MADRID (Reuters) – Spain’s Supreme Court on Friday denied Catalan separatist Oriol Junqueras, in jail awaiting a ruling of charges related to his part in the region’s 2017 independence bid, permission to leave jail to collect his European parliament credentials.

Without the credentials, Junqueras will be unable to claim his seat in the European parliament after winning the position in the European election on May 26.
