Belgium: Puigdemont free to enjoy Belgian opera jokes Spanish FM

Carles Puigdemont can continue «enjoying the opera and the good life in Belgium» joked Spanish Foreign Minister Alfonso Dastis in Brussels on Tuesday after the former Catalan president’s arrest warrant was withdrawn. Speaking outside European Parliament, Dastis said: «It seems that the reasoning [for withdrawing the European arrest warrant] is that [the judge] does not want to find himself... Еще limited in regards to the crimes which they could try ex-President [Carles] Puigdemont when he returns to Spain.» Despite revoking Puigdemont's arrest warrant, he and four other former Catalan parliament members currently residing in Belgium could be arrested upon returning to Spain for their role in Catalonia's unlawful independence declaration. The former Catalan cabinet members fled to Belgium after Article 155 was invoked by Spain. On Monday a decision was made by a Spanish judge to withdraw the arrest warrant for the former Catalan leader and four other ex-ministers.
