Spain's Constitutional Court blocks Catalan independence bid

Spain’s Constitutional Court said it had blocked a motion passed in Catalonia’s parliament to resume steps to declare independence, following an appeal against the move filed by Spain’s central government.

The Catalan parliament can appeal against the decision within the next 20 days.

Both the court and the Spanish government have said that Catalonia cannot hold a referendum on independence under Spain’s constitution.
