Two CUP councillors are arrested for not appearing in court after being summoned to give evidence for signing a manifesto against police violence during the 1 October referendum


The Reus court, which is investigating the mayor and several councillors for the crime of inciting hatred for having signed a manifesto to reject the police violence that occurred during the 1 October referendum, orders the arrest of two CUP councillors who did not turn up to give evidence on two occasions. They are arrested on 28 December and the following day, after appearing in court and refusing to testify, they are released. The third CUP councillor investigated does not turn up to her second court summons on 29 December.
