A Spanish judge on Thursday detained eight members of the deposed Catalan government without bail pending possible charges after Catalonia unilaterally declared independence. The judge released a ninth member of the government, who resigned before the independence declaration, after he paid $58,300 in bail. The Spanish prosecutor’s office summoned the leaders to court Thursday on charges of rebellion, sedition, and embezzlement.
