Nine Catalan separatist leaders have been found guilty of sedition and misusing public funds. However, they have been cleared of violent rebellion over their roles in the failed bid for regional independence 2 years back. All nine leaders have been awarded long prison sentences. Former foreign minister Raul Romeva, former speaker Carme Forcadell and other influential leaders were among the convicts.
