The Spanish court suspended Thursday the parliamentary session scheduled Monday in the Catalan Parliament on the results of the banned self-determination referendum, during which a declaration of independence was envisaged.

The Constitutional Court “suspended the plenary session of the (Catalan) Parliament on Monday,” said a spokesman. Parliament was to sit at the request of the separatist Catalan president Carles Puigdemont, who was to express himself. At the end of the debate, a unilateral declaration of independence was envisaged, according to a source from the regional government.
