Spain to pardon jailed Catalan separatists on Tuesday



Spain's government will on Tuesday pardon the jailed Catalan separatists behind a failed 2017 independence bid, Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said Monday.

"Tomorrow, guided by this constitutional spirit of forgiveness, I will propose that the cabinet approve the pardon," he said during a speech in Barcelona which was met with cries of "amnesty" from some members of the public.
