MADRID – A judge has recommended the former Catalan regional president and two others stand trial for staging a vote on Catalonia's secession from Spain and ignoring a suspension order by the Constitutional Court.
Catalan regional court magistrate Juan Manuel Abril said Tuesday that investigations showed there is enough evidence to charge regional President Artur Mas and two ex-regional officials with grave disobedience and prevarication for staging the Nov. 9, 2014 non-binding ballot.
