Journalist (German): «Excuse me, I'm asking you this now, you can't say that questions can't be posed. The question is, if it is decided by the court whether Mr Puigdemont must be extradited or is the decision so that the court has to say that the conditions exist, he can be deported.» Dr. Stephanie Krueger, German Justice Ministry Spokesperson (German): «We are waiting for the judicial... Еще proceedings-» Steffen Seibert, Government Spokesperson (German): «The colleague from the justice ministry has made it clear in an interview last night and that is that the point of the legal regulation of the European arrest warrant is that in principle the decision would be made by the judicial authority, and it is exactly because of this that the judicial authorities of the EU member states have a particular trust in one another. That is the key to understanding why the European arrest warrant is dealt with in such a way and there is nothing else to say about the judicial proceedings at this present time.» German government spokesperson Steffan Seibert highlighted that the decision to extradite exiled Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont now lies in the hands of German regional courts, during a Federal press conference in Berlin on Monday. Seibert explained that the core of the «legal regulation of the European arrest warrant is that in principle the decision would be made by the judicial authority, and it is exactly because of this that the judicial authorities of the EU member states have a particular trust in one another.» German Justice Ministry Spokesperson Stephanie Krueger confirmed that the legal evaluation is carried out by «the Attorney General and the regional court» and it is possible for the Attorney General to retrieve information from both «the Spanish authorities and the German government». 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.
