    The authorities of Catalonia demanded the immediate resignation of Enrico Millau, the Spanish government representative in the region, accusing him of repressive actions.

    The statement was made by Jordi Turul, the official representative of the Catalan government at a press conference in Barcelona on Sunday.

    "We can only demand his resignation, because he bears direct responsibility for state repressions [against Catalonia]," Turul said.

    ​Catalan president Carles Puigdemont also condemned the actions of Spain, saying that the use of batons, rubber bullets, 'unjustifiable violence' during the referendum creates a terrible image of Spain.
