Germany: Catalan Parliament VP confident of Puigdemont's case

Catalan Parliament Vice President Josep Costa expressed confidence that former Catalan President Carles Puigdemont will not be extradited, speaking outside the Neumunster correctional facility on Wednesday. «He is perfectly confident that the German courts will hear his case, that they will hear the lawyers and the evidence that will be provided, that this is a purely political prosecution, that... Еще's this is a politically motivated prosecution that has no legal basis,» he said, adding «and for that reason we are very hopeful that he will not be extradited.» On Monday, a judge in Neumunster ruled that Puigdemont would have to remain in custody, while the decision to extradite him now lies in the hands of German regional courts. The Spanish government is calling for the return of Puigdemont to his native country, where he would face charges of sedition, following his detainment under a European Arrest Warrant in northern Germany on Sunday.
