Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Why has Spain released Catalan separatist leaders from jail? | Inside Story” – below is their description.
Nine politicians and activists convicted for trying to break the Catalonia region away from Spain are tasting freedom again.
They were jailed for up to 13 years for holding an illegal referendum in 2017.
Spain’s Prime Minister gave them a pardon on Tuesday, hoping his gesture will foster a peaceful dialogue about Catalonia’s future.
But could Pedro Sanchez’s decision spark more division instead?
