Spain's Constitutional Court blocks Catalan independence referendum slated for September

Spain's Constitutional Court blocks Catalan independence referendum slated for SeptemberConstitutional Court of Spain blocked on Wednesday a resolution submitted by the Catalan parliament to hold an independence referendum in September 2017.

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy's conservative government had asked the court to stall any separatist push by Catalonia.

The Catalan assembly had approved the resolution in October before Spain's court suspended it for five months from now, after which it could be made permanent or lifted.

The court also warned Catalonia's President Carles Puigdemont and assembly speaker Carme Forcadell to obey its ruling or face criminal charges.
