COURT RULING: Independence declaration dismissed

SPAIN’S highest court has annulled Catalunya’s declaration of independence.

The Constitutional Court blocked the bid made by the Catalan parliament last month.

Catalan parties Junts Pel Si and CUP voted through the  independence declaration on November 9.

The Spanish government appealed to the court against the declaration two days later.

Mariano Rajoy’s ruling PP party are rigidly opposed to Catalan independence.
