Two members of the ousted Catalan Parliamentary Board left Barcelona’s Sants train station on Wednesday (November 1) heading for Madrid where they will have to testify at hearing at the Supreme Court on charges of rebellion and sedition over their push to separate from Spain on Thursday (November 2).

MPs Anna Simo and Joan Josep Nuet were embraced and cheered on by supporters as they arrived at Barcelona’s Sants train station.

Parliament speaker Carme Forcadell has also been called to appear at the Supreme court on Thursday, as have MPs Lluis Maria Corrominas, Luis Guino and Ramona Barrufet.

Sacked President Carles Puigdemont and his government have also been summoned to testify at Spain’s High Court where they are facing charges of rebellion, sedition and misuse of public funds for their role in declaring Catalonia’s independence.

Puigdemont, who is in Brussels, will not appear in court, his lawyer in the Belgium said.
