Spain’s Constitutional Court has blocked Catalonia’s declaration of independence, the Spanish daily El Mundo reported on Tuesday.

The Constitutional Court warned members of the permanent parliamentary office in Catalonia, including the sacked speaker of the Catalan parliament Carme Forcadell, to suspend any initiative that involves implementation of the declaration, the paper said.

In addition to Forcadell, this warning has been sent to her deputy, who has also been dismissed, and other Catalan officials.
