‘Catalonia chief prosecutor resigns for backing “legal plebiscite”’

Martín Rodríguez Sol, handed his resignation to Attorney General Eduardo Torres-Dulce on March 5.
He insisted he did not support Catalan secession but simply the right to hold a “legal plebiscite”, after the Spanish government took legal action against a declaration of Catalan sovereignty, which the regional parliament backed on January 23, branding it illegal. Proceedings to remove Sol had been initiated after his controversial statement about this plebiscite.
Catalan regional president Artur Mas responded by saying he will proceed to draft a law on plebiscites and propose a new sovereignty declaration in the regional parliament.
