Spanish judge withdraws arrest warrant for Catalan leaders

• by Aritz Parra and Raf Casert

A Supreme Court spokesman said that the five could still be arrested if they go back to Spain, however, because they are still being sought at home for possible crimes related to the independence bid in northeastern Catalonia.

In a surprise move, Supreme Court magistrate Pablo Llarena said on Tuesday that individual warrants don't apply anymore because the alleged crimes were a group action, according to new evidence.

He also said that the probed politicians have shown their "intention to return to Spain" in order to run for regional elections in Catalonia.
