The Spanish Supreme Court rejected to release all Catalan pro-independence leaders who have been in jail for more than a month. The judge kept in prison four officials: the vice president of the deposed Catalan government, Oriol Junqueras; the Home Affairs minister, Joaquim Forn; and the two leaders of pro-independence associations, Jordi Sànchez and Jordi Cuixart. He also decided to grant a 100,000€ to the other six incarcerated leaders, all of them members of Puigdemont’s cabinet.
