SCHLESWIG – Catalan separatistenleider Carles Puigdemont do not need to be re-secured. The German public prosecutor had requested, but the court of appeal in Schleswig-Holstein concludes now that there is no increased risk is that the politician on the run stores.
The German court has yet to decide whether Puigdemont can be extradited to Spain.
German prosecutors have noted that there is probably still sufficient land to Puigdemont to deliver because of rebellion. A German court ruled earlier that the separatistenleider not for that offence in Spain can be transferred, but it now has new information received from the Spanish authorities.
The German authorities arrested the ex-prime minister of Catalonia earlier this year near the Danish border. The German court has yet to decide whether Puigdemont can be extradited to Spain. He allowed the settlement of the extradition outside the prison walls to wait and see.
