King Opens Judicial Year, Heads To Catalonia

King Felipe this week opened the judicial year at the Palace of Justice in Madrid, headquarters for the Spanish Supreme Court.


The event, while routine, was notable because Spanish prosecutors and the judicial branch are pursuing Catalan separatists.

And His Majesty opened the judicial year ahead of the so-called Diada, Catalonia’s national day.

The King is scheduled to visit Catalonia next week, part of his continued effort to be present in the region.
