Dejemeppe said that ousted Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont and four other former regional ministers had presented themselves voluntarily to the police on Sunday morning. According to the prosecutor’s... Еще spokesperson, the “investigating judge has to decide within 24 hours” whether to carry out the EU arrest warrant issued by a Spanish judge on Friday. The five leaders are said to be inside the King's Prosecutor's Office building.
