Catalan regional head Quim Torra called for a new referendum to determine the status of Catalonia as he spoke to the regional parliament on Thursday, APA reports citing Sputnik.

Note that Catalonia, Spain's northeastern region, has been embroiled in demonstrations over the past three days in the wake of the Supreme Court decision to imprison nine Catalan independence leaders for their attempt to implement the region's breakaway from Spain in 2017.
