Spain's Supreme Court blocked jailed Catalan leader Oriol Junqueras from leaving prison to collect credentials to join the EU parliament.
In Spain today, the trial of a group of Catalonian separatist leaders will end. The trial itself started in February, but the road into the court system for the activists started long before then.
Carles Puigdemont and Oriol Junqueras elected to the European Parliament but it's not clear whether either will ever get there.
“This is a political trial and I refuse to answer to my accusers... I am a political prisoner and I am on trial for my ideas,” Oriol Junqueras said.
