Breaking! Spain Suspends Catalonia’s Independence Declaration

Eniola Awokoya

Spain’s Constitutional Court has ordered the suspension of the independence declaration made by the Catalan parliament.

The Catalonia parliament had last week, declared an independent state of Catalonia ”in the form of a republic” to the cheers of its teeming citizens and the chagrin of the Spanish government.

The court suspended the ‘independence declaration’ on Tuesday, while it examines an appeal by the Spanish government, on the secession plan.

This is the latest in a series of measures by Madrid to stifle the region’s independence drive.
