The independence trial continued today with two key testimonies: the Catalan government spokesperson and the foreign affairs minister during the 2017 referendum, both now in jail. The first, Jordi Turull, stressed that pro-independence parties followed the will of the people, and the second, Raül Romeva, said that no international treaties forbid self-determination. Meanwhile, the Catalan government has suspended its public agenda for Thursday, coinciding with a general strike against the independence trial. Opposition parties accused the executive of not dealing with society’s problems, and urged them to put forward a spending plan for this year.
