Spain's top criminal court said Tuesday that it had summoned Catalonia's deposed leader Carles Puigdemont and 13 other former members of his government for questioning this week ahead of being charged over the region's separatist drive.

The 14 have been summoned to appear in court on Thursday and Friday and were given three days to pay a combined deposit against potential penalties of 6.2 million euros ($7.2 million), the court said in a statement.
