The High Prosecutor’s Office of Catalonia is suing the president of the AMI and mayor of Vilanova i la Geltrú, Neus Lloveras, and the president of the ACM, Miquel Buch, for the crimes of disobedience, prevarication and embezzlement of public funds for their collaboration in organising the referendum. On 18 September, the Admissions Chamber of the High Court of Justice of Catalonia agrees to hear the complaint for a possible crime of disobedience, but rules out the crimes of embezzlement and prevarication for the time being.
