Politicians, including the former prime minister Mariano Rajoy, have this week been appearing in court as part of the ongoing trial of Catalan separatist leaders in Madrid, and some questionable statements have been made. Twelve defendants stand accused of crimes including disobedience, misuse of public funds, sedition and rebellion for having held a referendum on independence for Catalonia without official central government permission. The prosecution is seeking prison terms ranging from seven to 25 years for their role in organising the unilateral secession attempt.
