Puigdemont was detained while crossing the border between... Еще Denmark and Germany on Sunday, and was moved to Neumuenster correctional facility. Puigdemont is facing up to 25 years in prison on charges of sedition, rebellion and misuse of public funds over his role in the push for the Catalan divorce from Spain.
