Germany: Puigdemont in 'excellent conditions', 'full trust' in German justice — lawyer

The lawyer of arrested former Catalan President Carles Puidgemont said his client was in «excellent conditions» and had called for Catalan unity while speaking outside of the correctional facility where Puigdemont is detained in the German city of Neumunster on Tuesday. «It has been almost like a shot of euphoria seeing him with so much strength and determination, so much courage,» lawyer Jaume... Еще Alonso Cuevillas said after visiting his client. Cuevillas was joined by Gonzalo Boye, lawyer of former Catalan counselors Toni Comin and Meritxell Serret, who said that Puigdemont expressed his «full trust in the German legal system.» 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. Monday's ruling allowed Puigdemont to hold an appeal court to consider Spain's arrest warrant. Cuevillas said Puigdemont was aware his detention may be extended, but had «courage and determination to resist it.» 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.
