A court in Spain has summoned sacked Catalan leader CARLES PUIDGEMONT and thirteen other members of his dismissed government.

PUIDGEMONT and the other sacked officials are also to deposit the equivalent of seven point two million US dollars to cover potential liabilities.
Similarly; the speaker of Catalan's dissolved parliament CARME FORCADELL and other former lawmakers have also been summoned to the Supreme Court because of their parliamentary immunity.
The summons comes after Spain's chief prosecutor confirmed that he would press charges against the Catalan leaders, including rebellion, which attracts thirty years imprisonment.
However; PUIGDEMONT had earlier traveled to Belgium with several former ministers, even though he denied seeking asylum.
CARLES PUIGDEMONT is being held responsible for the crisis in Spain by holding an independence referendum in the semi-autonomous Catalan region despite a ban by the Constitutional Court
