Spain’s public prosecutor has requested a total of 177 years in prison for members of the Catalan government that organized a referendum and declared independence a year ago, as well as for the former parliament speaker and two leading activists. They are all accused of violent rebellion, one of the most serious offences in the criminal code, which has been widely contested.

The prosecutor demands a 25-year jail term for Oriol Junqueras, the former vice president. Along with Junqueras, eight other Catalan leaders are in pre-trial jail for their role in the independence bid. The prosecutor requests 17 years for the parliament speaker at the time, Carme Forcadell, and civil society leaders Jordi Sànchez (ANC) and Jordi Cuixart (Òmnium Cultural).

With the trial due to start in the coming months, Spain’s attorney general also asks for 16-year prison sentences for other ministers at the time of the independence vote, including Jordi Turull, Josep Rull, Dolors Bassa, Raül Romeva, and Joaquim Forn.

Catalan police chief also accused

The Catalan police chief at the time, Josep Lluís Trapero, as well as two other police heads, are also accused of rebellion, with the prosecutor demanding 11 years in jail for each of them. Teresa Laplana, an interior ministry official, faces a 4 year prison term for sedition.

These proposed sentences would total 214 years behind bars taking into account the 177 years for the political leaders. The fines for them total 264,000 euros.

Unlike their former government colleagues, Carles Mundó, Meritxell Borràs, and Santi Vila are accused of the lesser offence of misuse of public funds, for allegedly allocating money from the administration to pay for the referendum, which had been deemed illegal by the Spanish courts.

The prosecutor also requests former parliament bureau members Lluís Corominas, Lluís Ginó, Anna Simó, and Ramona Barrufet, as well as former MP Mireia Boya, be barred from public office for a year and eight months. Joan Josep Nuet, also a former bureau member, could face a suspension of one year and four months.
