The senior public prosecutor of Catalonia has ordered the head of the Mossos d'Esquadra Catalan police, Josep Lluís Trapero, for his agents to go to the centres designated as polling stations and identify the people in charge at each one.

He signals the wish to take witness statements from them, for them to deliver the documentation they have in relation to events and to warn them of their obligation to not allow their centres to be used for the referendum on Sunday. "Handing over keys could be considered an act of collaboration," he says.

The public prosecutor also exhorts for any type of threat, coercion or pressure on them to enable the referendum to be reported.

In a statement, he notes that Catalan president Carles Puigdemont published on Twitter the address of a website where voters could consult their polling stations, and says that, from that, it's been deduced that many are educational centres.
