Run­nin’ Rebels

Newsweek International - - IN FOCUS - PAU BARRENA

Anna Simó, cen­ter right, the first deputy of Cat­alo­nia’s re­gional par­lia­ment, and Joan Josep Nuet, cen­ter left, the body’s third deputy, at the Sants train sta­tion on Novem­ber 2. They and other Cata­lan gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials were jailed on pos­si­ble charges of sedi­tion, re­bel­lion and mis­use of pub­lic funds over the re­gion’s bid for in­de­pen­dence, which Madrid re­cently thwarted. The Span­ish gov­ern­ment is still try­ing to ex­tra­dite Cat­alo­nia’s de­posed pres­i­dent, Car­les Puigde­mont, and other mem­bers of his Cabi­net, who fled to Brus­sels.
