A Madrid judge on Monday provisionally jailed Jordi Sanchez and Jordi Cuixart, the leaders of grassroots organizations Catalan National Assembly and Omnium Cultural.

In a speech to the Catalan Parliament on October 10, Puigdemont said that he was declaring independence but was suspending the declaration to pursue negotiations with Madrid.

Prosecutors say that the Sanchez and Cuixart played central roles in orchestrating pro-independence protests that last month trapped national police inside a Barcelona building and destroyed their vehicles.

Spain has repeatedly said it's unwilling to sit down with Puigdemont if calls for independence are on the table.

The ruling states that during parliamentary process of law, Parlament incurred "in very serious bankruptcies of legislative procedure", which affected " formation of will of House, rights of minorities and fundamental rights "Of all citizens to participate in public affairs through representatives".

The Spanish government is lowering the country's economic growth forecast for 2018 from 2.6 to 2.3 percent, blaming the political uncertainty in Catalonia for the slowdown.
