Belgium: Puigdemont calls on Europe to stop persecution of Catalan leaders

Former Catalan President Carles Puigdemont appealed for European support after Spanish state prosecutors called for sentences of up to 25 years for Catalan separatists involved in last year's secession bid this Friday. Prosecutors called for former Catalan Vice president Oriol Junqueras to be jailed for 25 years on charges of rebellion and misuse of public funds, and for sentences of up to 17... Еще years for other Catalan separatists, for their role in a referendum that Spain ruled unconstitutional. «Having political prisoners is a shame, making a political judgment, persecuting and condemning people for their political action, is to cross all the political lines. Europe cannot be an accomplice with its silence of this abuse,» Puigdemont said. The former President, who has been living in exile in Belgium since fleeing charges in Spain a year ago, launched a new Catalonian separatist party on Saturday.
