All former MPs are additionally being prosecuted for embezzlement. In the same interlocutory order, he ruled to maintain preventive detention for Junqueras, Forn, Sànchez and Cuixart, therefore rejecting Cuixart’s request on 1 March for their release. He also establishes a joint bond for former members of the Government, that is, those prosecuted for embezzlement, for 2.1 million euros as a guarantee against any civil liability that may arise from the procedure. Llarena does not prosecute Artur Mas, Marta Pascal or Neus Lloveras for any crime.
