Court rules jailed Catalan leader entitled to immunity

EU’s highest court ruled on Thursday that former deputy leader of Catalonia, Oriol Junqueras, who is serving a prison sentence in Spain for sedition, should have been released to take the seat he won this year in the European Parliament. The court said that as a member of the European Parliament, Junqueras had a degree of legal immunity.
