SCRIPT
Spanish People's Party (PP) leader, Pablo Casado visited Barcelona's police headquarters on Monday, in order to show support for the police after days of protests in the city, sparked by the recent decision to court ruling handing several Catalan independence leaders prison sentences.
Casado was spotted talking to police officers, alongside the Member of Congress of Deputies, Cayetana Alvarez de Toledo, as a large number of People's Party supporters stood behind the fence protecting the prefecture building. People's Party president of Badalona, Xavier Garcia Albiol, and member of Catalan Parliament and Citizens party spokesperson, Carlos Carrizosa Torres, were also seen visiting the police officers.
Protests and civil unrest have rocked Catalonia since the Spanish Supreme Court sentenced nine pro-independence leaders to up to 13 years in prison for their role in the region's 2017 bid for secession. According to Catalan media, at least 579 people have been injured, including 228 security officials, since the protests began.
