The trial of the former Catalan Mossos d’Esquadra police chief at the time of the 2017 independence referendum, Josep Lluís Trapero, as well as of other members of the former Catalan police leadership will resume once again on June 8 at 10 am. Their trial for rebellion charges, among others, was forced to a halt on March 13 due to the public health crisis.

Now both the prosecution and the defense will be able to present their arguments remotely via videoconference calls, with the defense doing so from Barcelona. The prosecution is expected to announce whether the accused will end up facing lesser charges rather than rebellion, such as sedition, taking into account that not even the jailed pro-independence politicians and activists, who were tried in a higher Spanish court, were convicted for rebellion.

On June 8 the prosecution will be able to share their conclusions, while the defense is expected to be able to do so on June 15, the same day the prosecution will be sharing their report. On June 16 and 17 the defense will be able to share their report on the matter and both sides will give their closing arguments.
