The Attorney General died suddenly last weekend on an official visit to Argentina. José Manuel Maza, who was 66, had been in the role for just under a year.

He was taken ill with a kidney infection that rapidly spread through his body.

Maza was known as a conservative judge who was a key player in Madrid's response to the recent Catalan separatist crisis.
