Catalan leader Artur Mas is to be sued for defying a court ruling and holding a symbolic vote on the region’s independence.

Spain’s state prosecutor is to charge him with disobedience and provocation.

More than two million Catalans voted on November 9 on secession from Spain.

The law suit has already been rejected by Catalonia’s own regional prosecutor.
