Spain in extradition bid as exiled Catalan leader travels to Denmark

Spanish government refuses decision by sacked Catalonia leader to rule remotely

Belgium Spain Catalonia

Madrid made the request following Puigdemont's first trip outside of Belgium.

"If Catalans can't change their laws and leaders, that means there is no democracy in Catalonia", he said, adding that Catalans "will not surrender to authoritarianism".

He risks being arrested if he returns from self-imposed exile, following rebellion and sedition charges the Spanish government and judges levied against him.

Spain's prime minister removed Puigdemont and his Cabinet from office and dissolved Catalonia's parliament as part of a crackdown on the separatist push.

Earlier, the former chairman of the Catalan government Carles Puigdemont was again nominated as the candidate for the post of head of the region.

The Catalan parliament's legal experts say any presidential contender has to be physically present, but Puigdemont insists he has the legitimate mandate of the people to rule. The Catalan parliament's new governing body must decide by the end of January whether to permit Puigdemont's re-election through a proxy delegate.

Carles Puigdemont travelled after Spanish supreme court judge Pablo Llarena rejected a request by Madrid's top prosecutor to have him detained.


Spain's Supreme Court dropped an arrest warrant in December but the prosecutor applied for it to be reissued on Monday.

If they return they can stay another three months.

Brussels authorities would have sent Puigdemont to Spain on charges of misuse of public funds, but not on charges of rebellion.

But the Spanish government said he could not rule from Brussels either.

But this week, Puigdemont is visiting a university conference in Denmark.

The ongoing crisis unfolded after the Catalan parliament declared unilateral independence in October.

The following day he has been invited to the Danish Parliament by a Faeroese lawmaker, although leading members of the government and opposition have declined to meet him.
