Cat­alo­nia Speaker freed af­ter pay­ing bail

Daily Nation (Kenya) - - INTERNATIONAL NEWS -

The sacked Speaker of Cat­alo­nia’s par­lia­ment left prison hours af­ter sup­port­ers posted her 150,000-euro bail, end­ing her de­ten­tion over the re­gion’s in­de­pen­dence drive. A judge in Madrid on Thurs­day or­dered Carme For­cadell to be held on a charge of re­bel­lion — which car­ries a max­i­mum jail term of 30 years. For­cadell was one of sev­eral dis­missed of­fi­cials to be de­tained af­ter their de­ci­sion last month to de­clare the re­gion in­de­pen­dent from Spain. (AFP)
