Spanish court revokes Catalan independence motion
The Spanish Constitutional Court on Wednesday said it has revoked Catalonia's motion in Parliament to begin the process to separate from the rest of Spain.
Catalonia's Parliament passed a resolution in November setting out a plan to establish a republic within 18 months in the highly industrialized and populous northeastern region which accounts for about a fifth of Spain's economic output.
The process had been blocked since Nov. 11 pending a final decision by the Court.
Catalan leaders elected in September have specifically vowed to ignore the rulings of the Constitutional Court.
