Spain sentences Catalan separatist leader to 13 years

Spain’s Supreme Court on Monday sentenced nine Catalan separatist leaders to between nine and 13 years in prison for sedition over their role in the region’s failed bid for independence in 2017. All defendants were acquitted of the most severe charge, rebellion. Much is at stake in the trial that has attracted worldwide attention, triggering Spain’s biggest political crisis in decades.
