Sánchez moves Catalunya politicians to jails closer to home
04 July 2018 @ 01:48

HIGH-RANKING regional politicians from Catalunya are in the process of being moved to prisons nearer their homes as a step towards a meeting of minds between the separatists and the national government.

Spanish president Pedro Sánchez has so far arranged for former deputy leader of Catalunya, Oriol Junqueras and Parliamentary spokesman Raúl Romeva, plus the leaders of the Catalunya National Assembly (ANC) and Òmnium Cultural, Jordi Sànchez and Jordi Cuixart respectively, to be moved to jails in the province of Barcelona so that their families can visit them.

Until now, they were based in the prisons in Estremera and Soto del Real (Greater Madrid region), but they will shortly be admitted to Lledoners penitenciary centre in Sant Joan de Vilatorrada (Barcelona province).

Ex-Parliamentary spokeswoman Carme Forcadell and former regional minister Dolors Bassa, who are currently in the Alcalá Meco women's prison in Madrid, will be moved to the Puig de les Basses jail in Figueres (Girona province).
