Two senior figures in the sacked Catalan separatist government must stay in jail but six others can go free, a Spanish judge has ruled.
The six set to leave Spanish jails must post bail of €100,000 (£88,000; $120,000) each. Two top activists must also remain in jail.
The eight ex-politicians were remanded in custody last month. Former Catalan President Carles Puigdemont has fled to Belgium.
Spain feared the others could flee too.
The judge in Madrid ruled that Mr Puigdemont’s deputy Oriol Junqueras and Catalan ex-Interior Minister Joaquim Forn must stay in jail, along with grassroots separatist leaders Jordi Sanchez and Jordi Cuixart.
