Cuixart, leader of Omnium Cultural, are being held without bail while they are under investigation for sedition.

 

The men are seen as leading figures in organising a 1 October independence vote, which Spanish courts suspended.

 

The government in Madrid branded the vote illegal.

 

Hours before High Court judge Carmen Lamela ruled that the two men should be held in pre-trial detention, the court freed the head of Catalonia's police force, Josep Lluis Trapero.

 

Prosecutors had called for him to be held in detention.
