in EUROPE/POLITICS by

German prosecutors are preparing the paperwork to extradite former Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont back to Spain on charges of rebellion and disturbance of the peace. A German court ruled on 22.5.2018 that Puigdemont, who was detained by German police in March, cannot be rearrested because he does not pose a flight risk. However, the state’s prosecutors want to send the former regional president back to Spain in the light of new video evidence which they say shows “violence perpetrated against the Spanish police forces.”

 

Carles Puigdemont: This is not just about Catalonia. This is about democracy itself

in EUROPE/PRESS RELEASE/REGIONS by

An article about the position of Puigdemont in which, the former catalan president, has spoken about what he thinks about the crisis in Catalonia. In this article he has shown a terrible picture of the situation. Affirming that “Catalonia is right now the only territory in the European Union that has been denied the supreme law its citizens voted for; the parliament that its citizens elected; the president that this parliament elected; and the government that this president appointed in the exercise of his powers. Acting in an arbitrary, undemocratic, and in my view, unlawful manner, the Spanish state decided to dissolve the Catalan parliament in the middle of the legislative term, to dismiss the president and the Catalan government, to intervene in our self-government and the institutions that the Catalans have been building in our nation for centuries” he has emphasized the image of the Spanish Government as an authoritarian one and the image of a central government that is persecuting the leaders of the pro independence movement.
