Spanish court bars Catalan parliament session

Catalan TrialThe court said the move for independence could breach the constitution

Spain’s constitutional court has suspended next Monday’s session of Catalan parliament, in a bid to pre-empt a possible push for independence.

The court said such a move would be “a breach of the constitution”.

Earlier Prime Minister Mario Rajoy warned Catalonia’s regional government against declaring independence after a disputed vote last Sunday.

Catalan leader Carles Puidgemont has indicated that he could make such a declaration early next week.
