Denmark: Puigdemont says «return» to Spain would be «good news» for democracy

After attending a debate in the Danish Parliament in Copenhagen, Former President of Catalonia Carles Puigdemont gave a statement to the press, in which he discussed his possible return to Spain. «What a powerful sign of this democratic restoration, if I could go freely to hold a debate in our Parliament to listen [to] other parties, [if] all the parliamentary groups say what the consider to say... Еще freely,” Puigdemont said. Puigdemont added that he would risk arrest should he attempt to do this in Spain, and stopped short of promising a return, but said any return of his to Barcelona would «be not only good news for Catalan people who support our cause, but also for Spanish people and Spanish democracy.» Puigdemont has lived in Brussels for three months. He fled Spain after being dismissed as president of Catalonia by the Spanish government following the Catalan unilateral declaration of independence on October 27, 2017. Puigdemont is facing charges of sedition, rebellion and misuse of public funds over his role in the push for the Catalan divorce from Spain.
