Such a referendum has been scheduled for October 1 by "the region's separatist executive," Tanjug reported, citing AFP.

But, said the French agency, Catalonia's "separatists" are determined to go ahead with the plebiscite "despite Madrid's refusal and a court ban."

This comes a day after a massive rally was held in Barcelona in support of an independence referendum.
