Catalonia-independence vote IT systems ‘shut down’


(SkyNews) Spain’s foreign minister has insisted “there is no referendum” in Catalonia, as authorities claimed to have pulled the plug on the vote’s IT systems.

Alfonso Dastis told Sky News there are “no voting premises, no ballot papers… no authorities to check the authenticity of the result”.

However, he admitted there could be “sham voting” in the region, located in Spain’s northeast, where millions could turn out, according to some projections.

Mr Dastis said police would act proportionately on Sunday but that authorities were having to deal with “intimidation and harassment” from vote supporters.
