MADRID (AFP) – Catalonia’s sacked vice president and three separatist leaders will remain in prison pending a probe over their role in the independence drive, a Supreme Court judge decided yesterday. Oriol Junqueras, who was sacked as vice-president when the Catalan parliament declared independence, Joaquim Forn, who was in charge of interior matters, and the leaders of two pro-independence associations will stay in prison, the court said. Six other former ministers will be released on bail as an investigation continues.
