The Spanish government announced on Saturday the dismissal of Catalan police chief Josep Lluis Trapero as part of the measures to put Catalonia under guardianship the day before.

On Friday, the head of government Mariano Rajoy had already dismissed the administrative director of the regional police, the Mossos d’Esquadra, as well as members of the Catalan executive, after the declaration of independence proclaimed by the regional parliament.
