7 Catalans jailed as judge opens probe on terrorism charges

Arrested 7 Catalans

Seven Catalan separatists have been jailed as Spain’s National Court probes whether their alleged plans to commit violent acts with explosives amount to terrorism.

An investigating judge on Thursday found signs that the activists could be part of a pro-secession organization that allegedly intends to use “any means, including violent ones” to establish an independent republic in Catalonia, a court statement said.

It added that no bail has been granted for the seven and that details of the investigation will remain under judicial secrecy.
