France: Puigdemont offered political asylum in Pyrenees

Catalan government leader Carles Puigdemont and his family were offered political asylum in the southern French town of Theza on Thursday. The French Catalan Committee for the self-determination of North Catalonia and the Catalan Unity party said they would even find homes for all members of the Catalan government. The leader of the Committee for the self-determination of Northern Catalonia... Еще, Robert Casanovas, offered a house in Theza to Puigdemont and his family so that “if things get worse they will have the possibility to be in exile here.” The Spanish government is threatening to impose direct rule on Catalonia, which held an independence referendum on the 1st of October that Spain deemed illegal. Thousands of Catalan speakers live in the south of France, mostly in the eastern Pyrenees region by the Mediterranean Coast, territory granted to France by Spain in the 17th Century.
