Carme Forcadell today announced that she will not continue as speaker of the Catalan Parliament after the chamber holds its opening session on 17th January. Today, this news shares the Catalan media's attention with that of the hearing in Spain's Supreme Court of three jailed pro-independence leaders. They are accused of sedition and other crimes after the declaration of independence; their aim is to be released on bail. Meanwhile, in Tarragona, a flat was purchased in a very unique way - it is the first one bought using only bitcoins.
