Catalonia's regional foreign minister, Raul Romeva, speaks to FRANCE 24 at the end of a turbulent week for his region. Just a week left to the referendum, the tension between Madrid and Barcelona could not be more palpable. While Madrid has ordered the arrest of 15 officials on suspicion of organising an illegal referendum, tens of thousands of people have demonstrated in favour of the independence vote. The issue has been front page news across Spain and beyond.
