Spain's top court bans Catalonia leader from office

pro-independence symbol from a government building

Spain's top court has upheld a decision to ban Catalonia's separatist leader Quim Torra from holding public office.The case stems from Mr Torra's refusal to take down a pro-independence symbol from a government building ahead of last year's general election.

He was found guilty of disobeying a court order to remove the banner, and will now be forced to stand down.

The Supreme Court's decision to uphold Mr Torra's 18-month ban triggered immediate calls for protests.

It is not yet clear when the ban will take effect, but Catalonia's high court is expected to rule on this imminently.......   (BBC)
