A Spanish judge placed Catalonia’s regional police chief under judicial investigation for alleged “sedition” over his handling of unrest last month sparked by the region’s contested independence drive, a court spokesman said Wednesday.

The National Court in Madrid summoned Josep Luis Trapero and three other suspects to a hearing on Friday “in a case of sedition,” said the spokesman, who asked not to be named.

Catalonia’s regional police have been accused of failing to rein in pro-independence protesters.
