On the 13th October 2019 Spain’s Supreme Court has imposed sentences on 12 politicians, who are accused of holding the illegal referendum on the independence of Catalonia, Russian news agency RT reports. The claims turns out to be true.
14.10.2019 – RT reports, that the Second Chamber of the Supreme Court of Spain has passed judgement on the case 20907/2017 of 13.10.2019 upon 12 Catalonian politicians, who are accused of holding the illegal referendum on the independence of Catalonia and declaring independence through the local parliament in 2017 within the separatist process.
In order to check on the truthfulness of RT’s report we aidlessly found the original source of information, which is the official Web site of the Supreme Court of Spain. In the section called “Noticias Judiciales” (Judicial news) we found the requiered information regarding the case of the accused Catalonian politicians. This court report contains not only the key information about the court’s proceedings, but also the attached documents on the case 20907/2017. Guided by the official court’s decree we drew a conclusion, that 12 Catalonian politicians (Oriol Junqueras, Raül Romeva, Dolors Bassa, Jordi Turull, Carme Forcadell, Joaquim Forn, Josep Rull, Jordi Sánchez, Jordi Cuixart, Santiago Vila, Meritxell Borràs, Carles Mundó) were actually sentenced to imprisonment and fines.
Therefore, we may conclude that the news article published by RT is true.
