The prosecutor in the north eastern region of Catalonia said on Wednesday it will investigate the Catalonia leader Quim Torra for disobedience over his failure to remove pro-independence symbols on regional government buildings.

Spain's electoral committee ordered Torra to remove the symbols - put up for regional politicians on trial for their part in a 2017 independence referendum - which it claims are political propaganda ahead of the April 28 election.

Torra could be removed from office for up to two years if found guilty of failing to obey the order to remove objects such as pro-independence flags and yellow ribbons from government buildings in the time frame stated by the committee.
