Catalonia’s ex-president in exile is ready to be “candidate” for the regional election of December 21 and to campaign from abroad. Carles Puigdemont delivered himself to the Belgian justice after having been subjected by a European mandate. He was released on Sunday in Brussels, after a week in the city with four ex-ministers.
Ready to cooperate with Belgian justice, Catalonia’s ex-president is pursued in Spain for “sedition, rebellion and public fund”. He took direction of Belgium two weeks ago to escape from any repression.
The ousted president is now on conditional acquittals with the interdiction to leave the country, the time for the Belgian justice to give a rule on the arrest warrant made by the Spanish justice. In an interview given to a Catalonia radio, the exiled leader implies that his stay in Belgium allows to avoid a wave of violence planned by Madrid. Nevertheless, an extradition procedure is considered by Spain for which the Independence of Catalonia is impossible.
On Wednesday afternoon, the Constitutional Court has cancelled the Declaration of Independence of Catalonia.
